In response to a segment about the Dallas Cowboys receiver, Dez Bryant, and whether or not he has ability to be focused and committed to be a number one receiver for the Cowboys, Jerry Rice decided to create a list of his top six receivers under the age of 26. Mr. Rice chose not to rank the six receivers, but instead, he decided to just create his list in alphabetic order. Appearing on the list, after only one season as an NFL wide receiver, was the Cincinnati Bengals star wide out, A.J. Green.

Last season, A.J. Green was a key part in the Bengals success, who had been consistent losers in recent history. In his first season with the team, Green hauled in 65 receptions for over 1,000 yards, and topped it off with 7 touchdowns. His success made the Bengals a serious offensive threat and gave rookie QB, Andy Dalton a safety blanket to throw a jump ball to when he needed it.

The list that Jerry Rice created also had the following receivers: Antonio Brown, Dez Bryant, Victor Cruz, Percy Harvin, and Julio Jones. If you asked us, we would rank A.J. Green as the best receiver from that group, and that would be now, and going forward.
