We all have our favorites and those tend to be much different than the best of any particular sport.

They tend to be guys we loved from our favorite teams or favorite colleges or they were guys we liked for certain things they did on the field differently than their peers.

I loved dudes who had a little flare to them and could come up with a great touchdown celebration.

And I always loved dudes who played for the University of Miami and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Here is a look at my favorite wide receivers in the NFL during my lifetime.
