14. Brandon Marshall
Denver Broncos
Marshall is one of the best young receivers in the NFL. He is a big, physical receiver (6-4, 230) who places a lot of pressure on a secondary. He has the strength to separate off the line of scrimmage and the speed to attack all levels. He has strong, soft hands and is one of the best in the NFL after the catch. How long it takes Marshall to recover from an injury to his right arm remains to be seen.

18. Hines Ward
Pittsburgh Steelers
Ward makes tough catches in traffic and has been a very reliable receiver for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. He led the team in receptions last season despite missing three games. He has sure hands, an excellent feel for setting up defensive backs and runs reliable, crisp routes. His speed isn't exceptional, but he has shown the ability to make big plays deep downfield. He is one of the toughest receivers in the NFL and if there were a Hall of Fame for blocking wide receivers, Ward would be the first one in.

19. Santonio Holmes
Pittsburgh Steelers
Holmes is a talented, young receiver who continues to improve in offensive coordinator Bruce Arians' system. He is loaded with big-play ability (league-best 18.1 yards per catch last season) and could turn into a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver. Holmes' numbers have gone up in each of his two seasons in the league -- he had 49 catches for 824 yards in his rookie year and 52 catches for 942 yards last season despite missing three games with an injury.

21. Dwayne Bowe
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs had one of the worst offenses in the NFL last season. However, Bowe has all the makings of a premier No. 1 receiver. He caught 70 passes for 995 yards, best among all rookie receivers. He is a prototype receiver with savvy, body control and great hands.

22. Donald Driver
Green Bay Packers
Driver is fearless going across the middle and had a great relationship with QB Brett Favre. However, much like Greg Jennings, Driver must build a new relationship with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Driver has tremendous change-of-direction skills and leaping ability.

25. Deion Branch
Seattle Seahawks
A talented player, Branch has struggled with durability issues. He suffered an ACL injury in the divisional playoff game against the Packers and could miss the start of the 2008 season. However, when healthy, he has the ability to make explosive plays on all levels in the passing game. He has excellent speed and runs fluid routes. He is especially dangerous after the catch.

26. Roddy White
Atlanta Falcons
White had a breakout season in 2007. He displayed strong run-after-catch ability, breakaway speed and big-play potential. He tracks the deep ball well and has the extra gear to separate from defenders downfield. His speed makes him very dangerous after the catch. He has the ability to become the No. 1 receiver in new offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey's system.




Wow. Talk about underrated.

Brandon Marshall had a great year. But it was a breakout year just like Roddy White. He had 19 more catches, 123 more yards, and one more touchdown. But like Roddy White he had done nothing prior to this year. Unlike Roddy White he did not have Falcons quarterbacks Joey Harrington, Byron Leftwich, and Chris Redman at quarterback. Instead he had Jay Cutler. But somehow he is twelve spots ahead of Roddy White.

Hines Ward has not had as many yards in a season as Roddy White did this year since 2002. This year he was barely over 700 yards receiving, although he had one more touchdown than Roddy White, although he had Ben Roethlisburger and not the prior mentioned trio of Falcons quarterbacks.

Santonio Holmes was another breakout player. Except he had 32 less catches, although in three less games. A good number of touchdowns, but White's season was better as a whole and then you add in the quarterback difference. Breakout player with not as good as a breakout.

Dwayne Bowe. Same thing. Breakout player who did not come close to the season Roddy White had. Bad QB situation helps his case, though.

Donald Driver had one less catch, 155 less receiving yards, and four less touchdowns than Roddy White, and he also had a much, much better quarterback than Roddy White had to deal with. A better case can be made because of his very good 2006 season, though.

Deion Branch is so overrated. He has played 16 games only once in his six year career, has never had even 1,000 receiving yards in a single season (998 is his career high), never more than 80 catches in a season (78 is season high), never more than five touchdowns in a season, and has had played with very good quarterbacks all throughout his career with Tom Brady in New England and Matt Hasselbeck in Seattle. Roddy White in his third season, his breakout year, surpassed Branch's career high in the three main catagories for wide receivers: receiving yards, receptions, and receiving touchdowns. And the 'big play receiver' Deion Branch has never had an average of 15 yards per reception in any season of his career while Roddy White has done it in all three of his seasons. Then add in the difference in quarterback play between Tom Brady and Matt Hasselbeck in comparison to Michael Vick, Joey Harrington, Chris Redman, and Byron Leftwich?

Okay, had to let everyone know how underrated Roddy White is.

I agree. Roddy White didnt get credit, but I think your giving the writer of this article to much credit. I like how he said White "has the ability" as if last year didnt allready seal him being the #1 starter. There are probably 6-10 other NFL teams he would be the #1 on aswell.

Im still wondering why Deion Branch got that credit? Maybe the writer was a Louisville fan growing up?

Be that as it may, Berrian is still ranked far closer to 20th than most of you were giving him credit for.

And this is from ESPN, who wouldn't go out on a limb if there was a trampoline underneath. They always have the most predictable and neutral answers possible.

Reggie at 5 and Marvin at 13? Can't complain about that, especially after Marvin's injury.

He'll never be up there? He certainly has the talent to. The only thing stopping him would be the offense around him.

Well it is the top 64 wide receivers which really should include at least one wide receiver from just about every team. So being on the list is not all that impressive.

Yeah Roddy White is good, but I wouldnt put him up there with Marshall. Your reasoning was Marshall having Cutler throwing him the ball. But it's not like there was a lot of other offense there. Injured offensive line, unstable running game, and a still young quarterback. He may be much better then the falcons commitee of QBs, but he is still young and learning the offense. It's not like the Broncos had some amazing offense that Marshall benefitted from. He was our recieving game.

But Brandon Marshall still had an amazing year, and barring anymore TV accidents, should have an amazing 08.

Well Isaac Bruce is on there becuase he was one of the best receivers in the league at one point and is probably a Hall of Famer. As for Johnson, he never really got his chance to be a starter being behind Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. He definately has the potential to be a good receiver in this league. I dont know if he can show that in San Fran or not. It all depends on Alex Smith...

Cotchery has 1,100 yards with bad QBs. They never threw to him in the end zone, thats why he only has 2 TDs. Saying Cotchery is just a solid #2 is BS. He is a stud player. And Coles is still a flat out good player, Hynes Ward isn't that good anymore, and he has a great QB throwing to him. Seriously there are guys up there that don't belong and are overrated. Coles and Cotchery are better then people think, especially Cotchery, if he had Brady throwing to him, he would have 1,400 yards.

That's a terrible list, AJ is way overrated. He's been productive when healthy but he's always been injured. He's not better than Boldin yet whose also struggled with injuries and bad QB play but put up way better numbers at the same time. Edwards is overrated as well, he was outstanding this year and has shown flashes but its one year, you need to do it consistently to be number 6. Especially over Chad Johnson and Boldin. Colston has been a great reciever for 2 years, Marshall has been for 1 with flashes in another, Colston wins that one. Hines Ward is way underrated, he's an 1000 yard reciever most every year in a run oriented offense and is the best blocker in the league. Deion Branch has never been that good outside of a great super bowl, he's certainly not better than Roddy White or Santana Moss.

They put way too much weight on physical tools (than dont always produce) and quality of team rather than skills.

Im sorry, i dont get how Hines Ward is ranked so high on this list.
Yeah, hes tough and all, but he isnt the only tough WR. Plus there are guys just as tough who are more productive.

Funny how James Jones can be considered the 64th best receiver in the NFL a year after being the 204th (only 3 spots behind fellow wideout Legedu Naanee!) rated prospect among all rookies.

Things like that are why Ted Thompson is the executive of the year.
