2. Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Many teams struggle to find one WR1. The Buccaneers have two. Chris Godwin is a former Pro Bowler and second-team All-Pro. He is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and has hit that milestone three times in the past four years.

Godwin can do it all. Whether he's lined up on the outside or in the slot, Godwin is close to unstoppable at his best. He averages an incredible 78.2 yards per game over the past four seasons.

1. Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Is Mike Evans the most underrated wide receiver in the NFL? He has put up 1,000+ receiving yards in each of his first nine seasons, the first player to ever do so in league history.

Evans has spent all nine seasons of his career with the Buccaneers, catching 683 passes for 10,425 yards and 81 touchdowns. He leads the Buccaneers all-time in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns.

The former first-round pick is a four-time Pro Bowler, a second-team All-Pro, and he helped the Buccaneers win the Super Bowl in 2020. But he still doesn't get the respect he deserves.

The NFC South features plenty of receiving talent, but it's still the Buccaneers' dominant duo of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin at the top of the rankings.
