Today's Best Wide Receivers and Their Throwback Comparisons
From Bleacher Report. Check out the entire piece on this link.
Welcome to the second of a 12-part series where we look at the better performers at their respective positions in the NFL and whom they may compare to from the past.
We started with quarterbacks and now we will focus on two handfuls of the top wide receivers around the league. In no particular order, we will look at 10 current wideouts and who they may draw comparisons to in terms of some of the all-time greats.
The criteria are multi-faceted and one legend doesn’t fit all. We are talking style as much as anything because after all, the eye test is still the best pop quiz ever.
As suggested by my head coach, other factors such as speed, size and durability will be taken into account when making comparisons. We’ll even sprinkle a little history and philosophy in here as well.
So is it better to reminisce about receivers? We will give it our best try.
