B/R NFL 1,000: Top 150 Wide Receivers

0 of 150


    Agility

    9

    Has electric quickness and agility and is able to get away from defenders.

    Blocking

    6

    Strong and dedicated, when the Cards ask their star wideout to block, he delivers.

    Hands

    10

    Rarely does the ball hit the ground when thrown Fitzgerald's way.

    Release

    10

    He has the strength to get great push off the line of scrimmage and is tough to get re-routed.

    Route Running

    10

    Excels no matter the route. Fitzgerald has a long stride but can break down and sink his hips to get in and out of route stems.

    Catch in Traffic

    10

    Has the strength to overpower most cornerbacks when challenged. 

    Speed

    7

    It's unlikely he would impress in a 40-yard dash, but Fitzgerald has the speed where he can stretch deep zones.

    Yards After Catch

    9

    He has good run skills after the catch and can turn a short catch into a long touchdown with just a single missed tackle.

    Vision

    10

    Does a great job adjusting to find the ball, showing good vision and anticipation to make acrobatic catches.

    Health

    10

    Overall

    91

    Fitzgerald doesn't rank as the No. 1 receiver (he's close), but if you talk about the best all-around wide receiver in football, it is hard to find an argument against Larry Fitzgerald as the top player. He may not be as electric or highlight-worthy as others, but he's a quiet technician who simply dominates on the field for the mediocre Cardinals.

1 of 150

    Yards After Catch

    7.5

    Shows some YAC ability, extending to grab the ball without breaking stride and continuing upfield.

    Vision

    8

    Tracks the ball very well and is a master of the back-shoulder fade.

    Health

    4

    Only played in five games last year.

    Overall

    70.5

    A very good wide receiver who saw his 2011 cut down by injury, Joshua Morgan had the potential to be the best of the 49ers wide receivers. He's tough off the line and a solid possession-style receiver in space.

46. Sidney Rice, Seattle Seahawks

105 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Has good quickness and foot speed to change direction in space.

    Blocking

    Rice does a good job pulling down the ball out of the air with quick, strong hands.

    Release

    7.5

    Has good lateral quickness to explode off the line without losing steam.

    Route Running

    8

    Runs with great balance and body lean, easing in and out of breaks.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Not quite strong enough to be an impact in traffic. Will get bumped and pushed around.

    Speed

    8

    6

    Lacks the strength to break free from defenders and pick up yards after the catch.

    Health

    5

    Sat out seven games in 2011.

    Overall

    71

    Sidney Rice battled through injury complications and a change in scheme during his first year in Seattle, and his production dropped off as a result. Rice is a talented receiver with the ideal traits we look for when scouting the position.

45. Santana Moss, Washington Redskins

106 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Very good quickness in and out of his cuts, Moss shows nice open-field speed.

    Blocking

    6

    Lacks the size and strength to drive defenders off the ball.

    6

    Showed a surprisingly large number of drops in 2011, failing to hang on to the ball once it hit his hands.

    Release

    8

    Comes off the line with good quickness, with no side-to-side movement wasting steps.

    Route Running

    8

    Crisp, clean route runner who has nice ability to sink his hips and chance direction.

    Catch in Traffic

    6

    Struggles to extend to catch in traffic.

    Speed

    8

    Has the speed to separate from defenders in his routes.

    Yards After Catch

    5

    Moss didn't show the same second gear in 2011, failing to break free from tacklers who closed in on him.

    Vision

    9

    Tracks the ball extremely well no matter where he is in his route.

    Health

    7

    Missed four games in 2011.

    Overall

    71

    Santana Moss is still a very good receiver, but the Redskin's days of being an explosive option after the catch are gone. Moss will benefit from a better quarterback situation in 2012, but expectations should be lowered.

44. Jacoby Ford, Oakland Raiders

107 of 150

    Agility

    10

    Ford has elite, top-level agility with impressive quickness on and off the ball.

    Blocking

    9

    Won't put many passes on the ground. Shows good, solid hands.

    Can beat a jam when he's in motion or off the ball but will struggle to free the line when pressed on the ball.

    Route Running

    8

    Runs clean routes with a good ability to work within a combination route.

    Catch in Traffic

    5

    Ford lacks the size and strength to make plays in traffic.

    Speed

    10

    Has elite speed for the WR position.

    Yards After Catch

    7

    Quick enough to pick up major yards after the catch but isn't strong enough to break tackles.

    Vision

    5

    Still learning the intricacies of the position and can get his head turned the wrong way.

    Health

    5

    Injured for eight games in 2011.

    Overall

    71

    Jacoby Ford is poised for a breakout year if he can stay healthy. He has elite speed and agility, which should turn into bigger plays after the catch for Oakland in 2012.

43. Devin Hester, Chicago Bears

108 of 150

    Agility

    10

    Hester has unreal agility with great start-and-stop skills and rare burst.

    Blocking

    4

    Can be physical but is more of a crack-back blocker.

    Hands

    4

    Can be very inconsistent, dropping easy passes but making highlight reel plays later.

    Release

    6

    Hester has the great burst to quickly get off the line, but he can get knocked off his route with a solid jam.

    Route Running

    3

    Has inconsistent timing and alignment. Must improve in this area.

    Catch in Traffic

    5

    Doesn't show the concentration to match his courage in going over the middle.

    Speed

    10

    One of the NFL's fastest players.

    Yards After Catch

    9

    Great ability to shift, shake and blow past defenders in space.

    Vision

    10

    Sees the field well, adjusting to the ball in the air with rare athleticism.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any time last season.

