Pierre Garçon Ranked Among League's Best Wide Receivers

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Washington Redskins Pierre Garçon ranked 24th in NFL.com top 40 wide receiver list.

NFL.com recently released their list of the top 40 wide receivers in the league. Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garçon checked in at number 24. You can View the List Here.

Garçon, the Redskins top receiving target, is coming off an injury-plagued season that saw him play in just 10 games. In those 10 games, he caught 44 passes, for 633 yards and four touchdowns, including an impressive 88 yard catch-and-run in the season opening victory over the New Orleans Saints. The health of Garçon will be key to the Redskins success in the passing game, and the maturation of Super Sophomore Robert Griffin III.

Garçon has been held out of OTA's this spring while he is rehabbing from off-season surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. Aside from his shoulder, Garçon is also battling a torn ligament on the bottom of his foot that he suffered last season. He claims the foot is improving, and that he will be wearing Special Shoes to help in the healing process.

Garçon fell into the catagory entitled "Prove It", which seems about right to me. Coaches, writers and fans feel the 26 year old has the potential to be a true number one in this league, but he still has yet to show this ability on a regular basis.

Of note, the Giants, Eagles and Cowboys all had two receivers land on this list. Dez Bryant was the highest in the division at number five. Hakeem Nicks(14), Victor Cruz(18), Jeremy Maclin(25), Miles Austin(30) and DeSean Jackson(31) rounded out the division.
