Is 2013 The Year Julio Jones Becomes The Team's Top Receiver?

Scott Cunningham

The Falcons have a lot of good problems. They have to extend one of the best quarterbacks in the league, they have preposterous depth at cornerback and they have two of the best receivers in the league as a tandem. Sure, it will cost them money and it's not always easy to deploy all those assets efficiently, but a lot of teams would kill to have that problem.

One of the side effects of having such worthy targets in the passing game is that one of the most promising young receivers in the game today is actually the second or third option on a lot of routes. Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez both reeled in more catches in 2012 than Julio Jones, and while that's not at all a problem for this offense, it's worth wondering when Jones will become the true #1 option.

So let's debate. Will Jones take over in 2013, or will White continue to rack up the most targets?
