    Percy Harvin #5 wide-receiver?

    I think there were probably better wide receivers but absolutely nobody who could play hybrid the way percy could.

    McCarron or Leinhart you could put in the convo with Tebow, but Vince Young? Give me a break.

    I think some of you forget how good Young was. He single handily beat the Trojans in that epic title game. Difference between Tebow and Young, intangibles. It's close, if you ask me. 1a/1b

    Both deserving of being one, really.

    Young was great in '05, his career numbers just don't really stack up.

    Tebow: 9,285 yards/88 TDs/16 Int - 2,987 rushing/57 TDs
    Young: 6,040 yards/44 TDs/28 Int - 3,127 rushing/37 TDs

    QB- Don't disagree about Young. I think Tebow should be #2 because of his career-long accomplishments, but Newton's NC season proved him to be a more talented and more NFL ready QB.

    Harvin was a hybrid. He didn't make that many great catches. No question that Fitzgerald and Johnson were better WRs, probably others. Harvin is catching up with them in the NFL. If he stays healthy this season, he could prove to be a comparable WR. Even then, his overall contribution in the league is still due primarily to his kick return numbers. He may be the best in decades. And to think he never returned a single punt or kickoff at UF.
