Miles Austin not among the best WRs

When the 2010 season ended, Miles Austin was 25th in catches (69), 14th in yards (1,041) and 21st in touchdowns (seven). He was also tied for 10th with 17 catches of 20 or more yards.

Austin was not the dominant receiver numbers-wise in 2010 like he was in 2009.

Yet, Austin is still an excellent receiver that threatens defenses with his run-after-catch ability. If there was one negative to Austin's game last year it was the career-high 10 drops.

Well in rankings among the ESPN NFL bloggers, they don't think much of Austin's game.

He's not even ranked among the Top 10 receivers in the NFL and only one of the voter, James Walker of the AFC North, gave him a vote.

You probably don't have a problem seeing Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Roddy White, Calvin Johnson and Reggie Wayne in the Top 5. Greg Jennings and DeSean Jackson are most likely Top 10 receivers and are ranked there.

After that it's pretty subjective.
Calvin Watkins joined ESPNDallas.com in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
