Julio Jones tied for the league lead in receptions last season (136), and he could be poised to surpass that in 2016. Dale Zanine/USA TODAY Sports

9. Julio Jones, WR, Falcons

Avg. rating: 93.29 | 2015 rank: 20

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Jones has the combination of size and speed that makes him nearly unstoppable. His 1,871 receiving yards last season, the second-highest total in NFL history, proves the point. Jones might become the first pass-catcher to reach 2,000 yards in a season. -- Vaughn McClure

It's nonsense that Ryan didn't make the list.

Course, no OLineman made it either, which lets you know that,even though it's a group of 50 "experts", they're all ignoring the trenches.

Maybe one or two OLinemen made it, they're still completely underrepresented in the top 100.

is this the 'show' where the ranks are voted on by the players, or is this the NFL network guys making their picks? Either way it doesn't mean much, one's a popularity contest, I mean they voted manning to the list the year he didn't even play, and the broadcasters know they have to appease the fans in the big markets more than worrying about being accurate....

This is ESPN trying to steal NFL.coms thunder-it is still a popularity contest, also has a recency bias.
