Hopefully somebody can help clear this up for me whats the difference between a teams #1 #2 and #3 receivers?
right now we have

1. Brown 5'10
2. Wheaton 5'11
3. Bryant 6'5


I think everybody would agree Bryant is better than Wheaton, Wheaton has improved a lot.

Assuming its not just based on who is better, and maybe based on what type of routes the player can run, specific skill sets etc.? can anyone clear this up for me.

Why are you so obsessed with size? Sometimes it seems that you want every player on offense or defense to be 6'5 or higher.

At certain positions height makes a difference, would you rather have someone who is 5'10 with a 30 inch vertical or a guy who is 6'5 with a 30 inch vertical. 7 Inches couldn't possibly help in some situations could it.

I was only cirtical of Golsen because he was like 5'7 160 soaking wet with his pockets full of change and broke his elbow driving to training camp. Does anyone have an answer rather than an ignorant comment?

i've always thought there were several factors, including route running and how well you know the plays, beyond that and the basic chemistry with the QB and getting results I'm not sure.

Indeed. Basically, you number them for how many plays they deserve to be on the field. Basically, coaches will look at all of the factors of a player from route running, to catching, to speed, to run blocking, to the intangibles. The person they feel is has the best overall will be the number 1. Clearly, Brown is a leader and is a great route runner so you want him on the field for the majority of the snaps. Bryant had off the field issues which I'm sure has bumped him down the depth chart.

The heat of the meat is directly proportional to the motion in the ocean.

It's all about the angle of the dangle.
