Changing of the guard

Over the last 20 years wide receiver has been the deepest position in sports, with current and future Hall of Famers Jerry Rice, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Art Monk, Michael Irvin, Andre Reed, Marvin Harrison, Randy Moss, and Torry Holt, along with guys who deserve a sniff but won't get it like Gary Clark, Henry Ellard, Irving Fryar, Jimmy Smith, Keenan McCardell, Isaac Bruce, Eric Moulds, and Terrell Owens. Conventional wisdom is that Harrison or Steve Smith is the best receiver in the NFL right now, but after watching just about every first team snap of every team this preseason, I'd ready to say Roy Williams and Andre Johnson are the two best receivers in the NFL right now.
