A.J. Green (No. 18)
Undoubtedly the most talented wide receiver on the Bengals roster—and possibly in the NFL in general—Green will return as the top target for Dalton once again in 2013. He will look to continue to lead by example throughout training camp, and put up monster numbers on Sundays.
Mohamed Sanu (No. 12)
Sanu could possibly be the Bengals' most versatile wide receiver on the roster. He can play both outside positions, the slot and can line up in the backfield. Sanu may not be labeled as the No. 2 wide receiver on the roster, but he will see the majority of playing time after Green.
Marvin Jones (No. 82)
Jones could very well end up being the No. 2 wide receiver on the Bengals roster this season. He has great speed, and is capable of stretching the field opposite Green. Jones built solid chemistry with Dalton toward the end of 2012 and will look to continue that during training camp this year.
Andrew Hawkins (No. 16)
Hawkins will continue to be the shifty, slot receiver to whom Gruden and Co. will try to feed the ball when he is in space. One of the most elusive players on the Bengals' roster, Hawkins will continue to play a large role both on offense and on special teams.
Cobi Hamilton (No. 87)
Hamilton has been one of the biggest surprises during offseason activities this year. He impressed the coaching staff during rookie minicamp and OTAs. If he can keep up his stellar play throughout training camp and the preseason, he could very well find his way onto the active roster.
Brandon Tate (No. 19)
Tate is not one of the most popular receivers on the Bengals' roster due to his poor decisions as a return specialist; however, there may not be a better option on the team right now. His return skills (or lack thereof) could be enough to keep him with the team in 2013.
Ryan Whalen (No. 88)
Whalen does not get much press, although he is one of the most reliable wide receivers on the roster. He has solid hands and is one of the best route-runners at wide receiver. He has not been utilized many times on the Bengals offense, but has flashed his reliability when given an opportunity.
Dane Sanzenbacher (No. 11)
Sanzenbacher was claimed off waivers by Cincinnati after his departure from Chicago last season. He will be a long shot to make the roster as a slot receiver. However, if he can impress during training camp he could leapfrog a few receivers on this roster.
Roy Roundtree (No. 86)
An undrafted free agent, Roundtree has an uphill battle to make this roster. He has shown some flashes during offseason workouts so far, but needs to show much more if he wants to stick on this roster. He could be a prime candidate for the practice squad this year.
Tyrone Goard (No. 17)
Like Roundtree, Goard has a long way to go if he intends to make the final roster. Also, like Roundtree, he went undrafted and could be a great candidate for the 2013 practice squad to continue his development.
Taveon Rogers (No. 83)
Rogers has been bouncing back and forth between cornerback and wide receiver. He is back at wide receiver for 2013 and virtually has no chance at making the roster. His best bet will be to stick around on the practice squad to hone his craft.
