We've selected the best of the best in each category for every position and rank the top five in each. Does your team need a deep threat at the wide receiver spot? A hands guy? How about a superior athlete? You will want to land one of these guys.
Crabtree's take: I love Brice Butler's ability to go get the football. He doesn't let it come to him, he attacks the ball. And some of the catches he makes on film are amazing. Christopher Owusu is another one that falls into the overlooked category. He catches everything.
Farrell's take: Brice Butler is one of the few players in any category who was a unanimous selection. He makes circus catches and this top five is as good as any in recent years at catching the ball.
Shurburtt's take: The receivers in this group catch everything that's thrown their way. Butler also is an excellent route runner.
Crabtree's take: DeVier Posey is amazing to watch with the ball in his hands. He turns on his track speed and is gone in the blink of an eye. A.J. Green is also great, too. He's for sure something special.
Farrell's take: Green has that wiggle needed to be a versatile player who can stretch the field as well as open things up underneath. Chris Tolliver isn't far behind.
Shurburtt's take: These guys turn into running back-types after making the catch. I really like the way Jones can wiggle his way out of tight situations.
Crabtree's take: Another solid group headlined by the nation's best receivers – Jones and Green. They both not only are great receivers, they're excellent athletes. Jeff Fuller is also an excellent fit in this category.
Farrell's take: Jones is clearly the most athletic wideout in the country this year out of a strong group.
Shurburtt's take: When you watch the players in this group, you are in awe of the things they naturally do on the football field.
