If I had to think of the best 10 WRs...

First crew would be the 'black inkers':

Rice
Moss
TO
Alworth
Harrison
Largent
Carter
Bruce/Holt

Then there's the group who didn't lead in many categories, but were consistently dominant and who are jumbled together in terms of varying skill:

Irvin
Reed
Monk
Brown

Then there's Don Hutson, who was undeniably the best WR of his era, but whose era might not translate well into the modern.

Then there's Sterling Sharpe, who was well on his way to the HoF before injuries derailed an epic career in his prime.

Then there's the modern greats like Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson (maybe even Steve Smith or Andre Johnson) who will enter the discussion once they retire.

And THEN I'd get to the Hines Ward group; consistently good, occasionally great, best WRs on their team, but not quite as dominant as the other guys previously mentioned (Herman Moore, Rod Smith, Henry Ellard, etc.).
