These sites have the information you want. This information will need to be verified in the coming year.

To be a good receiver, you must have a cool name

Thanks. I will check it and make the needed correction.

There are a variety of tools used in evaluating wide receivers, although there is no one tool that really provides the definitive evaluation.

Frank DuPont, who writes for Pro Football Focus, developed a metric for evaluating production that attempts to take into account receiving yards, receiving touchdowns, speed and weight.

The formula he developed is: (Weight/40-Yard Time) + (Touchdowns/Game) + (Yards/Game).

At this point my wide receiver pool has a total of 41 prospects. Here is how they ranked on DuPont's metric. (I used their career numbers in yards receiving and touchdowns).

The higher the number is, the better the score.
