Top 15 Best White WRs of All-Time

Thanks to shows like The League, whenever you see a white wide receiver, you typically think that the guy is “scrappy” or “a real gym rat.” When you look around the league, there really aren’t that many (maybe just over a dozen or so) that have a big impact on the league. Even the thought of growing up wanting to be a wide receiver as a white kid seems a bit far-fetched.

Throughout the history of the league, there has been a lot of white wide receivers, even if the number has dropped dramatically in the past couple of decades. But which ones stand out among the best of the best? It’s hard to rank them since a lot of the receivers played in a time where passing wasn’t as prevalent.

Still, we wanted to give it a shot anyway and see how they stack up against the best of the best. Here is our list of the 15 greatest white wide receivers in NFL history.

The other receiver in the five digit club is our number one receiver, Steve Largent. Largent, who would become a politician after his NFL career, was a 1976 fourth round pick by the Oilers out of Tulsa. Instead of cutting him after a poor preseason, the Oilers traded him to the Seahawks, who were grateful. That’s because Largent would go on to become a seven time Pro Bowl and All-Pro selection, as well as a member of the 1980s All-Decade Team. Largent became a Hall of Famer in 1995 thanks to his career totals of 13,089 yards and 100 touchdowns, both of which are tops on our list.
