It’s team-building season, and that means all 32 NFL franchises are spending countless hours figuring out how to shape their respective rosters for 2021 and beyond.

One of the big decisions is where to add talent, whether from the NFL draft, in free agency or via trade. Teams assess their weaknesses and look at all potential options in a given position group.

In this series, we’ll investigate the strengths and weaknesses of all positions this offseason with an eye toward the draft, free agency and potential trade options. Here’s a look at the 2021 offseason wide receiver and tight end market.


Free Agency (Free Agent board rank)
  1. Chris Godwin (2)
  2. Allen Robinson II (3)
  3. Kenny Golladay (4)
  4. Will Fuller V (11)
  5. JuJu Smith-Schuster (23)
  6. Corey Davis (24)
  7. Antonio Brown (30)
  8. T.Y. Hilton (38)
