    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    But you take a top ten WR list without Andre Johnson seriously? So you won't take von miller being the 4th best player in the league or aaron Rodgers 4 spots behind manning? I'm sorry I just don't understand. Evan Mathis had a absolutely fantastic year. Not sure if I'd rank him 6 overall but he was one of the best guards in the NFL last year. I don't think they weight it as to how highly valued their respective position is but how well they appeared to do their job. I don't rely on PFF for anything but I can deny they clearly analyze the tape. Dwight freeney was ranked over Cameron wake on the nfl players top 100. He got the respect he deserved on their list

    I never said Julio made Matt Ryan. Matt Ryan is good QB, not great, but good. If you've seen many Falcons games, you'll see and hear announcers say Julio snatched the ball away from the DB and made Matty Ice look good. Neither of us is going to convince the other at this point, but like I've repeated, every media source I've seen has Julio above DT. I don't think that's a coincidence.
    It's a short timing based offense, defenses know this. Julio does get a S over the top but teams still come up and play physical with him. If Julio ran better routes he would get more separation and wouldn't have to snatch the ball away from the DB. Matt Ryan does the same thing with White and Gonzalez, he's great at completing passes in tight coverage. You don't notice it as much with White and Gonzalez because they're superior route runners and at getting off the LoS.

    The question was what makes Julio better. I share your opinion that's it's pretty close and I have Julio slightly higher. Let me again reitterate, I'm a HUGE DT fan. The growth he showed this past season was one of the biggest transformations I've seen a WR have ever. With Tebow he mainly ran fly's and posts routes. He ran a lot more last season and put up good statistics. However, I'll be honest, I was a bit disappointmented in the game vs the Ravens. I was hoping he was ready for the big stage and he struggled to get open in that last game and had about 3 drops that I remember. In Julio's last game, in the conference championship, he had 182 yards and two TDs. He showed he was ready for the big stage. Matt Ryan choked in the 2nd half and Julio's #'s dropped in the 2nd half, but even still, he had 11 catches for 182.

    In my opinion, Julio plays with a less superior QB that doesn't always put the ball in place where only he can get it. From what I've seen, Julio makes Matt Ryan look better than he is. That's not DT's fault Peyton is a legend, but Peyton's audibles and ball placement aides DT more than Julio. The reason I place Julio slightly above DT is I see him take balls away from DB's, take slants and dig routes for 30-40 yards. A lot of the big plays I see Julio make, he's often well defended, but he just makes a play and catches the ball naturally. DT sometimes has issues with drops and because it doesn't seem as natural. DT's runs a lot of fly's and posts, which I'm not saying is bad, he's just usually put in a great spot by Peyton. I'd say Julio runs more routes, has slightly better hands, and is slightly faster.
    yea, Julio Jones makes one of the best QB's in the NFL look better than he is. A guy who threw only 4 less touchdowns and 5 less interceptions the year before Julio entered the league than he did last year. Matt Ryan has gotten better every single year. You implied it was Julio who made Matt Ryan. Not Roddy, not Gonzalez, not proven commodities but a second year player.

    Julio Jones had some of the worst hands in 2011 and he did improve in 2012 but he still dropped some very catch-able balls as did DT.

    DT had 29 20+ yard plays while Julio had 17. DT had 538 yards after catch and Julio had 346.

    DT has also proved to be more clutch on 3rd down.

    The point about the playoff game is valid. JJ did show up in that game. We know just how much DT can step up in a playoff game though. Let's not pretend he didn't win that game at Pittsburgh for us.

    Does anyone factor blocking into the equation? I definitely do.

    OK then what is it that Jones does that makes him the "consensus pick" better than DT? If stats dont back up your theory what is it in real life football...play to play?
    Jones biggest strength is his abilty to get seperation and make the big play, yet DT nearly doubled him in big plays (NFL uses 20+ as their threshold) 29 to 17. Thomas is one of the best in the league after the catch and so is Jones, so where is it exactly that Jones gets the nod? Better hands? Better routes? Speed? Blocking? Strength? Im curious....

    And if you think Eric Decker requires the top coverage guy on him more often than Roddy White requires on him, then your crazy. On excellent offensive teams with many good WRs you often see a huge increase in production with teams #2 guy. Last year is a perfect example where Julio Jones, Lance Moore, and Eric Decker all put in great seasons because of what Roddy White, Marques Colston and DT were capable across from them.

    Its not splitting hairs, its production,...... and until Julio Jones does something to widen the gap, you are not going to convince me that hes a better just by what you expect him to do in the future.
    I HAVE NEVER SAID HE WAS BETTER, HANDS DOWN! some people really need to learn how to read

    ive stated MULTIPLE times that they are a group of WRs that i believe are completely interchangeable. If you can show me a handful of legitimate opinions that show Julio as the "consensus" better WR then i may change my mind, but my guess is you wont

    i never said he was better, this entire thread the others and myself are simply saying he is nowhere near over-rated and after calvin, aj, and fitz (maybe andre) there are VERY good group of young players who are basically interchangeable in spots 4-10.
