It is time for us to move to one of the glamour positions as we choose our Big Blue View Preseason All-NFC East Team. Today, we turn our attention to wide receiver.
I know you can only vote for one guy, but I will take the top two overall vote-getters. The age of each nominee is in parenthesis.
Nicks has 202 catches in three NFL seasons. The only question with him is how healthy he will be at the beginning of the season after breaking his foot during preseason workouts.
Victor Cruz, Giants (25) -- 2011 stats: 82 catches, 1,536 yards (18.7 yards per catch), 9 touchdowns.
Can Cruz keep the magic he found in 2011?
Hate on the Eagles all you want, but you have to be able to recognize that Maclin is a tremendous player.
DeSean Jackson, Eagles (25) -- 2011 stats: 58 catches, 961 yards (16.6 yards per catch), 4 touchdowns.
Maybe not as consistently productive as some of the guys listed above, but every bit as dangerous.
Maybe Bryant is a bit of a knucklehead, but he is incredibly talented. How good can he be if he ever actually reaches his potential? Really, really good.
Best days are behind Moss, who has 639 career catches in 11 seasons.
