This is by far the most wide-open contest in camp.
Behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, there isn't much experience, but there is a glut of young wideouts.
Kevin Ogletree is the veteran of the group competing for the third receiver slot, but he hasn't exactly lit up the NFL in his three years with the Cowboys—he only has 25 career receptions.
However, compared to the other skill players competing for these slots, he's a savvy, battle-hardened vet.
That's because a huge group of first- and second-year players are sitting behind him, including Dwayne Harris, Andre Holmes, Raymond Radway, Danny Coale, Tim Benford and Cole Beasley.
Coale was the Cowboys' fifth-round pick, but he's been out all of camp due to injury.
Harris and Radway have each gone through the exhibition season with Dallas before, but both have been inconsistent thus far. And neither made much of an impact against Oakland.
However, Beasley and Holmes have impressed throughout camp.
Beasley has looked great in practice, working in the slot and returning punts. Holmes has looked good as well, and his athletic 6’5” frame has intrigued many.
In addition, both played very well in the preseason opener.
Homes had three receptions for 40 yards and made a few really impressive catches. Beasley looked solid too. He was good in the return game and looked at home in the slot.
If the season started right now, it would likely be Ogletree, Holmes and Beasley making the roster at receiver, in that order.
But, there is still a lot of camp to go.