    Overall

    71

    Devin Hester's raw abilities show up well in the return game, but to date he's been a very inconsistent fixture at wide receiver. The Bears may intend on making Hester more of a receiver at some point, but as of now his route running and catching are not developed enough for such a move.

42. Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers

109 of 150

    Agility

    8

    A high-level athlete who has good quickness and hip flexibility.

    Blocking

    10

    A strong, dominant blocker who can come off the line and drive-block to set up the run game.

    Hands

    4

    Drops too many passes when wide open. Has issues turning before securing the ball.

    Release

    6

    Can get off the ball with good quickness but will struggle when defenders are physical.

    Route Running

    8

    Crabtree runs great routes (on time) and is always in the right position.

    Catch in Traffic

    5

    Will develop alligator arms at times, failing to extend to reach the football in traffic.

    Speed

    8

    Has good speed and nice quickness. Able to accelerate away from defenders.

    Yards After Catch

    7.5

    Good motor but will struggle to get upfield immediately after his catch.

    Vision

    Struggles to find the ball when coming out of his breaks and route changes.

    Health

    9

    Missed one game in 2011.

    Overall

    71.5

    Crabtree's season was plagued with drops and poor effort in and out of his breaks. He has remarkable talent, but to date that talent hasn't shown up on the field for the former Texas Tech star.

41. Mario Manningham, San Francisco 49ers

110 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Has excellent short-area quickness and solid overall athletic ability.

    Blocking

    4

    Shows below-average effort and technique.

    Hands

    6

    Dropped far too many easy passes in 2011—except for that one big catch in the Super Bowl.

    Release

    8.5

    Has good release when playing off the ball but can be pushed around when he's up on the line.

    Route Running

    6.5

    You have to like Manningham's hips in routes, but his footwork could use a little work.

    Catch in Traffic

    10

    Does a great job making big catches with defenders hanging off his body.

    Speed

    8

    Has the speed to easily outrun cover men.

    Yards After Catch

    4

    For a player with very good speed, Manningham failed to convert it to big plays on the ground.

    Vision

    10

    Has a knack for finding the ball—and locating it at the last second.

    Health

    7

    Missed four games in 2011.

    Overall

    72

    A very good option as a No. 2 and No. 3 receiver in the Giants scheme, Manningham will be asked to take on a much bigger role with the San Francisco 49ers in 2012. He has the speed and route running to be elite.

40. Eddie Royal, San Diego Chargers

111 of 150

    Agility

    9

    Is able to make plays because of his excellent athleticism.

    Blocking

    4

    Is not a good run-blocker. Royal lacks the strength or aggression at the point of impact.

    Hands

    6

    Average hands at best. Does not extend his arms consistently.

    Release

    7

    Uses good leverage at the line of scrimmage to free himself of his defender.

    Route Running

    10

    An elite route runner that can run complex routes because of excellent foot speed, quickness and agility.

    Catch in Traffic

    6

    Not a factor when going up to catch the ball in a crowd.

    Speed

    8

    Top-notch speed. Can separate at the line of scrimmage and stretch the deep zone.

    Yards After Catch

    Excellent vision allows Royal to adjust to the ball in the air.

    Eddie Royal has the intangibles to be a great deep threat for his new team in San Diego.

39. Donald Driver, Green Bay Packers

    6.5

    He's lost a step, but Driver still has good quickness.

    Blocking

    5

    Like his agility, has lost his step a bit and no longer has top-level speed.

    Yards After Catch

    5

    Doesn't have the speed or burst to find yards after the catch.

    Vision

    8

    A smart, heady receiver who finds the ball with ease.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any time last year.

    Overall

    72

    No longer a top option in the Green Bay offense, the 37-year-old Driver is enjoying one of his last years in the NFL. His 2011 season saw a downturn in production and ability, as he slowed down considerably.

38. Laurent Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars

113 of 150

    Agility

    7.5

    Below-average agility. Has good speed but has a tendency to be heavy-footed.

    Health

    9

    Sat out two games in 2011.

    Overall

    72.5

    Laurent Robinson is a very good complementary receiver with the ability to hurt a defense if it doesn't take him seriously. After a very solid year in Dallas, Robinson was rewarded with a giant five-year, $32.5 million pay raise from the Jags this offseason.

37. James Jones, Green Bay Packers

114 of 150

    Agility

    7

    Plays fast with good hip flexibility and nice body control.

    Blocking

    3

    Played a lot in the slot and struggled to be a factor as a blocker.

    Very inconsistent hands with way too many drops for an emerging receiver.

    Release

    Comes off the ball in a hurry and can beat a cushion to separate.

    Route Running

    Yards After Catch

    10

    Tracks the ball well and knows how to anticipate the ball.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any games in 2011.

    Overall

    72.5

    On most teams, James Jones would be a No. 2 WR. In Green Bay he teeters between a No. 3 and No. 5 receiver at times. Jones' inconsistent hands are the biggest obstacle the 28-year-old is facing right now.

36. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos

115 of 150

    Agility

    9

    Has incredibly rare athletic ability but could still work on his body control.

    Blocking

    4

    Doesn't show great effort when engaging defenders.

    Drops too many easy catches, instead making the impossible catches look easy.

    Release

    8

    A big, strong, fast receiver who can get off the ball without issue.

    Route Running

    5.5

    Thomas is a very raw player who is still learning how to execute routes on time.

    Big enough and strong enough to make catches in traffic.

    Speed

    9

    Health

    6

    Missed five games in 2011.

    Overall

    72.5

    One of the brightest young receivers in the NFL, Demaryius Thomas showed what he could do in the Broncos' late-season run—and did so with a subpar quarterback. If any player has a chance to breakout in 2012 with Peyton Manning in Denver, it's Thomas.

35. Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia Eagles

116 of 150

    Agility

    10

    Maclin is a dangerous, versatile athlete with exceptional skills.

    Blocking

    5.5

    Has good bulk and strength but can fail to sustain blocks.

    Hands

    6.5

    Maclin has good hands, but he's too inconsistent to be scored at a higher level.

    Release

    Gets off the line with a clean release, using his speed to move laterally and up the field.

    Route Running

    Health

    8

    Missed three games last year.

    Overall

    73

    Jeremy Maclin is one of the better athletes in the NFL, but he's yet to use that athletic ability to generate great production. While a lack of opportunity does hurt Maclin in Philly, basic traits like blocking and catching are keeping his score down.

34. Emmanuel Sanders, Pittsburgh Steelers

117 of 150

    Agility

    7

    The Steeler wins at the line with good initial quickness and nice all-around athleticism.

    Blocking

    10

    Determined and aggressive, Sanders locks on and drives defenders away from the ball with ease.

    Hands

    9

    Sanders was impressive in that he rarely dropped catchable passes. One of the better pure pass-catchers we charted.

    Release

    6.5

    Has a little trouble getting off the line against press coverage but has a quick release.

    Route Running

    6

    Still very raw in coming out of breaks in his routes but showed great progress throughout the 2011 season.

    Catch in Traffic

    Speed

    8

    Able to explode off the line and create in space due to legitimate top-notch speed.

    6

    Injured and missed five games in 2011.

    Overall

    73

    Emmanuel Sanders impressed with a big improvement in 2011, showing technique to match his athletic ability. Once Sanders gets his timing down better, he has tools to be a top-15 (or better) talent.

33. Devery Henderson, New Orleans Saints

118 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Can be a little stiff with his hips and change-of-direction movements.

    Blocking

    3

    Doesn't show max effort or strength to be a good blocker.

    Hands

    8

    Henderson rarely puts the ball on the ground.

    Release

    7.5

    Has a strong first step and the quickness to eat up yards post-snap.

    Route Running

    6

    At his best when running straight-line routes, as he can be stiff changing direction.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Has good focus and hand-eye coordination to bring in tough catches from Drew Brees.

    Speed

    10

    Didn't miss any games in 2011.

    Overall

    73

    Devery Henderson has developed into a nice deep threat in the Saints offense, but to date he's been little more than this. He has the tools to be a solid all-around receiver if he can further develop his route running.

32. Doug Baldwin, Seattle Seahawks

119 of 150

    Agility

    7

    Has nice change-of-direction skills but will struggle to plant and go with solid burst.

    Blocking

    8

    A strong, physical blocker who can power off the line and get into defenders.

    Baldwin improved throughout the year but could still work on his timing and positioning.

    Catch in Traffic

    Has long arms and strong hands to pull the ball down in a crowd.

    Speed

    8

    Shows good burst and acceleration off the line. Has the speed to run away from the defense.

    Yards After Catch

    Didn't miss any games last year.

    Overall

    73.5

    A promising young receiver, Doug Baldwin enjoyed a very good rookie campaign in 2011 despite inconsistency from the signal-callers in Seattle. With a more solidified situation in place next year (hopefully) with Matt Flynn under center, Baldwin should see his numbers and play improve.

31. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

120 of 150

    Agility

    7

    Has a thick, strong frame that limits his flexibility.

    Blocking

    4

    Strong enough to be a good blocker, but Jackson does well to run off defenders.

    Hands

    6

    Dropped some easy passes in 2011 and needs to rededicate himself to consistently looking the ball in.

    Release

    Yards After Catch

    4

    Doesn't pick up many yards post-catch due to limited speed and burst.

    Vision

    Has good concentration to locate the ball but can struggle with tucking it away.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any games last season.

    Overall

    74

    Vincent Jackson has top-level talent, but his play dropped off at times in 2011. He needs an injury-free season in 2012 for Tampa Bay and better control with his hands over the middle and up the seam.

30. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins

121 of 150

    Agility

    6

    Can be stiff in the hips, showing little wiggle or burst.

    Blocking

    4

    Not much of a factor as a blocker.

    Hands

    8

    Has strong, consistent hands. Does a good job extending to make catches.

    Release

    8

    Garcon is strong enough to beat press coverage off the line and can dip his hips to run through a jam.

    Route Running

    9

    Shows great body control and footwork to get in and out of his breaks with great timing.

    Catch in Traffic

    6

    Not afraid to jump into traffic and make catches but lacks strength here to be a great in-traffic receiver.

    Speed

    7

    Has nice speed, but his game isn't built on his ability to accelerate past DBs.

    Yards After Catch

    7

    Picks up good yards after the catch due more to his vision and anticipation than his speed.

    Vision

    9

    One of the best in the game at adjusting to the ball and locating it in the air.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any time in 2011.

    Overall

    74

    Garcon's production took a major hit in 2011 when Peyton Manning went down, but his baseline skills are still there. He's a smart route runner and solid possession-style receiver who can pick up yards after the catch.

29. Santonio Holmes, New York Jets

122 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Has good open-field quickness with nice burst out of his stance.

    Blocking

    1

    A major weak spot here. Very poor blocker in terms of effort and technique from this Jets captain.

    Hands

    6

    Holmes will make tough catches with his hands but also turns too fast before securing the ball.

    Release

    8

    Gets off the ball quickly with good hand use and shoulder dip to beat the jam.

    Route Running

    10

    Has elite balance and body control, with crisp routes and change-of-direction skills.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    When the pressure is on, Holmes delivers with big catches in traffic.

