Dreamiest WRs
Mark Reblias-USA TODAY

Watch prime time television, and more likely than not you will see a commercial featuring an NFL wide receiver. The wide receiver position requires its participants to take bone-jarring hits, but it is also one of the most glamorous positions in sports.

Many wide receivers share a common strand of DNA. They are born showmen, born fearless and born for the spotlight. NFL receivers attend an inordinate number of A-list events, appear in an inordinate number of commercials, show up in an inordinate number of gossip magazines and date an inordinate number of female celebrities and models.

Wide receivers also have something else in common: They are an extraordinarily handsome group. This was brought to my attention by my wife. She turned to me during a Green Bay Packers game just after the camera zoomed in on Randall Cobb and his piercing hazel eyes and said, “what’s up with these wide receivers? Why are they all so dreamy?”

The question was rhetorical (and a little emasculating), but it gave me a great slideshow idea. I immediately reached out to my female friends, family and fellow sports writers to ask them who were the best looking wide receivers in the NFL.

I also wanted to factor online buzz as well as public relationships with gorgeous women into the rankings. I searched social media platforms and the Internet service for instances where words and phrases like "dreamy", “good looking”, "handsome" and “hawt” were used to describe particular NFL receivers. Finally, I researched gossip magazines for players who had dated celebrities and supermodels.

From my unscientific polling and online research, I was able to compile the first-ever list of the 25 dreamiest wide receivers in the NFL today.
