The NFL’s best outside wide receivers, No. 4: Julio Jones, Falcons
The fact that Jones is only No. 4 speaks to the talent ahead of him on this list. Atlanta’s 2011 first-rounder paced all NFL receivers in 2015 with 136 catches and 1,871 yards—a clip of 116.9 yards per game. Jones is the league’s alltime leader with 95.4 yards per game for his career, well clear of runner-up Calvin Johnson (86.1). He exploded last season despite a near complete lack of help from his fellow receivers. An aging Roddy White caught 43 passes, Leonard Hankerson caught 26 and everything else ran through Jones, Devonta Freeman and, to a far lesser extent, Jacob Tamme. Jones remains as lethal as there is when it comes to tracking the deep ball and adjusting for a catch.
