Wide Receivers (5)

Michael Thomas

Emmanuel Sanders

Tre’Quan Smith

Deonte Harris

Emmanuel Butler

I chose the Saints to keep only five receivers since I believe Taysom Hill and hopefully Tommy Stevens will be included in the passing game.

The first four spots are pretty much gimmes, but who will claim that fifth and final one? I have to give the slight edge to Emmanuel Butler as of right now since he showed a lot of potential in training camp and has a year of experience under the Saints system.

That can be a huge advantage over rookies Juwan Johnson and Marquez Callaway, who the Saints added after the draft.

A dark horse candidate may very well be former Saint Tommylee Lewis, who signed a reserve/future contract back in January. This battle will definitely be one to keep your eyes on as training camp approaches.