    Speed

    8

    Still has more than enough speed to accelerate off the line of scrimmage and out of breaks in his routes.

    Yards After Catch

    6

    Good speed, but gets too cute in space and can lose yards instead of heading upfield.

    Vision

    10

    A solid ability to recognize coverage and track the football.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any games last year.

    Overall

    Holmes' antics on the sidelines and his effort aren't being graded here, only his ability on the football field. Holmes still has great talent, but he has to play hard all the time—that's not being seen consistently.

28. Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis Colts

123 of 150

    Agility

    7

    Wayne has lost a step, but he's still showing good quickness and foot speed.

    Blocking

    4

    Takes good angles to prevent defenders from making tackles, but he's not much of an actual blocker.

    Hands

    9

    One of the better receivers in the NFL over the last decade, the unwavering Colt still has exceptional hands.

    Release

    10

    Has a great combination of alignment, balance, body control and plain ol' smarts to get free off the line of scrimmage without getting caught up.

    Route Running

    10

    Textbook route-running skills. His quick slants and digs are an example for every young receiver to follow.

    Catch in Traffic

    7

    Lacks strength and burst to close on the ball and make catches in traffic.

    Speed

    6

    Has seen his speed decrease over the last year. In 2011 he was just above average.

    Yards After Catch

    5

    Doesn't generate much after the catch anymore.

    Vision

    7

    Still shows very good ability to adjust and find the ball, but doesn't show great open-field vision.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any games in 2011.

    Overall

    75

    Reggie Wayne has made a damn good case for the Hall of Fame, but his 2011 season didn't live up to his past successes (for obvious reasons). Wayne is showing his age and may be nearing the end of his brilliant career.

27. Brandon Lloyd, New England Patriots

124 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Has good overall quickness and balance, putting himself in a top tier at WR.

    Blocking

    7

    Makes good initial contact and does a nice job churning his feet.

    Hands

    9

    Does a good job securing the ball—it's rare to see a pass fall through Lloyd's hands.

    Release

    8

    Can win in press coverage consistently, showing good hand use to disengage.

    Route Running

    9

    A clean, classic route runner who has a great mix of timing and technique.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Not afraid to poke his head in and make plays between defenders.

    Speed

    7

    Lacks elite top-end speed, relying more on quickness than raw speed.

    Yards After Catch

    2

    Doesn't show much post-catch due to limited speed and strength. This is Lloyd's biggest weakness.

    Vision

    8

    Does a good job tracking the ball over either shoulder but can get lost on comeback routes.

    Health

    9

    Sat out one game last season.

    Overall

    75

    Brandon struggled with a team change in the middle of the 2011 season, which threw a wrench in his production. When looking for a perimeter receiver who can move the chains without providing a ton of YAC ability, Lloyd is your man. He's a very good possession receiver with solid, consistent hands and routes.

26. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints

125 of 150

    Agility

    7

    Colston is a good player, but the Saint is definitely not known for his agility.

    Blocking

    6

    Has the toughness and strength to be an effective stock-blocker.

    Hands

    10

    Few things are as consistent as Marques Colston's hands. The sun comes to mind, but not much else.

    Release

    8

    Gets off the line more with strength than anything, which requires him to get his hands dirty.

    Route Running

    8

    A smooth route runner who excels in the Saints' pass tree but could struggle elsewhere due to limited quickness and acceleration.

    Catch in Traffic

    9

    Strong enough to catch in traffic with the best of the best.

    Speed

    6.5

    Lumbers through routes at times. Colston doesn't offer much speed.

    Yards After Catch

    4

    Limited speed and agility keep him from bringing much to the table after the catch.

    Vision

    8

    Has good ability to track and find the ball on his back hip and when extending over top.

    Health

    9

    Missed one game in 2011.

    Overall

    75.5

    Colston is a top receiver for the New Orleans Saints, but watching his overall skill set, it is tough to imagine him succeeding outside the system there. Colston wisely re-signed with the Saints this offseason rather than test that theory.

25. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos

126 of 150

    Agility

    7

    Has nice change-of-direction skills but will struggle to accelerate past faster corners and safeties.

    Blocking

    7

    Does a good job running off defenders, and will wall off, but doesn’t get locked on.

    Hands

    6

    Not sure-handed but will catch a high number of targets thrown his way.

    Release

    8

    Has a great first step and is strong enough to hand out punishment to those who try to jam him up.

    Route Running

    8

    Decker can sink his hips to get in and out of his breaks with good quickness and body control.

    Catch in Traffic

    7

    Has good hands but can show inconsistent hands, courage and concentration to make the tough catch.

    Speed

    7

    Has the speed where he can stretch deep zones but won't run away from top corners.

    Yards After Catch

    6.5

    Limited speed prevents him from being much of a factor post-catch.

    Vision

    9

    Is able to flip his shoulders and keep an eye on the ball in flight.

    Health

    10

    Healthy for all 16 last season.

    Overall

    75.5

    Eric Decker had a good 2011 season, improving as a route runner and receiver. If you thought 2011 was good, wait until Peyton Manning is throwing passes his way in 2012.

24. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

127 of 150

    Agility

    9

    Has a rare combination of speed and fluid footwork.

    Blocking

    8

    A strong, intimidating blocker who is a big asset in the run game.

    Hands

    6

    Was unprepared at times for the speed of NFL passes. Let too many hit the ground in 2011.

    Release

    6

    Needs to better learn how to use his quickness to explode off the line and not waste any movement.

    Route Running

    6

    Came into the NFL raw as a route runner and was limited due to the lockout in how much he could improve as a rookie.

    Catch in Traffic

    7

    Big and strong, Jones is fearless going over the middle.

