46. . Wide Receiver. 2012-Present. T.Y. Hilton. 28. player

It’s still very early in T.Y. Hilton‘s career, as least when compared the other superstar wide receivers who have played for this franchise over the years. Despite that, what we’ve seen from Hilton so far more than warrants a spot on this list.

Entering the league the same year as Andrew Luck, he’s quietly asserted himself as one of the NFL’s most electric pass catchers. Although he doesn’t get nearly as much attention as some of the other big-name receivers in today’s NFL, the stats don’t lie.

Despite this being only Hilton’s seventh season with the club, he’s already worked his way up to fourth on the team’s all-time receiving yards list. He’s still got ways to go before he’s able to take the next step on that list, but that he’s already gotten to that point proves that Hilton is one of the Colts’ best receivers in franchise history.

His four Pro Bowls don’t do justice to just how outstanding Hilton has been in his time in Indianapolis. Heck, the kid led the league in receiving yards back in 2016. It’s time he got the credit he deserves as one of the NFL’s most electric receivers of the modern era.
