The post-Drew Brees era is officially slated to begin for the New Orleans Saints next season. Regardless of who the starting quarterback will be, the Saints do have a handful of talented receivers to help them succeed in 2021.
Here's a look at the Saints' updated WR depth chart for 2021.
Saints WR Depth Chart 2021
1. Michael Thomas
It's not even a question who the Saints' No. 1 wideout is. Nobody on the roster is close to matching Michael Thomas' talents or resume. While he did miss nine games last season, he should be back and healthy to start the new campaign. Besides, it was only two seasons ago when he caught 9 touchdowns and recorded a jaw-dropping 1,725 receiving yards.
2. Tre'Quan Smith
Tre'Quan Smith has some big shoes to fill this season. With Emmanuel Sanders gone, Smith is the team's No. 2 WR. The 25-year-old caught 68% of his targets last season for 448 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns. It was a modest outing, but he'll need to show major signs of improvement in 2021.
3. Marquez Callaway
An undrafted free agent in 2020, Marquez Callaway is slated to be the Saints' No. 3 wideout. He barely saw the field last season, however, he was productive with what he had to work with. Callaway finished his rookie campaign with 21 receptions on 27 targets for 213 yards.
4. Deonte Harris
Deonte Harris could be poised to take his game to the next level in the 2021 NFL season. The 23-year-old has appeared in 23 games as a returner for the Saints over the last two seasons, recording 1,917 all-purpose yards and a punt returned for a touchdown.
5. Juwan Johnson
Juwan Johnson will be looking to have a bigger role in New Orleans this season. The previous campaign saw him targeted just 10 times for 4 receptions and 39 yards.
6. Lil'Jordan Humphrey
7. Kawaan Baker
8. Jake Lampman
9. Jalen McCleskey
10. Easop Winston Jr.
