Among the wide receivers listed on this slide, only a couple will be either on the 53-man roster or on the practice squad, while the rest are let go.
For these players, coaches will look to see how they do on special teams and eventually on offense, if given the chance.
Rico Richardson went undrafted, but has the ability to sneak into the 53-man roster. While prepping at Jackson State, Richardson finished last season with 1,158 receiving yards, the fifth most in school history.
In the six games he played, Jamar Newsome started in two games and came away with five catches for 73 yards. Under a new coaching staff, those numbers mean nothing. Newsome, who will enter his third year out of Central Florida, was activated last November while on the practice squad for most of the year.
Josh Bellamy spent his rookie season on the practice squad until December. He played in three games, but accumulated no statistics on offense. His minimal duties came on special teams as a returner.
Frankie Hammond had a very quiet senior season at Florida. His 22 receptions for 295 yards and three touchdowns is nothing notable. But like everyone else, he has a chance to make a name for himself in training camp
After being taken in the seventh round in the 2012 NFL draft from Michigan, Junior Hemingway did not play a game until late. When Copper was placed on injured reserve, the Chiefs let Hemingway play the final game of the season in Denver.
Tyler Shoemaker dominated his senior year at Boise State in 2011, when he led the team in yards with 994 and touchdowns with 16. However, that success did not translate into any success in the NFL. Shoemaker was picked up as an undrafted free agent by Tampa Bay last year, but didn't get a chance to play.
Mardy Gilyard was a two-time All-American while playing at Cincinnati, once as a kick returner and once a a wide receiver. But in the NFL, Gilyard has been a journeyman, joining five different franchises since being drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fourth round of the 2010 draft.
