Wide receivers

1. Vikings

Justin Jefferson has quickly become one of the league’s top wide receivers in just his first two seasons. Adam Thielen’s production dropped slightly last season but he remains an excellent number two wide receiver.

K.J. Osborn is a solid number three option. He caught 50 passes for 655 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

2. Lions

The Lions don’t have a star WR1 like the Vikings, although first-round pick Jameson Williams could become that player.

Amon-Ra St. Brown impressed in his rookie year, and the Lions also brought in free-agent D.J. Chark this offseason.

A lot to like about this group.

3. Packers

The Packers drafted three wide receivers but it’s unclear how quickly any of them will be able to adjust to the NFL.

In the meantime, they are relying on veterans Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, and Randall Cobb to get the job done. That’s a real concern.

In any other division, the Packers’ receiving corps would rank last.

4. Bears

That title belongs to the Bears, however.

Darnell Mooney is coming off a 1,000-yard season, but that’s about all the Bears have at wide receiver.

The Bears traded for N’Keal Harry, who joins Byron Pringle, rookie Velus Jones, Tajae Sharpe, Equanimeous St. Brown, and Dante Pettis.

This could be the worst wide receiver corps in the NFL.
