Best NFL Wide Receivers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Jimmy Smith

My Man, could flat out get it done. Carried Jacksonville for many years. Should be in Hall of Fame within the next couple years. In the top 10 in all major stats for withe outs.

Way under rated. Should at the least be in the top ten. Crazy hands. Are you serious?

42Drew Pearson

Deep threat early in his career and could always make the tough catch in the middle. The original Cowboy #88!

He does not have the numbers the newer guys have, but he is prototype for the modern day clutch receivers.

43Plaxico Burress

he is a monster. Leading his team to the superbowl this year

44Anquan Boldin

They are going to the Super Bowl! Yes he's the only reason they are there. Without him the team would stink awfully. The ravens should be glad that they had a chance to meet this cool dude!

One of the Toughest WR the the NFL has ever seen. While not the gratest athlete to ever play the game, he would out muscle a CB rather than out run one. He has sure, strong hands, some of the best in the NFL. While he is not as great as the guys in the top ten, this guy deserves higher than 57

In their prime as WR'S I would want Andre on my team him and Fred B. From Oakland.

46Donald Driver

One of the toughest to play the position. Only missed one game in his career to injury. At his age and still putting up big numbers. Right up there with Hines Ward in toughness and ability.

Donald Driver has some of the best hands in football history Randy Moss really needs to learn how to respect the game of football, seriously. T.O. needs to know he's not the best ever. Shut your traps moss and owens.

Donald Driver can make big plays and comes back game after game with some of the best moves I've seen, nobody can get close to what this guys done for the green bay packers.

He should be at the top of the list have you seen him play

47John Jefferson

John was a class act, team player and REALLY was one of the greatest WR of all time. Not like these press/camera grabbing fools of today. - paulbrown1

Possibly the best pair of hands to ever play the game. Every catch was highlight material

Every catch was a world-class catch.

Best of the best

48Don Maynard

One of the few listed here in the Hall Of Fame...

Nickname was Sunshine, no one ever ran him down for a tackle

His book... "You can't catch Sunshine" can be purchased online.

Joe Namath wrote the three page intro to the book..

Caught 3 TDs in three Super Bowl victories with the Raiders, on top of that he has better numbers than Lynn Swann so why isn't he in the Hall of Fame again? - alexmendoza

50Marquis Colston

Most underrated receiver of all time. The guy is essesntially famous for being underrated but only gets love from saints fans and sports enthusiasts. In one of the most diva positions in all of sports he is a quiet, humble guy who year in and year out produces.

Marquis colston is won of the all time leading receivers in yards at about 9000 making the top 20 list. he should be in the top 10.

51Odell Beckham Jr.Odell Beckham Jr. is a NFL wide receiver, playing for the New York Giants. He is most-known for making an incredible one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys.

He is an incredible rookie and just for one season he showed that he could be a big threat. Already top 100

He's the rookie of the year, and also the three finger catch you have to get him5 higher he's for sure in the top 3

Only wide receiver that can guarantee a 1 handed catch every time

Has better rookie stats than jerry rice and randy moss.

53Miles Austin

He should not be even mentioned on this list

Amazing, absolutely amazing, his concistancy is phenominal and his talent to make something out of nothing, making Tony Romo look even better.

54Charley Taylor

One of the greatest ever in open space and an extremely talented rout runner, one of the best if not the best of his era

Amazing player and teammate. Understood the game and how to run a route to make every yard count. I grew up watching him every week play hard make nearly every catch. He was why I played football.
Thank you Charlie Taylor..

56Wes Chandler

Remember him? One of most underrated receivers in N.F.L history. When John Jefferson left for Green Bay in free agency, the chargers didn't miss a beat. He was just as good as Jefferson, if not better. That, s why I'm surprised that Jefferson is on the list, and not Chandler.


He helped the Chargers to become one of the most exciting passing teams in pro football history. When the football was in the air, was his. He was poetry in motion.

Best Ever. Its not close. Deep or keep the chains moving in traffic guy, hands like glue. Whole package.

If you did not vote him higher, then you did not watch him play.

57Antonio BrownAntonio Brown is an American football wide receiver and punt returner for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

Enjoying watching history in the making!

This guy deserves a higher spot! - htoutlaws2012

Over close to 5,000 yards in just 3 seasons? Next Jerry Rice.

He should be higher then that bum Dez Bryant

59Troy Brown

I would put Troy Brown in the top 10, yes, the top 10. He never dropped the ball, and made every clutch play imaginable. Easily the most underrated player in NFL history. If I started a team, I would take Tom Brady first and Troy Brown second. His punt returning, defensive skills, and leadership make him one the NFL's greatest.

Huge part of all patriots championships

Has been around for a while and is one of the greatest pats ever and nfl wideout