    Speed

    10

    Has rare speed, putting himself in an elite category of runners in the NFL.

    Yards After Catch

    10

    Excellent speed and size allow him to break tackles and then accelerate away from defenders.

    Vision

    6

    There's room for improvement here, as Jones could be more aware of his place on the field.

    Health

    8

    Missed three games in 2011.

    Overall

    76

    As the No. 6 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, Jones has amazing talent and potential. Like most rookies, his progress was hurt by the NFL lockout, which lowered his immediate impact last year. Given a full offseason to train and learn, the former Crimson Tide star should emerge as one of the NFL's best in 2012.

23. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

128 of 150

    Agility

    10

    An impressive athlete, Bryant has everything we look for in athletic skill sets.

    Blocking

    6

    Able to press off the line and re-route defenders. Could show better hand placement though.

    Hands

    8

    Made big strides in 2011, extending his hands better to make catches and using better judgement on when to tuck and run.

    Release

    8

    Big and strong, Bryant is tough to beat off the line of scrimmage.

    Route Running

    6

    Has very good quickness but runs out of control. Needs to develop further in his ability to sink his weight and plant his feet.

    Catch in Traffic

    7

    Has nice strength and leaping ability but will drop passes in traffic if he starts hearing footsteps.

    Speed

    9

    It's a rare day when Bryant gets caught from behind.

    Yards After Catch

    7

    Has all the ability in the world, but too often he's running laterally instead of heading upfield.

    Vision

    6

    The one big area where Bryant can improve in 2012. His ability to locate and track the ball is just average.

    Health

    9

    Missed one game last season.

    Overall

    76

    One of the more impressive athletes at the position, now it's time for Dez Bryant to improve as a technician. If he can mature on and off the field, the Cowboys have a star in the making.

22. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears

129 of 150

    Agility

    7.5

    Doesn't have great quickness or flexibility but is athletic enough to be an NFL starter.

    Blocking

    4

    Despite having great size and strength, he doesn't bring much as a blocker.

    Hands

    6

    Marshall's biggest weakness is the inconsistency in his receiving skills. He's dropping way too many easy passes.

    Release

    8

    Big and strong off the line of scrimmage, can beat a jam without issue.

    Route Running

    9

    Marshall shows good ability to separate with his size to make up for a lack of speed.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Strong hands and long arms allow Marshall to make tough catches in traffic.

    Speed

    7

    Lacks the second gear to accelerate away from defenders in coverage and after the catch.

    Yards After Catch

    6.5

    Will fight for extra yards but doesn't bring much speed in the open field.

    Vision

    10

    Does a great job adjusting to find the ball, showing good vision and anticipation.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any time in 2011.

    Overall

    76

    Brandon Marshall has the talent to be a top-10 wideout, but that talent doesn't always show up. The best word to describe his 2011 season would be inconsistent. A second word would be disappointing. Marshall has too much talent to drop as many passes as he does. Will be interesting how he does with Jay Cutler and co. in Chicago.

21. Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens

130 of 150

    Agility

    7

    Doesn't show great quickness but has nice overall athletic ability and solid strength.

    Blocking

    5

    Works well to wall off defenders but rarely gets his hands on a player and drives him out of the play.

    Hands

    7

    Dropped too many passes over the middle in 2011.

    Release

    8

    Size and strength are a major factor in Boldin's ability to pressure cornerbacks into turning and running.

    Route Running

    9

    A good technician when it comes to timing, alignment and planting his foot in the dirt and changing direction.

    Catch in Traffic

    9

    Is strong enough to box out defenders and make tough catches.

    Speed

    6

    The Raven lacks the speed of top-end receivers.

    Yards After Catch

    6

    Is able to break tackles after the catch but doesn't show much ability to run away from the defender.

    Vision

    10

    Excellent at finding the football in the air and adjusting his body to make the catch.

    Health

    9

    Missed two games in 2011.

    Overall

    76

    Boldin hasn't been the same receiver since leaving Arizona, but the 31-year-old is a technically sound route runner who brings toughness and consistency as a No. 1 receiver.

20. Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys

131 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Can struggle to plant and go, but Austin is a good overall athlete.

    Blocking

    8

    You have to like his effort and technique for a smaller-bodied WR.

    Hands

    8

    A solid receiver, Austin will still put some easy catches on the turf.

    Release

    8

    Has a great first step and is strong enough to hand out punishment to corners who try to jam him up.

    Route Running

    8

    A consistent route runner and understands how to get separation from defenders.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Competitive to the ball when in a crowd and will elevate to high-point the catch.

    Speed

    8

    Austin has the speed to stretch the field and get into deep zones.

    Yards After Catch

    7

    Austin wasn't an impact player after the catch for Dallas in 2011.

    Vision

    8

    Does a good job tracking the ball over either shoulder but can get lost on comeback routes.

    Health

    6

    Injured for six games last season.

    Overall

    77

    Miles Austin is a solid route runner with good enough speed to be a true No. 1 on the edge. He can be a weapon but is more of a possession receiver who will pick up safe yards and move the chains.

19. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers

132 of 150

    Agility

    9

    An incredibly quick athlete who has great burst and change-of-direction ability.

    Blocking

    4

    Small and lacking the strength to bring much in blocking. Could learn a thing or two from Hines Ward.

    Hands

    7

    Will drop a few, especially when running at full speed.

    Release

    8

    Playing mostly off the ball, Brown was able to come off the line cleanly. Would struggle when playing on the line of scrimmage.

    Route Running

    8

    Was raw at the beginning of the year but improved greatly over the course of the season, showing better body control and awareness.

