It's a draw. TB and Carolina each have the 1-2. Atlanta has Jones and NO has Cooks, Snead, Thomas, and Fleener. Cooks is not as big as the other three but faster. Fleener is not as physical as the other two(Olsen, ASJ) but probably as well faster.

Re: "Which NFC South team has the best receivers and tight ends?"

I'm not sure I would put us #1 until we actually see Thomas and Fleener be productive. Right now it's just kind of speculation that they'll be solid contributors. Carolina edges us out for the time being because Benjamin, Funchess, Ginn and Olsen have all been productive for the Panthers. Remember, before the 2014 season there were people who said we had the best safety tandem in the NFL with Byrd and Vacarro... Then the actual season started.

Re: "Which NFC South team has the best receivers and tight ends?"

Thomas has the skills to be a number one wide receiver.........so does Cooks. We have two number one possibilities. Snead is a fine replacement for my boy Lance Moore and is an excellent number two. Fleener is the prototypical TE who will benefit as Drew's dump off valve and is a mismatch at all levels of the defense. That's pretty scary if you think about it.

That leaves Coleman who saw his snaps reduced after the first few games because of poor production. He worked his way back into the line up due to an aging and underperforming Colston along with injuries to the WR's later in the season and performed well enough. It was his first full year in the NFL off the practice squad and he improved enough to keep on the final 53. His PS receiving team mate didn't make it and was cut. He should make the roster but he could become expendable if another UDFA steps up. This year I'm keeping an eye on RJ Harris. Coach loves deep speed.
