8. A.J. Green

A.J. Green went Fourth Overall in the 2011 Draft, making the Georgia Bulldog the highest-drafted Wide Receiver that year.

 

Green was inserted immediately into the starting lineup for the Cincinnati Bengals, and he rewarded that faith with 1,057 Yards and a Pro Bowl.  This production would be the norm for Green, who was always flirting with the elite of the Wide Receivers of the National Football League, as he went to the Pro Bowl in the first seven seasons of his career, with a Second Team All-Pro nod in two of them.  In six of his seasons, Green went over the 1,000 Yard mark, with three of those years seeing double-digits in Touchdowns.

The Wide Receiver has been in the top ten in Receiving Yards three times and Receiving Touchdowns four times, and if he can recover from the injury that cost him all of 2019, he could climb even higher on this list.