    Catch in Traffic

    7

    Though lack of size comes into play, Brown is fearless.

    Speed

    9

    Exceptional quickness and burst add to the fact that Brown has a great second gear to get away from defenders.

    Yards After Catch

    8

    Elusive in space, Brown has the chance to be elite in his YAC production.

    Vision

    7

    A developing skill, Brown could do better to adjust and track the ball thrown to his back shoulder.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any time last year.

    Overall

    77

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have a great receiver in the making with Antonio Brown. His speed, quickness and presence on routes are some of the best work we saw from young players at the position.

18. Robert Meachem, San Diego Chargers

133 of 150

    Agility

    9

    Meachem shows the quick hips and feet to dominate in space and on the edge.

    Blocking

    9

    A strong stock blocker who will come off the ball and strike with a balanced, controlled punch.

    Hands

    7

    Let a few passes get through his fingertips but is a solid pass-catcher overall.

    Release

    7.5

    Uses his speed to work off the line but could stand to improve hand use in his releases.

    Route Running

    7

    Gets a little sloppy at times when asked to cut. Is more of a deep-ball runner.

    Catch in Traffic

    7

    Can go up to challenge on high points but isn't very strong over the middle.

    Speed

    10

    Has dynamic, electric speed that is tough to keep up with.

    Yards After Catch

    3

    When catching underneath, Meachem doesn't show much ability to turn upfield and separate. When catching deep, there's usually very little field left to run through.

    Vision

    8

    Tracks well on deep balls, perhaps the best in the league, but will lose sight of the ball underneath.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any games in 2011.

    Overall

    77.5

    Robert Meachem has made his living as one of the best deep-ball receivers in the NFL. He brings a good combination of speed and agility to extend his routes, pushing secondaries off the ball, which allows him to create separation for big catches down the field.

17. Stevie Johnson, Buffalo Bills

134 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Johnson has the required agility to make quick cuts and get in and out of route stems without slowing down.

    Blocking

    4

    Shows good leg drive but not the hand placement or consistency to score higher.

    Hands

    7

    Johnson will let balls get into his body, resulting in drops. Needs to do a better job extending to make the catch on the run.

    Release

    8

    Uses a good combination of quickness and lateral moves to come off the line in a hurry without getting caught up.

    Route Running

    8

    Shows good timing and body control off his breaks. At 6'2" he isn't the biggest of WRs, but Johnson runs well on short and intermediate routes to make himself a big target for his quarterback.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Strong enough to get between defenders and still come down with the ball.

    Speed

    9

    Has a second gear that makes him tough to catch in the open field.

    Yards After Catch

    7

    Johnson is able to accelerate away from defenders but can needlessly look to make moves in space too often.

    Vision

    9

    Sees the field extremely well and has no trouble keeping tracking of the ball.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any games in 2011.

    Overall

    78

    The former Kentucky Wildcat and seventh-round pick shot out of the gate in 2011 but saw his impact fade throughout the season as injuries and poor play hindered the Buffalo offense. Johnson's value on this offense, though, is huge, and he still managed his second straight 1,000-yard campaign. The Bills smartly re-signed Johnson to a new five-year deal this offseason.

16. Percy Harvin, Minnesota Vikings

135 of 150

    Agility

    10

    Has rare athletic ability with supernatural quickness and strength for his size.

    Blocking

    4

    Is strong enough to be an impact but doesn't always lock on and drive off the ball.

    Hands

    7

    Dropped too many passes in 2011 where he was an offender of running before securing.

    Release

    7

    Comes off the line with great quickness but can be rocked off the line at times.

    Route Running

    7

    Has great quickness in and out of stems but doesn't have a fully developed route tree.

    Catch in Traffic

    5

    Will short-arm passes thrown over the middle into traffic at times. Must overcome this hesitation for his young QB.

    Speed

    10

    Has elite-level speed that lets him make big plays in the open field.

    Yards After Catch

    10

    Another major strong suit, Harvin is one of the more electric receivers in the NFL when he has the ball in his hands.

    Vision

    8

    Does a nice job finding the ball and anticipating when and where he needs to be.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any games in 2011.

    Overall

    78

    Percy Harvin is first and foremost an amazing athlete. As he moves on from injuries and continues to learn the position, this soon-to-be 24-year-old has a bright future in the NFL.

15. Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants

136 of 150

    Agility

    7.5

    Has solid quickness and athletic ability but can be stiff in turning his hips over at times.

    Blocking

    6

    Can improve but has the strength to lock on to defenders and prevent them from getting to the runner.

    Hands

    9

    Nicks rarely puts the ball on the ground, showing strong and consistent hands.

    Release

    8

    Strong enough to fight defenders off the line, Nicks is big enough and quick enough to press off the ball.

    Route Running

    8

    Nicks has good footwork and shows the ability to plant and release in his routes.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Good concentration and strong hands make it easy for the Giant to pull down the ball in traffic.

    Speed

    7.5

    Lacks elite speed but has enough quickness to make up ground in space and threaten coverages.

    Yards After Catch

    6

    Doesn't bring the speed or quickness to make big plays on the ground after the catch.

    Vision

    9

    Has great vision for finding the ball over the top and coming off his back shoulder.

    Health

    9

    Sat out one game last year from injury.

    Overall

    78

    Nicks is one of those receivers primed for a big jump up the board in 2012. He has the ability to be great and brings scary ability in the red zone for the Giants offense.

14. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles

137 of 150

    Agility

    10

    Jackson has deadly quickness and agility on and off the ball.

    Blocking

    4.5

    Lacks the size to stick defenders and keep them from getting to the runner.

    Hands

    6

    Jackson can make great catches, but he struggles to adjust and make consistent catches when on the move.

