Roddy White joined NFL Network on the set of “The Top 100 Players: Reaction Show” Sunday, giving his take on the top receivers in the game and where he felt he stood. At No. 24 on the list of the best players in the league — voted on by the players themselves — White is ranked third among wide receivers.
Logic would dictate that Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson are the top two wideouts, but perhaps White belongs in that discussion. Matt Ryan’s top target has caught at least 80 passes four seasons in a row, including a whopping 115 in 2010. But a big part of White’s game is quality, as he hasn’t just racked up a lot of receptions. The Falcons’ first option in the passing game has also piled on the yards over the last few seasons.
Below are the leaders in receiving yards over the last three seasons. It seems White is sitting pretty.
