Wide Receiver 1: Malcom Floyd
The better half of San Diego's towering tandem at wide receiver has moved on to Tampa Bay, but Vincent Jackson's role as a jump ball specialist can be filled by Malcom Floyd.
The 6'5" Floyd has a great vertical leap, and he's been improving as a complete receiver for Philip Rivers. Floyd had 43 receptions for 856 yards and five touchdowns in 2011.
Wide Receiver 2: Robert Meachem
The pickup of former New Orleans Saints receiver Robert Meachem was huge after news of Jackson's exit from San Diego. Meachem caught six touchdown passes from Drew Brees despite the Saints' vast array of targets.
It will be interesting to see how San Diego uses Meachem, and whether or not he spreads the field like he did with New Orleans.
Wide Receiver 3/Slot Receiver/Punt Returner: Eddie Royal
Former Denver Bronco Eddie Royal is yet another great addition to a weak receiving corps. After receiving minimal attention in an offense dominated by Tim Tebow, Royal will more than likely get his fair share of touches with San Diego.
Royal should also prove useful in the slot, a role that was left by Patrick Crayton.
Fourth String: Vincent Brown
Vincent Brown shined in his rookie season catching 19 passes and two touchdowns. The former San Diego State Aztec should continue to develop and fit right in with San Diego's receiving corps.
Fifth String/Punt Returner: Roscoe Parrish
After two previous season plagued by wrist and ankle injuries, longtime Buffalo Bills receiver Roscoe Parrish will attempt to play his first full season since 2007. The speedy Parrish was primarily used as a slot receiver in Buffalo's offense, but it will be tough to win back that job with Royal above him.
Parrish will get some time here and there on offense, with most of his time being devoted to special teams. He is a skilled punt returner, but he could end up splitting that role with Royal as well.
Sixth String/Kick Returner: Richard Goodman
Richard Goodman's forte will be in the kick return game for sure. In just his second season, Goodman returned the majority of San Diego's kicks for nearly 1,000 yards and a 27.5-yard average.
Seventh String/Kick Returner: Michael Spurlock
Michael Spurlock's kick-return production sputtered last season after returning 44 kicks for 1,129 yards in 2010. The former Tampa Bay Buccaneer will compete with the less experienced Goodman for the kick returner job.
