Arizona Cardinals: Top Five NFC West Receivers
The NFC West has some talented receivers spread throughout each of the four teams
We know the Arizona Cardinals have talented receivers. However, so do the Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, and San Francisco 49ers. Here I list the top five receivers in the division heading into the 2015 NFL season.

The list is complied with a balance of history and what they are projected to do this season. Keep in mind these projections are completely based on opinion and the opinions of those that I’ve spoken to and read. It was difficult to find the top five because there are so many but here is what I came up with.

5. Tyler Lockett, Seahawks
Lockett is a rookie. This I know. Lockett comes to the Seahawks after leading the Kansas State Wildcats in career receptions, yardage, and touchdowns. Just last year in 2014 alone, he led the Wildcats with 106 receptions for 1,515 yards and 11 touchdowns. He finished his Wildcats career with 249 receptions for 3,710 yards and 29 touchdowns in 47 games.
He is going to be a huge target for quarterback Russell Wilson. Oh and before you go trying to tell me Jimmy Graham will produce more for the Seahawks this year, you are probably right. However I am basing this list purely on those players listed as a wide receiver, not tight end.
Lockett is going to put up big numbers along with Graham. With the Seahawks running game being their bread and butter in the past now their passing game comes to the forefront. Lockett, Doug Bladwin, Paul Richardson, and Jermaine Kearse is a pretty darn good foursome.
