NFL analyst (and former NFL QB) Chris Simms has been releasing countdowns of his top players at different positions this offseason, and he recently released his picks for the top 10 wide receivers in the NFL.

To put it mildly, his rankings are unconventional.

Considering it's just a list of 10 players, it's wild how many surprises are on here. And plenty of these are going to upset some NFL fanbases.

Starting with the top spot, there's no denying that Tyreek Hill has established himself as one of the NFL's top playmakers, but fans in the NFC South will certainly be shaking their heads as the debate often boils down to Michael Thomas vs. Julio Jones.

And speaking of those two, Saints fans won't like seeing Thomas behind Jones.

Still having A.J. Green as the league's No. 7 wideout despite the fact that he's caught just 46 passes since 2017 is a bold ranking, and a No. 10 ranking for Courtland Sutton is certainly planting a flag about the 24-year-old's potential.

These bold picks are also what make Simms' rankings so fun. He's not shy about ranking players exactly how he sees them, whether that goes against the grain or not.