    Release

    8

    Has a knack for getting off the line smoothly with great burst and lateral agility.

    Route Running

    8

    Jackson runs with smooth feet and has the quickness to stick his foot in the ground and make quick cuts, leaving defenders guessing.

    Catch in Traffic

    5.5

    Is not afraid to throw himself in the middle of the defense to make catches. Still, Jackson's size inevitably affects him in traffic.

    Speed

    10

    Jackson is one of the faster players in the game, showing incredible burst and the deep speed to take off upfield.

    Yards After Catch

    9

    Can pick up yards in big chunks after the catch with amazing quickness and vision.

    Vision

    8

    Can track the ball without issue, no matter where he is on the field.

    Health

    9

    Missed one game in 2011.

    Overall

    78

    DeSean Jackson didn't have his most productive season in 2011, though that is undoubtedly partly attributable to his discontent with his contract status. As his highlight reels will attest, he's still one of the most electric players at wideout, and his speed and versatility are something to behold.

13. Kenny Britt, Tennessee Titans

138 of 150

    Agility

    8

    Britt has good athleticism, but his lower body can get heavy at times when changing direction.

    Blocking

    7.5

    Strong at the point of attack, Britt does a good job keeping his side of the field clean.

    Hands

    9

    Rarely drops passes for Tennessee, showing strong hands and great concentration.

    Release

    8

    Will open himself up to taking body shots by pressing corners, but Britt works free with quick hands and nice quickness.

    Route Running

    9

    An underrated technician, he has enough speed to break out of his route and maintain separation.

    Catch in Traffic

    9

    Improved concentration allowed him to be better in traffic during 2011. A nice vertical doesn't hurt either.

    Speed

    8

    Britt doesn't have elite speed, but he's fast enough to create separation.

    Yards After Catch

    8

    A strong, physical runner who excels at running upfield after the catch.

    Vision

    9

    Can read coverages and adjust on the move to find openings in the defense.

    Health

    4

    Missed a big part of 2011 with injury.

    Overall

    79.5

    When healthy, and not in trouble off the field, Kenny Britt has the talent of a top-five wide receiver. Though the Titans' first-round pick back in '09, Britt is still just 23, is strong, possesses good quickness, and has great hands to boot.

12. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs

139 of 150

    Agility

    7

    Has some explosion off the ball but lacks elite lateral agility to make quick moves in and out of cuts.

    Blocking

    7

    Has good strength and is a dedicated blocker when leading the charge to propel the run.

    Hands

    7

    Flashes great hands but lacks consistency.

    Release

    8

    Uses his size and strength to physically break free at the line of scrimmage.

    Route Running

    8

    Has the ability to drop his weight and get in and out of his routes, but lacks the quickness to accelerate consistently. Solid overall.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Has nice strength when catching in traffic, showing an ability to go up and get the ball.

    Speed

    The 6'2", 221-pound Bowe doesn't have great speed but is fast enough to pull away in coverage.

    Yards After Catch

    6.5

    Has a little bit of shake to his game but doesn't post big run after catch numbers.

    Vision

    Tracks the ball well over both shoulders.

    Health

    10

    Didn't miss any time in 2011.

    Overall

    79.5

    Bowe has the all-around ability to be elite, but so far he's inconsistent. While he has the size, speed and strength to dominate, Bowe needs to improve on his drops before we can move him ahead of other receivers.

11. Victor Cruz, New York Giants

140 of 150

    Agility

    10

    Has exceptional quickness and agility, showing the ability to shake defenders in his routes and with the ball in his hands.

    Blocking

    1

    Played mostly in the slot in 2011 and wasn't able to show the strength or technique to be a solid blocker.

    Hands

    6

    Cruz makes big catches in big games, but in routine games he'll drop passes and fail to secure the ball before turning upfield.

    Release

    Lacks great size but makes up with his quickness and burst to effectively come off the line of scrimmage without being interrupted.

    Route Running

    8

    A quick, fluid route runner who can explode through breaks and create separation.

    Catch in Traffic

    7

    Cruz is fearless when in traffic, but his lacking strength hurts his ability to always pull down the ball.

    Speed

    10

    He may not time exceptionally well, but few players are faster on the field than Victor Cruz.

    Yards After Catch

    10

    Runs scared—meaning once he catches the ball, he runs like people are chasing him for his life. And it works to allow him to create big plays after the catch.

    Vision

    10

    Sees the field exceptionally well, showing great vision to find and locate the ball off the snap.

    Cruz is well known for his big plays and monumental catches, and fittingly so. He's a quickly improving receiver who is still raw as a route runner and receiver. Coming off an amazing 1,536-yard season, the sky is the limit for the undrafted wideout in 2010.

10. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons

141 of 150

    Agility

    8

    A big receiver with nice hip swivel and foot speed.

    Blocking

    4.5

    Has the ideal size/strength ratio but doesn't always show great technique, hurting his score considerably.

    Hands

    7.5

    Will drop the occasional easy pass but is otherwise solid here.

    Release

    9

    Big, strong and fast, White is tough to pressure at the line of scrimmage and often finds a clean release.

    Route Running

    9

    Has the speed to stretch the field deep and also shows nice quickness and body control on comeback routes.

    Catch in Traffic

    8

    Makes tough catches over the middle, showing good courage and concentration for the Falcons.

    Speed

    8

    White has the speed to separate downfield and shows the athleticism and burst to run away post-catch.

    Yards After Catch

    6

    Isn't a home run guy after the catch per se, but White has the strength to break tackles and fall forward.

    Vision

    10

    Tracks the ball well on both short and deep routes.

