Carter is definitely top 5. Arguably the best hands in NFL history and his ability to extend for the ball and make sideline catches was unreal. So natural to him, made it look easy. Carter didn't rack up significant yardage but his ability to move the chains and produce in the redzone set him apart. He also played with so many different starting QBs. He really never had one guy throwing him the ball for an extended period of time.

Just to name a few modern guys, Carter is not better than Rice, Moss, T.O, Calvin Johnson, Julio and Fitzgerald.

Rice, and Moss are above. T.O. likely has a case as well. Julio and Fitzgerald...Nope. Maybe down the road Julio could be in the conversation but at this point in his career not a chance

Isaac Bruce is too high.

I hope this is a joke. Hutson dominated the game when he played. Jordy? Not so much.

You might as well have said no one cares about history if you are just going to ignore players who you never heard of and never saw play.

Carter really popularized the sideline toe tap catch. I wouldn't say he had the best hands in history, but they were great. I would probably rank him somewhere after 5 at this point however, there have been too many great WRs to come and go since he retired.

Not going to list 30 receivers. Can't be accurate when you do that many.

1. Jerry Rice
2. Don Hutson
3. Lance Alworth
4. Raymond Berry
5. Larry Fitzgerald

I really don't think that Rice is the clear cut GOAT on a technical skill level. For longevity yes. But Alworth and Hutson were faster. Berry ran more precise patterns. Rice was probably the toughest.

Greatness is tested over time, and I don't think any of the other receivers on your list were capable of the type of production we saw with Rice as a Raider. Also, his postseason play was outstanding on those Niner SB teams.

Because Curly Lambeau developed the 1930s passing game and the modern T formation was created by Halas's Bears, post WW II was a boon for QBs. It is simple ignorance to overlook early WRs.

A list without Don Hutson, Max Magee, Raymond Berry, Lance Alworth, Lynn Swann and Paul Warfield is incomplete.
