With the NFL Draft and height of free agency in the rear view mirror, it is time to start looking ahead to the start of the 2021 season. A lot of prolific wide receivers were drafted and the Washington Football Team took advantage of the class depth by selecting Dyami Brown in the third round.
Washington will look to win the NFC East division for the second consecutive season and could do so by using an air raid offense led by new starting quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Here's a look at Washington's updated WR depth chart for 2021.
Washington WR Depth Chart 2021
1. Terry McLaurin
Terry McLaurin has been one of the most exciting young wide receivers in the NFL since he was drafted in the third round back in 2019. He takes on the No. 1 receiving role on this team and will look to build off of a successful 2020 season. McLaurin racked up 1,118 yards on 87 receptions and scored 4 touchdowns last year.
2. Curtis Samuel
The Washington Football Team made a splash this offseason by signing Curtis Samuel to a three-year deal in free agency. The 24-year-old continues to improve with every NFL season he plays and posted career-high marks in receptions (77) and total yards (1,051) last season. His ability to line up anywhere on offense gives Washington a versatile weapon to work with.
3. Adam Humphries
Samuel wasn't the only WR Washington signed this offseason as the team also brought in veteran Adam Humphries. While his last two seasons have been subpar, Humphries has the chance to shine in the slot position for this team moving forward. He as a career catch percentage of 71.0% and could act as a check-down option for Fitzpatrick in 2021.
4. Cam Sims
Washington may have found a diamond in the rough with fourth-year player Cam Sims. He burst onto the scene last year making one ridiculous catch after another. Overall, he finished the year with 477 receiving yards on 32 receptions. He is a perfect depth player and could take on a major role if a starter goes down.
5. Dyami Brown
Dyami Brown entered the NFL Draft as an underrated player at his position. He spent three college seasons at UNC and shined by posting 2,306 receiving yard across 32 games played. He averaged an impressive 18.7 yards per catch and could have a chance to make an impact during his rookie season. He has the skills to be a menace in the red zone.
6. Steven Sims Jr.
7. DeAndre Carter
8. Antonio Gandy-Golden
9. Isaiah Wright