    A do-it-all receiver who is a true No. 1 for Matt Ryan and Atlanta and has four consecutive Pro Bowls to his name. White backs up his superb traits with excellent production and overall athletic ability.

9. Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers

142 of 150

    Agility

    9

    A naturally strong, quick WR who can accelerate in and out of breaks with ease.

    Blocking

    7.5

    Strong and mean at the point of attack, Smith is an accomplished blocker.

    Hands

    7

    Struggled at times to reel the ball in, but Smith has top-level hands the majority of the time.

    Release

    6.5

    Can be re-routed at the line if he doesn't get the first step on his man.

    Route Running

    9

    Has the speed to streak up the seam and the quickness to break off routes and work back to create separation.

    Catch in Traffic

    6

    Exceptional courage, but at 5'9" and 185, lacks the strength or size to always be an impact in traffic.

    Speed

    8.5

    Still has it. Smith shows good speed to burn up the field.

    Yards After Catch

    8

    Explosive and elusive in space, picks up nice yards after the catch.

    Vision

    9

    Is able to flip his shoulders and keep an eye on the ball in flight.

    Smith transformed himself into more of a deep threat in 2011, his 11th year in the league, opening up his game to match rookie quarterback Cam Newton. His explosion off the line and his ability to track the ball deep make Smith one of the best in the game.

8. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals

143 of 150

    Agility

    9

    Is an excellent athlete with deceptive agility to break free in coverage.

    Blocking

    5

    A solid perimeter blocker but isn't physical enough to stay connected and prevent plays on the ball-carrier.

    Hands

    9

    Green has an extensive receiving radius that allows him to extend to make difficult catches.

    Release

    8

    Has a great first step and is strong enough to hand out punishment to those who try to jam him up.

    Route Running

    8

    He can sink his hips to get in and out of his breaks with good quickness. Still learning, however.

    Catch in Traffic

    9

    Excellent in traffic with good body control and very impressive leaping ability.

    Speed

    7.5

    Green has speed and burst off the line of scrimmage to stretch deep zones.

    Yards After Catch

    6

    Good but not great speed prevents him from being much of a factor post-catch.

    Vision

    10

    Does a great job adjusting to find the ball, showing good vision and anticipation.

    9

    Green missed one game and battled injury in others.

    A.J. Green exploded onto the scene in 2011 after an impressive three seasons at UGA, showing the talent that made him the No. 4 pick overall and being selected to the Pro Bowl in his first pro season. The Bengals have a truly talented receiver on their hands with the potential to become the game's best.

7. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers

144 of 150

    Agility

    9

    Is an excellent athlete with the burst and strength to win battles on the outside.

    A high-level route runner who can sink his hips and explode out of routes.

    Catch in Traffic

    7.5

    Flashes potential but has inconsistent hands (in traffic) to make the tough catch.

    10

    Considerably faster than his 40-time would indicate, Nelson has legitimate downfield speed with elite burst and acceleration.

    Yards After Catch

    The Kansas State product's stock took off in 2011, as he proved his worth as the No. 2 in the Green Bay offense. His 18.6 yards/reception was near tops in the league last season. Throw out production and look at hands, speed and route running, and Jordy Nelson is one of the best.

6. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans

145 of 150

    Agility

    10

    A rare and exceptional combination of size, speed and athleticism.

    Blocking

    4

    Has been better in previous years, and could have been limited by injury, but didn't show much as a blocker for the Texans in 2011.

    Hands

    8

    Catches well when the ball is away from his body, showing a first-class catching radius.

    10

    Based on 2011 alone, Johnson struggled to pick up big yards after the catch and utilize said elite speed.

    Does a great job adjusting to find the ball, showing good vision and anticipation.

    Health

    5

    Struggled with injury throughout the 2011 season (and career).

    Were it not for injury, Andre Johnson would be contending for the No. 1 ranking. A five-time Pro Bowl selection and four-time All-Pro, Johnson's overall ability, including route running and vision, is near unparalleled.

5. Greg Jennings, Green Bay Packers

146 of 150

    Agility

    8

    An excellent athlete with solid agility.

    Blocking

    5.5

    Can be timid to make contact. Too pretty to get dirty.

    Hands

    8

    Shows soft hands and good extension to bring in the ball.

    Release

    10

    Comes off the snap with good presence and nice burst, making it tough for corners to get their hands on the 5'11", 198-pounder.

    Speed

    9

    Has the burst to separate from defenders and can maintain the separation.

    Jennings' numbers (67 and 949, nine TDs) may not be elite, but his ability is. Few receivers in the NFL bring his level of route running and hands in a total package. Jennings is one of the best route runners we saw in scouting the game's best.

4. Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers

147 of 150

    Agility

    10

    Has rare speed in his first few yards and good body control down the field.

    An elite deep threat, Mike Wallace has become a truly elite NFL wide receiver a few years out of college. His potential and ceiling remain high, as Wallace can still stand to develop better routes underneath. What Wallace brings in terms of hands, yards after catch and deep speed precipitates the pace of the Steelers offense.

3. Wes Welker, New England Patriots

148 of 150

    Agility

    9

    A very quick receiver and superb footwork.

    Blocking

    5

    Strong for his size but can struggle to win in one-on-one blocks.

    Hands

    7

    Usually more than reliable, Welker did have an uncharacteristic number of drops in 2011. Most of these were passes that he touched but failed to put away before turning his body.

    Release

    9

    Works hard to get off the line, using his quickness and leverage to come free of defenders.

    Route Running

    10

    Great instincts. Welker is unsurpassed and the league's best at working through coverages and finding soft zones to sit down in.
