The wide receiver position has seen a number of changes this offseason within the AFC East with the most notable move being the Miami Dolphins trading for Tyreek Hill. However, the New York Jets drafted arguably one of the best wide receivers in Garrett Wilson in this year’s draft, the Patriots traded with the Dolphins for Davante Parker. Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills’ most notable move was releasing starting slot receiver Cole Beasley.

Last year, the Buffalo Bills had the best wide receiver group but have any of these moves made by their division rivals enough to move them to the top spot?

Wide Receivers: DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne, Nelson Agholor, Jakobi Meyers, Tyquan Thorton

In the AFC East, the New England Patriots kick off these rankings with arguably the worst group of wide receivers in the division.

Last year, the Patriots were led by Kendrick Bourne and Jakobi Meyers at the position with both players finishing the year with 800 or more receiving yards. They were led by these two wide receivers while Nelson Agholor, who signed a big free agent contract last offseason, struggled his first year in New England.

The Patriots bring back all three with the notable new addition being DeVante Parker, who the Dolphins traded to their division rival. Outside of the 2019 season, when Parker had over 1,200 receiving yards and nine receiving touchdowns, he has largely struggled in the NFL.

If Parker performs as he did in 2019 for New England, it certainly will change this group but that doesn’t seem likely based on what he has shown for the majority of his career.
