USA Today Ranks The NFL's Best Receiving Corps

Roddy White is entering the elite level of wide receivers. Since 2007, only four players have more receiving yards than White. He's become a big-time, clutch receiver who is coming off a career-high in catches but how does the Falcons receiving corp rank as a unit? USA Today has the answer.

The Falcons' receiving corp - including all receivers, tight ends, and running backs - finishes 10th in the ranks. The analysis courtesy of Nate Davis:

Despite playing with a hodgepodge of quarterbacks in 2007 and rookie Matt Ryan in 2008, Roddy White has quietly posted back-to-back-to-back 1,100-yard seasons. He's supported by Tony Gonzalez, arguably the best tight end of all time. Jerious Norwood could be a wild card out of the backfield.

The rest of the NFC South shakes out as such: Saints (5), Panthers (22), Buccaneers (27).
