In the weekly AFC East chat I just wrapped up, Scott from Northglenn, Colo., inspired me to put together this item.
In response to ESPN.com's positional power rankings (they debuted this week with wide receivers), Scott asked me to rank the division's best receivers.
So let's sort them out, shall we?
This is a snapshot of where I see them based on last season and heading into 2011. I'm including free agents until they sign elsewhere. I'm also going 12 deep on this list to include three receivers from each club.
Santonio Holmes, New York Jets
Brandon Marshall, Miami Dolphins
Wes Welker, New England Patriots
Braylon Edwards, New York Jets
Deion Branch, New England Patriots
Davone Bess, Miami Dolphins
Lee Evans, Buffalo Bills
Jerricho Cotchery, New York Jets
Roscoe Parrish, Buffalo Bills
Brian Hartline, Miami Dolphins
Brandon Tate, New England Patriots
ESPN.com will announce another position's power rankings each Tuesday. Expect to see my divisional breakdown on the blog that afternoon.
