Post The AFC North Position by Position Breakdown: Receivers

(NOTE: Tight ends and Wide receivers are included)

The second straight tough decision, but we have a new #1 team

Position: Receivers

1: Cleveland Browns
This is a truly scary offense the Browns have, and the receiving corps might be the most fearsome part of it. Braylon Edwards is a superstar WR, with everything a receiver could wish for: Speed, hands, size, leaping ability. Braylon should be burning DB's for a long time. Opposite him, Donte' Stallworth is a game breaker with the speed to run by many a defender. Look for big numbers out of him as well. Joe Jurevicius, when healthy, is a dependable slot receiver, and Josh Cribbs is the best return man not named Devin Hester. At Tight end, Kellen Winslow is arguably the best receiving tight end in the NFL, and is a match-up nightmare for defenses. The Browns offense is loaded, and could be a top 5 unit this season.

2: Pittsburgh Steelers
A close second, Pittsburgh is not lacking quality receivers. Hines Ward is dependable, if not flashy, receiver who is a excellent downfield blocker. However, age could be a concern in the next couple of years. Santonio Homes is a star waiting to happen, a speedster with the hands to make the tough catches. Rookie Limas Sweed is a big target, and should do nicely in the slot. At tight end, Heath Miller is a all around guy who can block and catch, and he does them both well.

3: Cincinnati Bengals
Off the field antics and endzone shenanigans aside, Chad Johnson is a top 5 receiver in the league today. He can do it all, and has produced for years in the Bengals high powered offense. TJ Houshmandzadeh is a underrated talent, who can also do it all. A late round steal, him and ocho cinco are perhaps the best 1-2 in the league. Chris Henry has shown talent at times, for getting in trouble as much as his pass catching skills. When he does play, he gives yet another weapon for Carson Palmer. At tight end, Ben Utect is a reliable guy who has average ability going out for a pass.

4: Baltimore Ravens
Notice a theme with the Ravens offense? Derrick Mason is still a decent receiver, but has never really been that special. That being said, he can still get open and make the catch. Mark Clayton his still not proved to be worth the first round pick he was selected with, and Demetrius Williams is a below average slot man. At tight end, the Stormin Mormon Toad Heap is a excellent pass catcher, and is also a decent blocker.

Next up: Offensive Line

Add this "1st" rated recieivng group to a 4th rated QB and 3rd rated Running Game...and what do you get?.....8-8.

Hmmm...this is tough. The top 3 teams all have really good WR's. The Browns DON'T get the top spot right this minute because they have no #3 WR until Jurevicius comes back, so I slide them to 3 and move the Steelers and Bungals up to 1 and 2. But with a full compliment of WR's they make a good case.

Are CJ and TJ better than Santo and Holmes? Maybe...but I'd rather have the latter on my team for myriad reasons. CJ is too much of a distraction, (and I think Santo will outperform him this year) and Ward is a better all-around player and leader than TJ.

Unfortunately, despite having good receivers, they don't have anyone to throw them the ball, so the team will probably continue to suck.
I took the liberty of fixing that for you...

i think 9-5 is doing a pretty good job with his rankings and has been pretty unbiassed. however there is a major flaw with this rankings. already been said about joe j. not being able to go, but how can one leave out one of the statistically most productive #3 wr in the league the past 2-3 seasons? -nate washington.

Since we're including TE's, Kellen Winslow definitely gives Cleveland a boost. But yeah, Joe J looks like he's on his last legs and is far from healthy at this point. Donte Stallworth is speedy and talented but I think his hype has outweighed his production just a tad so far. And I'm not sure how a guy who's only had 14 receptions in 3 seasons (Josh Cribbs) really factors into the equation.

because most people don't know him or think he sucks

seriously , many thought baker would take his spot. and many people outside steelers fans seem to think sweed is the # 3.

whatever, stay cool under the radar nate. they won't see you till you're getting six in their endzones

good breakdown 9-5

Derek Anderson throws for nearly 3800 yards, 28 touchdowns, plus 3 more on the run last year and you say that.

sure thing.
