The New Orleans Saints have an insane amount of talent at the wide receiver position, which made narrowing this list down a very difficult task.

The wide receiver position for the Saints really only has three for sure locks.

2019 NFL Offensive Player of the Year Michael Thomas is the first, key free-agent signing Emmanuel Sanders is the second, and 2019 Pro Bowler kick/punt returner Deonte Harris is the third.

Sanders was arguably the most crucial signing this off season for the Saints as he’ll give the receiving corps a new dimension. Those three will be crucial pieces for New Orleans this coming season.

Many may also assume Tre’Quan Smith is a lock, but we’ll get into him a bit more later. That said, the team added other receivers this offseason in Bennie Fowler and Ty Montgomery. If both will crack the roster is an entire different conversation as well.

With plenty of talent fighting for probably three spots, the bottom half of this position group needs to show off during training camp. That said, let’s take a look at the six wide receivers the Saints will probably keep following training camp.
