I was just curious about everyone's thoughts on this. I know alot will say Greg Jennings, but i'm talking about all around Wr. I personally have to go with Hines Ward from the Steelers, he can play wr, rb, and qb if he has to. He puts up the yards and tds, and even throws tds, But he also blocks, and not those little get in the way blocks but decleating blocks. He has been fined twice this year for his blocks but yet he never got the flag thrown on them. I found this video on youtube which pretty much shows his all around play.
Like i said i was just curious what others thought on this.

Hines is one of the best that's for sure. I haven't watched all of the receivers in the NFL but I do pay attention to the Steelers.
They are one of my favorite teams.

Bell all around? Blocking? Catching? Route Running? After the catch?

Andre Johnson, Texans... guy is a bigger faster version of Hines Ward.. wicked blocker in the running game and a monster in the passing game.. total package.

Doesn't get the pub he should.. but a struggling team will do that.. I would build a team around that kid.

I'm gonna second that. Theres not really any other guy I can think of that does all the things that Zero & Dhazer mentioned.

Hines is a big time blocker, but he isn't very fast, and isn't exactly the best route runner or runner.

I know this is cliche but I'd take Randy Moss. Yes, he can't block worth a damn. Yes, he's kind of a punk. Yes, he has a low IQ. But he opens things up for an O. He's hands down the best WR since Jerry Rice.

Try covering a guy who's 6'4" and runs a 4.29. Give him a good QB and you have to gameplan to stop him more than any other WR in the NFL. Heck, he made Daunte I'm Glad the Packers Didn't Get Him Culpepper look good.

I thought we were including route running though?

Best all around? Blocking... Catching... Route Running... After the catch...

Randy Moss Cant/Doesn't block, Doesn't run that great of routes, dangerous after the catch, but no so much now. I still don't think he is as fast as he was in Minnesota. Actually I don't think hes as good period as he was in Minnesota.

Just last year, he scored 23 TDs. Broke Rice's record.

The only problem is Tom Brady's injured. Give him Aaron Rodgers or Brett Favre and you'd see Moss get double digit TDs again and 1200+ yards.
