Whenever there are rankings in sports, there will always be disagreements. That applies to former Alabama football receivers ranking former Alabama football receivers, too.

DeVonta Smith joined Darius Slay on "The Volume" podcast this week and ranked his top five Alabama receivers of all time. Then Jerry Jeudy did the same a day later, ranking his top five on Twitter.

Smith won the Heisman Trophy in 2020 while leading Alabama to a national championship win. Playing from 2017-2020, he caught 234 passes for 3,961 yards and 46 touchdowns.

Jeudy played for the Crimson Tide from 2017-2019 and he caught 159 passes for 2,742 yards and 26 touchdowns.

Jeudy is a member of the Denver Broncos and Smith joined the Philadelphia Eagles, both as first-round picks.
