Rank 'Em: Greatest wide receivers

Created: August 1, 2011, 1:41 PM

Where does Randy Moss rank?

Who are the best receivers in pro football history?

Randy Moss always came with question marks attached, like the concerns that helped him slide all the way to the 21st pick in the 1998 NFL draft. But as Moss reportedly steps away from the NFL after 13 seasons, perhaps the biggest question mark accompanying him relates to his place among the greatest receivers ever to play the game.

It may be a race for No. 2, given how much Jerry Rice dominates just about every category, but how do you size up football's best receivers?
