We continue our ranking of the NFC North and rank the teams from worst to best in terms of their pass catchers which includes tight ends and wide receivers.
Dairyland Express is ranking anything and everything related to the NFC North this offseason. So far, we’ve done the quarterbacks, running backs and overall teams. Today, we take a look at the pass-catchers.
The pass catchers category include wide receivers and tight ends and their ability to make something happening in the passing game altogether.
The Green Bay Packers have had one of the best combination of pass-catchers for years. They’ve seen wide receivers like Donal Driver, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Randall Cobb and now Davante Adams cycle through their franchise. Unfortunately, their grip on that title is slipping quickly.
Here’s how the rankings work: A team gets one point for coming in at fourth place, two points for third place, three points for second place and four points for first place. Whichever team has the most points at the end of the summer is considered the ultimate NFC North franchise.
Here’s a look at the standings so far:
- Green Bay Packers (10 points)
- Minnesota Vikings (eight points)
- Detroit Lions (six points)
- Chicago Bears (six points)
So, without further ado, let’s dive in to the pass-catching rankings.
