40. A.J. Green, WR, Bengals

Wednesday August 10th, 2016

A legitimate No. 1 receiver from the moment he entered the league as the No. 4 pick in 2011, Green has been named to the Pro Bowl in each of his five seasons and has yet to miss the 1,000-yard mark. The Georgia product carries career per-year averages of 83 catches, 1,234 yards and nine touchdowns into the 2016 season, in which he will try to hit the 100-reception mark for the first time. He was on pace to challenge that mark last year before Andy Dalton suffered a season-ending thumb injury. Standing at 6' 4", Green is almost impossibly silky in his gait. If there has been a knock on Green, it has come from drops—he hit double digits in that category two seasons ago. Last year, he had just two miscues on 132 targets.
