Good call. I think it's very, very hard in this day and age to be a "Smurf receiver" (as they were called on ESPN yesterday) and be the top threat. Ward pulls it off in Pittsburgh, but they are still a run-first team. His top end is around 1100 yards and 8 TD's, of course that's also pretty near his low end. The top wideouts are all taller physical guys that can make all sorts of catches. They are the ones that can put up the 1200-1400 yard seasons with double digit TD's.
The shorter guys are mostly burners that basically go deep or make short, sharp cuts to make a living. That's why they are better suited as #2's...they try the long bombs every so often and the possession catches when the top guy is being hounded.
I wouldn't trust the Redskins pass offense, mainly because of Ramsey. Coles did decently last year, but he didn't rack up many TD's. Portis is the focus there, so Moss is probably a decent pick for a #3.
We still have yet to see how Smith will do as the top man in Carolina...but he's another in the Ward/Coles/Moss mold.
