With the shift towards pass-heavy offenses in the National Football League, the value of an elite wide receiver is currently at an all time high.

Wide receiver is still technically a position that is dependent on quarterback play, but there are still a handful of players that are fully capable of changing games regardless of who is throwing them the ball. With all due respect to Atlanta Falcons star Julio Jones and Tampa Bay Buccaneers All-Pro Mike Evans, Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants and Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers are the two most explosive wideouts in the NFL today.

Neither Beckham, 5-foot-11 and 198 pounds, nor Brown, 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, possess prototypical size for the position. For what they lack in height and weight, though, they more than make up for in playmaking ability.
