Inside Slant: NFL's Top 5 WR Duos

In today's pass happy NFL, teams are stockpiling talent and depth at wide receiver. Find out who makes our list of the top five pass catching duos across the league.

5. Despite durability issues in the case of Austin Miles and character issues for Dez Bryant, this combination of wideouts can be as deadly as they come in the passing game. While Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has endured his share of struggles, when Bryant and Miles are healthy and focused they are tough to beat. If they can stay out of the trainer's room, look for a big year from the boys from Dallas.

4. Big Blue's Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks were the instrumental in the team's run to a Lombardi Trophy during the 2011 season. Cruz' agility and speed is truly elite, and Nicks is no slouch athletically either. On the strength of Eli Manning's arm and these two playmakers on the outside, expect the Giants passing attack to finish in the top five this upcoming season.

3. Not only will they have future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning throwing in their direction but Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas are as about as dynamic as they come on the gridiron. Welker's precise route running and Thomas' tremendous size and physicality will be a nightmare for opponents to deal with for years to come. Look for a record breaking season from this knockout one-two punch.

2. He might be the best receiver on the planet but Lions' receiver Calvin Johnson has a pretty talented sidekick in Nate Burleson. Detroit is a team on the rise and with powerful production from its wideouts, the sky is the limit for young Matthew Stafford. Expect a record-shattering 2013 campaign from the Motor City's double wideout act.

1. If Roddy White and Julio Jones were on different teams, each would be widely regarded as a No. 1 receiving target. They're simply as good as it gets elevating to make spectacular grabs and their ability to create extra yardage after the catch is uncanny. With Matt Ryan feeling the heat in Atlanta, he can rest easy knowing he has the league's best combination of receivers at his disposal.
