The deep stockpile of upper-tier wide receivers in this year's NFL draft has thus far led to a relative lack of movement in the 2014 free-agent wide receiver class.

After the first day of free agency, only seven of the top 30 wideouts on Bill Polian's free-agent tracker list have been signed to deals.

This seeming lack of interest is not reflective of a lack of available pass-catching talent, as there are a number of players on that list who are capable of making an impact in 2014 and beyond.

Three wideouts in particular stand out, so let's take a look at each player's strengths and with which teams they might fit best.

Good team fits: Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots

There is a perception that Demaryius Thomas was the Broncos' best deep threat last season, but Decker's 494 yards on stretch vertical passes (those thrown 20 or more yards downfield) placed fifth in the league and put him just ahead of Thomas' total (491).
