Ranking The NFL's Top Ten WRs For The 2009 Season: #9 Marques Colston

Colston missed the bulk of the 2008 season with injuries, but he's still a force to be reckoned with.

His 2007 season was a career year as Colston pulled in 98 passes for 1202 and 11 TDs. In 2008 he played in 11 games and caught 47 ball for 760 yards, despite breaking his thumb in the early weeks of the season.

Colston benefits from great offensive production on his New Orleans Saints team. Drew Brees gets everyone involved and Colston is far and away the most talented WR on the team. In 2007, he moved the sticks 64 times. That means 65% of his receptions were caught for first downs.

A 6-4, 225-pound frame benefits Colson as a possession receiver, but he can still go the distance and make big plays. He goes over the middle primarily, but the Saints run so many vertical passing routes, that Colston gets his fair share of deep balls.

Colston will certainly rebound just fine from his injury and look to posting numbers similar to his phenomenal 2007 season.
