         <td>

T.J. Houshmandzadeh

         </td>
         <td>

The top wide receiver on the market. More of a possession receiver than a playmaker. Only has size career catches of 40 or more yards. Houshmandzadeh will catch a ton of passes and move the chains.

         </td>

Laveranues Coles

         </td>
         <td>

Coles is a steady, productive receiver. Has five or more touchdown catches in all but two seasons. No longer has top speed, but he is a skilled veteran.

Nate Washington

         </td>
         <td>

Young player on the rise. Had a career high 40 catches this year. Excellent downfield threat.

Devery Henderson

         </td>
         <td>

Averages more than 20 yards per catch for his career. Career high in receptions is only 32, though. Not a workhorse receiver, but he is a big-play specialist.

         </td>

         </td>
         <td>

Brandon Jones

         </td>
         <td>

Young player with size and some ability. Had a career-best 41 catches this year. Not the big name like Marvin Harrison, Joey Galloway, or Amani Toomer, but Jones is an ascending player.
