Maybe Packers receiver Greg Jennings, who will become an unrestricted free agent on March 12, will get a big payday after all.

Some reports this offseason have downplayed Jennings' value on the open market, but if ProFootballFocus.com is correct, Jennings could be the most valuable receiver available: http://bit.ly/12f6CO2

PFF compiled a list of the top free agent receivers this offseason, and Jennings is ranked No. 1. Here is their top-10:

1. Greg Jennings
2. Wes Welker
3. Dwayne Bowe
4. Mike Wallace
5. Danny Amendola
6. Brian Hartline
7. Brandon Gibson
8. Domenik Hixon
9. Randy Moss
10. Johnny Knox

Besides overall talent, PFF factors in age and injuries to its rankings. These are some of the comments PFF made about Jennings:

Arguably the most complete receiver available, but one coming off some injury concerns. Jennings has speed to burn and is one of the slickest route runners in the league. He is equally at home inside in the slot as he is out wide, and there isnít a route in the tree he canít run. While other receivers in this list are best suited to certain offensive systems, there isnít a system that Jennings wouldnít fit.

His 2012 season was derailed with injury, but in 2011 Aaron Rodgers had a 124.0 passer rating when targeting Jennings, and Jennings notched nine touchdowns.

If teams are satisfied that Jennings isnít a durability concern going forward, he should be the marquee receiver and the first guy pursued by multiple teams trying to answer their question at the position. Fast, fluid and efficient with zero character questions, he makes the most sense.
