Cris Carter's Top 10 NFL receivers


Who are the absolute best receivers in the NFL today?

ESPN asked ex-Viking great Cris Carter to put together his Top 10 list.

Carter, who will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame this weekend in Canton, had two players with Minnesota ties on his list, but neither is a current Viking.

At No. 2, he has Arizona Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald Jr., saying the former Viking ball boy may have had a sub-1,000 yard season last year -- but he had no one throwing to him. Carter says that should change now that Carson Palmer is under center in Arizona.

At No. 10, Carter picks Seattle Seahawk Percy Harvin. If Harvin makes a full recovery from his hip surgery, Carter says Percy could be as dangerous as he was at the start of last year, when he was a legitimate MVP candidate.
