Last offseason, general manager Phil Emery was finally able to give Jay Cutler the star wide receiver he so desperately needed. While Brandon Marshall put up spectacular numbers, the rest of the wide receiver corps struggled with their production and their health.
Marshall along with Alshon Jeffery, Earl Bennett, Eric Weems and seventh-round draft Marquess Wilson are expected to be the main contributors at the position, but the team could still be searching for a speedy wide receiver who can play the slot and also help spread the ball down field.
While at Iowa State, Josh Lenz did not have the greatest of numbers, hauling in 104 catches for 1,325 yards and 10 touchdowns in four seasons. But considering the lack of production at the quarterback position, Lenz could have a lot of untapped potential.
He was impressive at Iowa State's pro day, running an unofficial 4.35 40-yard dash time (h/t Ames Tribune), which helped garner the attention of many scouts who were likely only in attendance for linebacker A.J. Klein's workout.
Lenz has good hands and has shifty quickness but is not the most explosive runner off the snap. His good hands and route-running ability could push him into a sixth wide receiver role. He could see some snaps in the slot if he can build a rapport with Cutler in training camp.
