Haven't commented on Turneys site yet, but alot of receivers didn't get their due...

My Top 5

Warfield Hutson Rice Alworth Harrison

I love Rice, but he dropped too many passes. Warfield and Hutson we're ultimate weapons. Alworth could jump 12 feet for a pass and Harrison broke many ankles leaving defenders in the dust.
