    01 has some pretty big names, but 96 is collectively solid

        How pray tell does '01 have better quality? Right now I don't think any of the '01 Receivers are slated to be Hall of Fame-rs. Where as Harrison is, Owens on numbers alone is. The '01 class also has several busts that are unmentioned. Four of the six first round WRs turned out to be busts in '01. The worst '96 produced was Eddie Kennison, who has still be a solid starter most of the time.

            I'd have to go with '96 but the biggest steal was Houshmanzadeh in the 7th round of that draft in 01

              '96 class both in terms of quality and quantity.

              Acctually the '01 class turned out several busts as well as later round steals.

              Check out the first 10 WRs taken in 2001 class (1-6 in the 1st round):

              1. David Terrell - bust
              2. Koren Robinson - bust
              3. Rod Gardner - bust
              4. Santana Moss - pretty good
              5. Freddie Mitchell - bust
              6. Reggie Wayne - very good
              7. Quincy Morgan - bust
              8. Chad Johnson - great
              9. Robert Ferguson - decent
              10. Chris Chambers - pretty good

              All of these guys were taken in the first 2 rounds, and 5 of them are busts.

                      This 07 WR class should be pretty good. Unlikely it will touch the 96 class though.

                        1996:
                        Keyshawn Johnson - Still produces at a very high level
                        Terry Glenn - Never more than a number two
                        Eddie Kennison - Solid, but never an elite receiver imo
                        Marvin Harrison - Top 3 or 4 of all time and in 04 a receiver most mentioned by DBs as the hardest to cover
                        Eric Moulds - See Kennison
                        Amani Toomer - Good number two, nothing more.
                        Mushin Muhhamed - Solid and at time spectacular, somewhat inconsistent at times
                        Bobby Engram - Never healthy
                        Terrel Owens - Amazingly good, when he shuts up and concentrates
                        Joe Horn - See above


                        2001:
                        Santana Moss - Still isn't utilised in the right way, could be an amazing talent, still finding himself
                        Reggie Wayne - Number two to one of the best of all time, probably beginning to become one of the league's best
                        Chad Johnson - Top 3 currently in the league
                        Chris Chambers - Inconsistent
                        Steve Smith - Top 3 currently in the league
                        T.J. Houshmandzadeh - Will end up as the primary target somewhere soon. Great number two receiver.

                        I think 2001, you've got Steve Smith who's only one of three guys ever to win the triple crown and has been to three probowls, Chad Johnson who's been amazing his entire career and continues to school defensive backs even when injured, Reggie Wayne who's helped manning get to the amazing heights he has.

                        2001 might not have more probowlers than 1996, but the calibre of the players who are probowlers is much higher than that of their 1996 counterparts.

                          That is absolutely a wrong way to look at it in my opinion. Especially when that list disregards all the busts the '01 class had, while including the mediocre receivers from the '96 class. Top to bottom, with every receiver in the class considered, the '96 class trumps the '01 class easily.
                          • David Terrell
                          • Koren Robinson
                          • Rod Gardner
                          • Freddie Mitchell

                          The '96 class had no 'busts' in the first round like '01 had. Top to bottom, it was deeper. '96 has two Hall of Fame caliber talents, whereas the '01 does not.

                              Maybe Wait till the 96 Class finally retires and you gotta figure... the 01 class only had 5 years vs. the 10 years.

                                No, to you 01 is better because Steve Smith was in it.

                                That's all you needed to say, dude. We know how you really feel.
