Everybody else.

If you were to start from scratch in an effort to build the protypical "perfect" WR, you would come up with a clone of Megatron.

He's 6'5" (nearly 6'6"), runs a 4.35 40, has a 42.5" vertical, and a 7' wingspan.

He's as big as some TE's & faster than most WR's.

He's strong enough to run people over or drag them behind him.

He's fast enough to beat basically anybody deep.

He's big enough to work the middle or be an absolute nightmare in the redzone.

He's got the hands, agility, and body control to make absurd circus catches.

If he and Stafford both stay healthy this year, he has a legitmate shot at 20 TD catches.


This.

Maybe, Hakeem Nicks and Miles Austin.

How can you mention scrappy and not name Steve Smith (Car)?

Brandon Marshall - kid is pure strength when it comes to recievers. They didn't name him "The Beast" for nothing!!!

How about David Boston? ;-7

(And all the kids go, "who?")

Dude was unguardable his ProBowl year. One man wrecking crew. I think he (and TO) opened the door for some of these other huge WRs that probably would have been considered too big for the position prior to their success.

Like Ward, he's at the end of the road, but being a Packer fan I have to nominate Donald Driver. A nobody out of Alcorn State (I think), wasn't even supposed to make the team and they just couldn't get rid of him. He just became the Packers all-time leader in receptions and yards. And almost all over the middle...dude is humble as they come but tough as nails and a throwback Packer.

I saw a twitter discussion along these lines, and someone was saying Dez Bryant compared favorably to Calvin Johnson, as a physical receiver.

The response I read was "Dez Bryant would have to wear Calvin Johnson as an Exoskeleton."

And that was worth sharing. :)
