Las Vegas Raiders: 10 best wide receivers taken in the NFL Draft
By Matt Holder
1. Tim Brown
- 1988 / Round 1 / Pick 6
Admittedly, it was a tough decision to choose between Fred Biletnikoff and Tim Brown for the number one spot on this list. At the end of the day, I had to go with the player who not only leads the organization in every major statistical category for wide receivers but also by a large margin.
Brown played 16 seasons in Los Angeles and Oakland and racked up 1,070 catches for 14,734 yards and 99 touchdowns. He leads Biletnikoff in each respective category by 481; 5,760; and 23. It’s also worth noting that he helped the organization get to the playoffs six times and was a key contributor for the 2002 AFC Championship team.
The Hall of Famer is one of the top wide receivers in NFL history as well, ranking seventh in receiving yards and receptions, and is tied for ninth in touchdowns. Not only is the former Golden Domer one of the greatest wideouts in Raiders’ history, but also one of the best to ever lace em’ up. Las Vegas would be lucky to find the next Touchdown Brown in the upcoming draft.
