It depends on what you look for in a receiver, if i was picking one for the Steelers i would pick Nelson, simply because we have plenty of quick, shifty players, but lack a big, strong outside guy.

If i was, say the Chargers, i would pick Welker. They have tons of size and strength, but no one to work underneath.

It all depends on what you look for. Its like picking between a ghetto booty and a pert teen ass...both have their advantages, just depends what tickles your pickle :)

This year's average is only being propped up by a couple of fluke plays against blown coverages. His average has plummeted since those beginning of the season flukes (as you would expect).

Or are you clearly saying that so many other teams have such fantastic offensive systems that they can afford not to make a crappy WR into the focal point of the best offense in the league over that 5 year span?

If teams had a player like Welker then they would be using that player like the Patriots use Welker. The spread type offense is the en vogue offense in the NFL at the minute and the Patriots have been the top team at using it since 2007.

It is idiotic to say that they wouldn't use a player the same, or similar, to how the Pats use Welker. And no, Calvin Johnson couldn't do what what Welker does. He simply does not have the short area quickness or route running ability.
Why weren't there 20 backs catching 87 balls each year like Derek Loville did in 1995?

Teams run different offensive systems. Throwing 110 underneath balls per year to the slot receiver isn't something that interests most teams. They'd rather actually make big plays in the passing game.

And the Patriots also have a quarterback who can run that kind of offense, which isn't automatic. The QB must have pocket presence and be able to make quick decisions and sight adjustments when operating out of the spread.

Nice analogy and I agree, there are different kinds of WR's. However, if you were starting a team, which WR would you choose? That's the criteria I used.

Jordy would be my vote today.

If it touches one of his fingers, he's catching that ball.

And that speed....

Amendola's pretty darn good too when not injured.....

#1- Jordy
#2- Welker
#3- Decker (very similar to Jordy)

What's Jimmy Graham?

Not really. He may be officially listed as a tight end, but he lines up as a wide receiver 75% of the time.
