5. Alfred Jenkins

Alfred Jenkins went to college at Morris Brown, and started his professional football career with the Birmingham Americans of the WFL in 1974. He was picked up by the Falcons prior to the 1975 season. His best season with the Falcons was 1981, when he was selected as a first team All-Pro by catching 70 balls for 1,358 yards and 13 touchdowns, leading the league in yards and TDs. He played 110 games for the Falcons starting at wide receiver, and caught 360 passes for 6,267 yards and 40 TDs. Jenkins retired after the 1983 season and will probably be on this list for decades to come. Unless another young cat like Julio Jones comes around in the next couple of years, but I doubt that will happen any time soon.
