While the Atlanta Falcons went all-in in the 2011 Draft to acquire Julio Jones, a 6'3 220 WR from Alabama who they thought was the missing piece to get them over the top, the New York Giants showed that the top of the draft wasn't the only place to find an elite WR this season.
Victor Cruz, an undrafted free agent out of Massachusetts, developed an incredible chemistry with Eli Manning after not playing a single regular-season snap last year, catching 76 balls for 1,358 yards and 8 TD's this season.
Jones, meanwhile, overcame a slow start to come on strong at the end of the year for the Falcons, finishing with 50 catches for 880 yards and 8 TD's, with six coming in the final four weeks of the season.
Both young WR's could be in line for a big game Sunday Jan. 8 at the MetLife Stadium, as New York's pass defense is rated 27th in the NFL and Atlanta's is rated 19th.
