Wide Receivers (6)

Michael Thomas, Chris Olave, Jarvis Landry, Deonte Harty, Marquez Callaway, Tre’Quan Smith

This one feels pretty easy to predict but training camp and preseason will help those on the outside looking in to up their chances of making the team. We know that Michael Thomas, Chris Olave, and Jarvis Landry are going to make the 53-man roster unless injuries occur so that likely leaves three more spots.

For those final three wide receiver spots, I went with Deonte Harty, Marquez Callaway, and Tre’Quan Smith. Harty and Callaway are no-brainers but Smith could be the one who finds himself left off if he doesn’t play well this summer.

I’d love to see one of the UDFAs (Dai’Jean Dixon and/or Rashid Shaheed) crack the roster here but they’ll have to put on one hell of an outing in order to do so. The Saints could opt to carry more than six receivers but six feels like a good number for them with all of the offensive talent they added this offseason.

At least five of these six spots feel pretty set in stone though.
