Default Where do they all stack up now? (WR)

Calvin Johnson
Brandon Marshall
Demaryius Thomas
Dez Bryant
Julio Jones
A.J. Green
Antonio Brown

Give each guy a '90s-'00s WR comparison that you feel each player resembles the most.
They do not have to be identical.

Calvin Johnson - There has never been someone with a similar combination of size, speed.

AJ Green - Randy Moss. Not quite as fast but lanky receiver with great leaping ability and hands.

Julio Jones - Terrell Owens. Same body type. Both great after the catch and going across the middle of the field.

Jordy Nelson - Michael Irvin. Not the biggest receiver. Not the fastest receiver. Uses speed well and has a knack for finding the weakness in the defense.

Demaryius Thomas - Chris Chambers. Thomas is a little bigger, Chambers is a little faster. Something about the way Thomas looks in motion, especially on slants, reminds me of Chambers.

Dez Bryant - Andre Johnson. Big, strong receivers who do not have elite top-end speed but still have the ability to make big plays.

Antonio Brown - Torry Holt. Ridiculous quickness and great in space. Great hands and great route-running.

1. Calvin Johnson - Randy Moss
Size, speed, and ball skills makes him uncoverable at times ala' Moss.

2. Demaryius Thomas - Vincent Jackson
Just try to imagine V.Jack starting his career with Manning.

3. Josh Gordon - Calvin Johnson
No one else makes it look as easy as Calvin.

4. Antonio Brown - Derrick Mason
Brown is really a faster all around Mason.

5. A.J. Green - Plaxico Burress
A.J. can almost catch anything and is adept at making the clutch catch. Not as big and physical as Plax but similar in how they make their QB look better.

6. Dez Bryant - Anquan Boldin
Obviously.

7. Jordy Nelson - Javon Walker
Jordy's a consistent Javon Walker.

8. Brandon Marshall - Rod Smith
I think Marshall's first nick name was baby T.O. but since he's lost his speed he's similar to Smith. Monster yac guy and ultra consistent.

9. Julio Jones - Andre Johnson
10. Ty Hilton - Peerless Price
11. Randall Cobb - Donald Driver
12. Jeremy Maclin - Nate Burleson

11. Randall Cobb - Donald Driver
All you did was compare current Packers WRs to Packers WRs 10 years ago.

I guess I can kind of see Nelson to the 2003 version of Javon Walker.

Sidenote: ****, what a shame that injury was. Walker was the perfect receiver for Favre. They could have been so good together. And what he went through in Denver too. He had a pretty good first year as a Bronco even. He might have been a top WR in the NFL had his career not been derailed like that.

But Cobb to Driver is a poor comparison. I think I get what you were going for, but they are actually two very different receivers.

Calvin Johnson reminds me of Herman Moore when he was a dominant WR for the Lions in the 1990s.

Similar size and a physical mismatch problem for most DBs.

I don't think even Megatron has been as good for a four year stretch as Moore was from '94 to '97.

People always sleep on this dude. He was damn good when healthy.
