Wide Receivers/Tight Ends
1. Houston Texans
-The Texans have some nice talent around Nuk Hopkins that would put them in contention with either of the bottom two teams on the list, but Hopkins by himself is already far and away the best receiver in the AFC South.
2. Tennessee Titans
-In terms of a starting four (three wide receivers and one tight end) the Titans have the most well balanced group in the division. However, no one on the roster has been as good as Hopkins. The closest would be Delanie Walker, but even then a Pro Bowl TE isn’t quite as scary as an All Pro WR.
Around Walker, the Titans trio of Corey Davis, A.J. Brown and Adam Humphries are the prototype for what you want in the NFL. A big, fast, physical WR1 in Davis, a technical route runner with great YAC potential in Brown and the ideal slot receiver in Humphries.
It isn’t hard to consider them at top-10 group going into the season and if Brown pans out the way Titans fans hope, the top-5 or 6 isn’t insane.
3. Indianapolis Colts
-The big argument here is T.Y. Hilton and Eric Ebron. I think we all know how Ebron’s career was with Andrew Luck and the last time Hilton was without Luck his production was down to 67% of what it was the year before. If that trend happens again then Hilton is looking at an 850 yard season despite being in a pass heavy offense….ok then…
4. Jacksonville Jaguars
