    Your Ranking of the League's Top 25 Receivers

    I feel like one of the most common conversations between Packers fans as of late is how to evaluate the worth of Jordy and Cobb and how they would fare on the receiver market. It got me thinking about how I would rank the league's wide outs. It's a fun position to rank and everyone has different views on it. So, what are you rankings of the top 25 and, if either of our guys aren't ranked, where would they be?

    We're talking ability and value, not production.


    Mine:

    1. Calvin Johnson
    2. Andre Johnson
    3. Demaryius Thomas
    4. Julio Jones
    5. AJ Green
    6. Larry Fitzgerald
    7. Dez Bryant
    8. Josh Gordon
    9. Brandon Marshall
    10. Alshon Jeffrey
    11. Victor Cruz
    12. Wes Welker
    13. Jordy Nelson
    14. Reggie Wayne
    15. Vincent Jackson
    16. Percy Harvin
    17. Pierre Garcon
    18. Michael Crabtree
    19. Greg Jennings
    20. Torrey Smith
    21. Eric Decker
    22. Randall Cobb
    23. Antonio Brown
    24. Michael Floyd
    25. Desean Jackson

    Right now. I wouldn't put Cruz or Welker above Jordy. I also think the 33 year old Andre Johnson is way too high.

    No Colston or Roddy ?? If Percy can stay healthy he's a top 10 player, and IMO Josh Gordon is top 3 in the league already. Look what he did with that QB situation.

    Colston was in contention for one of the last few spots. Roddy, not so much.

    Roddy blows.

    So overrated, always was. Made his money running 6 yard routes that the defense let him have and was leading the league in targets over a 5 year span.

    Now he gets the 2nd best CB and no help in coverage ever.


    Plus I swear he's a woman.

    Cobb is better than Cruz...

    I honestly couldn't argue with your list at all. It's really that subjective that everyone from 2-10 is pretty much interchangeable.

    25. DeSean (should have been higher, forgot him, probably around 18ish, too lazy to fix it.

    I obviously would vehemently contest your #13 ranking of Andre Johnson. But to each their own.

    He's about to fall off the cliff in my estimation.

    I watched HOU a few times last year, he still gets open but he's not near the athlete he once was. They throw the ball to him every 3rd pass. He had to have led the NFL in targets or VERY close.

    Thing is, they don't give him the attention they used to. He's basically a really good version of Roddy White now, he's just feasting off getting a ton of targets.


    Josh Gordon is easily superior. So is AJ Green IMO.

    Better route runner than either and still has great jump ball skills, body positioning/control and vice grip hands. He's no longer an A+ burner, but I think he's still a very good athlete at wide out. It's sad that, if he ever gets to play with an above average quarterback, it will be when he's long past his prime. What a waste.

    Also, FYI, AJ Green had more targets than Andre and still reeled in less catches with the benefit of far better quarterback play.

    Andy Dalton blows. All he does is stare at Green. Everyone knows the ball is going there. AJG is doubled WAY more and receives WAY more attention than AJ at this point.


    I don't think you've watched enough Gordon. He's not going to be as precision as a vet like AJ in RRing but he's so smooth, he can just explode on your too. He's big, he's fast, he can run underneath, he can out jump you. He's freaking great.

    I mean, Andre is a better RR than Calvin too. So are a lot of those guys. Doesn't make them better.

    Josh Gordon is incredible.


    There's no real way to quantify this but I virtually guarantee that Gordon and Green barring injury will outplay Andre. It won't even be close. Stats and eye test.

    I think everyone has BMarch too low on their lists. He should be 4-5 IMO ahead of

    Julio Jones
    Demaryius Thoma
    Larry Fitzgerald

    I love him but he benefits from

    A. Cutler whoring him
    B. Now with Jeffrey they have two #1s to cover.


    Thomas is a monster. He had was averaging 100 yards a game there towards the end with TEBOW.

    He's not much of a deep ball/jump ball threat like some others either.
