  2. Bowie
  3. Bowie
  4. Bowie
  5. Lipps

I think it's obvious that the answer is Tyler Grisham.

i never saw Stallworth, Swann, and Lipps play. So I''d go with:

1. Ward
2. Thigpen
3. Charles Johnson
4. Holmes
5. Burress

1) Swann - the most gifted. Not even close...
2) Ward - the most complete. Ever. Anywhere...
3) Stallworth - Consistent and reliable.
(Big drop to 4)
4) Lipps - As mentioned, never had a QB worth a spit throwing to him.
5) Buress - You may hate him, but he was damn good when he was here.

Hines Ward -all the records, and tons of clutch catches. Longevity.
John Stallworth - tough one between him and Swann but played longer and thrown to more than Lynn.
Lynn Swann - graceful, leaping ability, and great hands made for a hall of fame career but also a short one.
Louis Lipps - Remember his rookie year and how exciting he was paired with Stallworth? Great punt returner.
Santonio Holmes - tough one but I'll give it to Holmes for that Super Bowl drive and big plays along the way.

lipps was one of my favorites ever, he would have been a superstar if he played for a good qb.

hell, he made brister look decent in 1989-1990
