Torrey Smith of the Baltimore Ravens lit up the Cincinnati Bengals for 165 yards and a touchdown off of just six receptions.
This is just one of the big play performances that receivers like Torrey Smith have put together this year. While they aren't the most consistent players in the league, they are players that can torch a defense at any given point for a huge play.
The make up for these players usually consists of two traits: explosiveness and pure speed.
There are some players in the NFL that need to be accounted for on every single play because if they get behind your defense, you may as well start your trot to the sidelines. These players are just limited to wide receivers, but the wide out position has always had a home for guys with great 40-yard times.
Big play ability can be a hard trait to measure, but Torrey Smith and these four players have it for sure.
