Who are the top five receivers in the NFC North?
The NFC North has featured some great wide receivers in recent years, and it is still the home of some of the best pass catchers in the league. From Calvin Johnson to Jordy Nelson and Alshon Jeffery, in just the past five years alone, the NFC North has featured many star receivers.
But who is the very best receiver in the division entering the 2019 season?
Let’s begin our top five rankings for wide receivers in the NFC North.
5. Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions
Kenny Golladay is coming off an incredible second season in Detroit. Golladay more than doubled his receiving yards total from his rookie year, clearly becoming the Detroit Lions’ number one wide receiver in 2018. With 1,063 yards and five touchdowns last season, it became clear that the Lions have found a star at wide receiver.
The only reason he’s not higher on this list is because there is so much talent in the NFC North, and also because he’s only done it for one season. If Golladay puts together another 1,000-yard season, it’ll be hard not to place the Lions receiver higher in the rankings.
Golladay has overtaken Marvin Jones as the Detroit Lions’ top wide receiver, and that should continue into the 2019 season.
