Marques Colston (No. 12)
Few receivers in the game are as underrated as Colston, who has produced at least 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in six of his seven NFL seasons. He's now 30 years old, and there have been problems with his knees in the past, but Colston should be a solid lock for another 80-catch, 1,000-yard season. He remains Drew Brees' favorite target.
Lance Moore (No. 16)
Quietly, Moore recorded his first 1,000-yard season of his career in 2012. He caught 65 passes and finished with six scores, which pushed his three-year totals to 183 and 22. The soon-to-be 30-year-old Moore might not repeat a 16-yard average in 2013, but he figures to be a consistent option. His only season under 50 catches since 2008 was an injury-shortened year in 2009.
Courtney Roby (No. 15)
Roby has just two catches since arriving in offensively rich New Orleans in 2008, but he's stuck around via his efforts on special teams. If he's on the roster again in 2013, Roby's role as a special teams ace should remain unchanged.
Chris Givens (No. 17)
At 6'2" and 211 pounds, Givens has impressive size. As a possession receiver only, he could push to eventually become Colston's replacement. He'll need to beat out a bunch of other receivers first.
Joseph Morgan (No. 13)
Morgan caught just 10 balls his first season with the Saints, but produced 379 yards and a score. He's the Saints' best vertical threat, but he'll need to improve as an all-around receiver to lock up the No. 3 job. His roster spot should be secure.
Kenny Stills (No. 84)
A fifth-round pick from Oklahoma (where passing is as prevalent as it is in New Orleans), Stills has a chance to be a first-year contributor. He posted big numbers for the Sooners, in large part to his quickness and separation skills. He should stick, but a poor camp could bury him on the depth chart.
Nick Toon (No. 88)
Toon, a fourth-round pick last April, missed the entire 2012 season with a foot injury. Staying on the field has been his biggest problem, but at 6'2" and 215 pounds, Toon reminds some of a young Colston. Another injury in camp could put him on the roster bubble.
Jarred Fayson (No. 11)
After going undrafted out of Illinois, Fayson spent the 2012 season on the practice squads of New England and New Orleans. He might need an injury to secure a roster spot in camp, but the practice squad isn't out of the question.
Preston Parker (No. 87)
Parker caught 40 passes for 554 yards and three scores with the Buccaneers in 2011, but he hasn't hauled in a reception since. Experience returning kicks and punts could help him, but Parker is already 26 years old.
Andy Tanner (No. 14)
The 25-year-old from Midwestern State lacks size at 6'0" and 183 pounds. A member of the practice squad during each of the last three seasons, Tanner is running out of time to make the 53-man roster.
Saalim Hakim (No. 18)
Hakim, who spent the final two games of 2012 on the active roster, is the younger brother of former Rams receiver Az-Zahir Hakim. He has great speed but lacks football experience. He'll need some splash plays during the preseason to have a chance.
Brent Leonard (No. 86)
The undrafted free agent from Louisiana-Monroe caught over 100 passes his senior season. He's 6'2" but a thin 186 pounds, making him a long shot to crack the roster.
