Hakeem Butler

Hakeem Butler is our first wide receiver to this board. He is also the wide receiver I think could give Tre’Quan Smith a run for his money at the No. 3 receiver position. Despite missing his entire rookie season with a broken hand, Butler still has plenty to give.

According to Vincent Frank, “A fourth-round pick out of Iowa State last year, Butler missed his entire rookie season due to an injury. Apparently, he did not do enough to impress head coach Kliff Kingsbury and Co. during training camp.

Arizona shockingly moved on from the talented 6-foot-5 Butler this week. The dude was a legit star for the Cyclones, catching 60 passes for 1,318 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior back in 2018. He should latch on with another team here soon.”

Let’s hope that team is the Saints.

The Saints had quite a few wide receivers in camp and released about five of them this week to cut the receivers down to just five. Butler would have a strong possibility of making the cut though.
