Like ranking Torry Holt, we found the slotting of Isaac Bruce to be difficult. One of the main weapons on the Rams “Greatest Show on Turf”, Issac Bruce would collect 15,028 Receiving Yards which as of this writing is fourth all time. That is a very impressive number, but what puts him lower on our list is that he was never really considered the best player in his position, was never a First Team All Pro and was only in the top ten in Receiving Yards four times. That may all be true, but unlike Baseball, Football players are not viewed as stat compilers and he does have career numbers that are Canton worthy. If he got in on his first year of eligibility we wouldn’t be surprised. We would say the same if it took him ten tries.

With TO and Moss in, there is no WR left who has a stronger case.

Bruce's best attribute was his superb route running especially the 15-20 yard dig routes that were so deadly in the GSOT days.

Was fifth, second and ninth in catches, yards and receiving TDs when he retired along with a game winning TD in the Super Bowl. Part of a record breaking and iconic offense.

A three time finalist, he won't have to wait much longer.

I don't think I ever saw a receiver as fast as Bruce.
