Ranking every team's WRs: Saints 15th

15th

Michael Thomas is the new No. 1 wide receiver in pass-happy New Orleans. (Getty) Outside: Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr.
Slot: Willie Snead
Depth: Brandon Coleman, Tommylee Lewis
Thomas is one of two rookies ever to post at least 90 catches for at least 1,100 yards and at least nine touchdowns. The other? Odell Beckham Jr.


Think we are better than 15th but that is based of of extreme bias and assuming MT and Snead improve which they will.

Before I looked at it I thought we were very comparable to the Redskins and they are at 18. Pryor is no joke and Crowder is very good, more speed and agility than Snead. After that a big drop just like us.

Re: Ranking every team's WRs: Saints 15th

Trading Cooks has justifiably knocked the Saints to the middle of the pack. Since the Saints upgraded the running game I don't see the WR downgrade being much of an issue. I think having guys who can catch passes from the RB position will open a lot of stuff for these guys.

Re: Ranking every team's WRs: Saints 15th

Saints receiving corps have arguably never been rated much higher. We haven't needed high ranking receivers because Brees has made no names look like pro bowlers. With his age though it wouldn't hurt to try and find an all star receiver in FA next year if someone is there and we can to start along side Thomas.

Lampman
Fuller
Lewis

I think these guys will battle it out for WR spot #5.

Re: Ranking every team's WRs: Saints 15th

Is there any ranking more useless than a group WR ranking? Plug Brees into any of the 32 WR groups and they're instantly top 10.

There are only a handful of WRs head and shoulders above the rest (and they're still handcuffed to how good their QB is). And I think we have one in Mr. Thomas.

It's like telling me you have the world's fastest computer, but it's running Windows 95. We should be higher.
