Seven rookie wide receivers have at least 5 touchdowns this year
The 2014 NFL Draft was very deep at the wide receiver position apparently. According to Randall Liu, seven different rookies have already scored 5 touchdowns this season at the wide receiver position. The most impressive part of the list is Allen Hurns who was an undrafted free agent.

Another player to keep an eye on is Brandin Cooks for the Saints and Odell Beckham Jr. for the Giants who are closing in on 5 receiving touchdowns. Both receivers have 3 each, and will likely hit five soon.
