Who has the best hands in the NFC South? If you go purely by the numbers, it’s Tampa Bay’s Vincent Jackson.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Jackson is the only NFC South wide receiver to be targeted at least 20 times who has not dropped a pass. Jackson also is one of only 13 receivers in the NFL who has been targeted 20 times and not had a drop.

Jackson has been targeted 61 times and has 29 receptions for 626 yards and five touchdowns.

Atlanta’s Roddy White, who led the NFL with 15 drops last year, has apparently solved that problem. White has a 95.2 catch percentage (receptions divided by receptions plus drops) and that ties him with Carolina’s Brandon LaFell for second in the NFC South. White has dropped only two passes, while being targeted 55 times and producing 40 receptions.

Here’s a look at the catch percentages for other NFC South wide receivers:
