In a recent article over at CBS Sports, NFL analyst Jared Dubin took to the task of ranking all eight of the NFL’s divisions by the talent of wide receivers. In what may not be that surprising of an outcome to all of you, the NFC West was named the top division with their litany of top-tier wideouts spread throughout the four teams.

Here’s what Dubin had to say about the division and their top ranking:

“Man, this group is really damn good. Samuel and Aiyuk are absolute YAC monsters. Hopkins is one of the most unique physical forces in the league. Woods and Kupp are extremely underrated players, guys who can do anything you ask of them on the field. Metcalf might be the next Calvin Johnson. Lockett makes the impossible seem possible due to his combination of speed and chemistry with Russell Wilson. Even supporting guys like Sanu, Jalen Hurd, Kirk, Green, and Van Jefferson bring something to the table. They’re not stars, but they’re not guys who can’t be on the field.”

Does anyone disagree with this ranking or will you gladly accept that the Rams and their plethora of all-around talent help make this division the best in the NFL? Let us know in the comments below.
