    What is a "#1 wr"?.......someone who gets you 1200-1300yds & 14-15tds a season..or is it someone who consistently makes that clutch catch for 10yds when its 3rd and 8 on the go-ahead drive........would you rather have that one "#1wr" on the team ......or............ would you rather have 3-4 wr's/te's that would give you between 600-850yds,6-7tds apiece.......my personal opinion I would rather spread the ball around..what i am trying to
    say is instead of wanting a "#1" 2,3,& ....how about 3 or 4 "#2's"

    Besides......how many TRUE "#1" wr's are there out there?

    Very few true #1 WRs in the NFL. They are guys who change the game. How they do it varies, but the position requires being able to convert 3rd down AND stretch the field. Being better at one can compensate for less ability at the other. But you have to do both. Sometimes teams' perceived need to have a #1 lead them to overpay for guys who dont fit the bill.

    I dont think it is important. You need guys who can change games at whatever position, and aside from QB, it doesnt much matter where they play. In fact, I'll take a guy who changes the game 60 plays a game at DL than a WR who touches the ball 6 times a game and only indirectly affects the defense otherwise.

    A #1 WR is of course the teams best WR. What qualifies though is that you must have talent. Really the only true #1 WR the Titans have ever had was Derrick Mason. Bennett was good but too inconsistant.

    Prolli 15-20 true #1 reciever in the league

    #1 recievers make teh clutch catches, they dont always have 110 yd, 2 td games, but by the end of the season, they have the stats to prove theyre good
