Power Rankings: Oakland Raiders have a top-25 receiving corps in the NFL


The NFL is becoming more and more of a passing league; statistics bear this theory out, as numbers continue to rise for quarterbacks and receivers, while dropping for running backs. Thus, it’s becoming increasingly important to have skill position players who can excel in this brand of football.

Obviously, the quarterback is the most vital person on the roster. Without one, a team has no chance, which is why even marginal signal callers are getting $100 million contracts.

But the guys catching the football are also important. The right group of receivers – wideouts and tight ends – can make a QB’s job a whole lot easier by making tough catches, producing yards after the ball is in their hands and getting open.

With that notion in mind, the editors at cover32 gathered to assemble this week’s Power Rankings, rating each NFL team’s receiving corps from one to 32. To see the results, click here.

    One only has to look at the title of the article and calculate how many teams are in the NFL to realize that Yardbarker has struck another empty vein. What a worthless article. The Raiders have the 25th ranked receiver corps, out of 32 teams. That says it all. Yardbarker and FOX strike again, with worthless tripe, exemplifying, again, the total dysfunction of social media journalism. As we can all see, the author was smart enough not to identify himself, but ignorant enough to write this article. Way to go, moron!
