A Positive Rarity - Edging Out Most Teams With Pure Wide-Receiver Talent

14

Since 2001, around twelve percent of first round picks have been wide-receivers (roughly 43/350). The Chiefs have taken two in the last five drafts. Below you will find all thirty-one first round wide-receivers chosen since 2004. An astonishing seventy-five percent (or 23) of which are good, great, or unstoppable. 1st Round Wide-Receivers Since 2004 AJ Green - Great Julio Jones - Great Jon Baldwin - Good Demaryius Thomas - Good Dez Bryant - Great Darrius Heyward-Bey - Good Michael Crabtree - Good Jeremy Maclin - Good Percy Harcin - Great Hakeem Nicks - Great Kenny Britt - Good Calvin Johnson - Unstoppable Tedd Ginn - Meh Dwayne Bowe - Great Robert Meachum - Good Craig Davis - Who? Anthony Gonzalez - Meh Santonio Holmes - Great Braylon Edwards - Good Troy Williamson - Who? Mike Wiliams - Good Matt Jones - Good Mark Clayton - Good Roddy White - Great Larry Fitzgerald - Unstoppable Roy Williams - Good Reggie Williams - Who? Lee Evans - Good Michael Clayton - Meh Michael Jenkins - Good Reshaun Woods - Who? Can you find or think of other teams that currently have two 1st round wide-outs? Immediately the Falcons come to mind with Julio and Roddy. And don't dare forget the scariest duo since clown and mime in Crabtree and Ginn. Pairing first round wide-receiver talent seems to be rarer than an occurrence finding a triumphant franchise quarterback. I challenge you with this: Has there really been more perennial pro-bowl quarterbacks over the last decade than 1st round picked wide-receiver doublings? This is only one positive rarity that the Chiefs own. Whoever our QBOTF ends up being, he will surely have elite talent to count on.
