Ranking Every WR Drafted in Top-10 Since 2010

Recommended Posts

Boy, this is a pretty sad list.  If not for 2011 this lit would be an indictment of ever drafting WR top 10

 

Ranking every WR drafted in the top 10 since 2010

When an NFL player gets drafted in the top ten, certain expectations come with the selection. Sometimes it works out, as in the case of Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, and sometimes it doesn’t, like when the Jaguars drafted Justin Blackmon.

For a receiver to validate being taken that early, the player needs to have shown the potential to become a team’s No. 1 option. As we can see, though, rarely does it work out that way.

Here’s our ranking of every WR drafted in the top ten over the past decade.
