    But playing receiver isn't just about being physical. That's one aspect of a single version of wide receiver. The slot guys are forced to take bigger hits, that's for sure, and often times have to improvise their routes. The slot guys are required to read defenses more than the sideline runners. Just because the outside guys are often giant freaks of nature doesn't mean they would handle the slot better than a Welker-type who can slip between the cracks.

    They serve different roles. There's no way the outside guys are just "better receivers" than slot guys. They get the attention because they get to be a part of the sexier plays.
    Slot guys aren't as good on the outside and that is why they are in the slot and that is usually because of size. They aren't usually pressed and struggle on the outside because its not their element and eliminates their normal 2 way go. Outside guys are generally built for that kind of activity on the outside and they may not have the same kind of production as a Wes Welker in the slot but they would still be very productive. Welker would not catch 100 balls playing on the outside.

      I don't know where you were last season if you didn't have DT in your top 10 WRs. You can make arguments that you factor in how long a WR has performed well, but at 6'3", 230lbs, and a 4.3 40yard dash time, this dude was raw talent. After a year of working with Peyton and being able to run every route in the book, this dude is hands down one of the best at his position.
      Did you see the Ravens playoff game? DT is a terrific talent but he does not dominate at clutch time. Give DT some years to get it down.

        His third down stats and playoff win against the steelers says otherwise

          He made clutch catches time after time with Tim Tebow. The TD in the Dolphins game to send it to OT, the 3rd down conversion and TD late against Chicago. There was his huge performance against the Steelers. His lone TD against the Ravens was in the 4th quarter and put us up by 7, a lead we held until Rahim Moore misplayed a hail mary. He didn't get to show it much this year because we were in the lead for almost all of our games.
