Rank the AFC West: WRs

This is a thread for the Addicts among us.  Who among the AFC West sports the best WRs, and who sports the worst?

Vote in comments, and be sure to keep track of your votes as this series rolls on. It could be interesting to see how good you think each team is once you add up all your rankings.

The following are your depth charts at WR:

Denver Broncos: Eddie Royal, Brandon Lloyd, Jabar Gaffney, Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker

Kansas City Chiefs: Dwayne Bowe, Johnny Baldwin, Verran Tucker, Jerheme Urban, Chris Chambers, Kevin Curtis

Oakland Raiders: Louis Murphy, Jacoby Ford, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Johnny Lee Higgins, Denarius Moore

San Diego Chargers: Vincent Jackson, Malcolm Floyd, Patrick Crayton, Legedu Naanee, Vincent Brown

My vote after the jump. Yours is invited in comments.

1. Chargers — The Chargers are loaded with big, talented receivers. The combo of Floyd, Crayton, and Naanee allowed the Chargers to get by without Jackson just fine.  Brown is an intriguing rookie, and Jackson is the best receiver in the AFC West.

2. Broncos — Royal is a perenniel threat downfield, while Lloyd and Gaffney are two whipsmart veterans who know how to get open.  Thomas is recovering from injury but looked special in his limited opportunities.

3. Chiefs – The Chiefs headline with a Pro Bowler in Bowe, and the next Vincent Jackson in Baldwin.  But after that, they have young crap that hasn’t amounted to anything, and old crap that hasn’t amounted to anything.

4. Raiders — If Jacoby Ford can build off his rookie season, we might have to re-adjust these rankings, but I think he’s as good as he’ll ever be.  Murphy is a blue collar receiver, but isn’t going to light up scoreboards. Heyward-Bey is a huge disappointment, but I like Moore as a deep threat.

So, assuming a 1st is 4 points, and a 4th is 1 point, this is my individual position scoreboard so far:

Chargers: 10
Chiefs: 8
Broncos: 7
Raiders: 5
