Dallas' latest No. 88 had a career season in 2012, boasting 1,382 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Dez Bryant was drafted to become the Cowboys' No. 1 receiver eventually, and he has firmly planted himself in that role.
While he no longer sits atop the Dallas receivers' depth chart, Miles Austin fits better as the team's No. 2 option. Austin did not miss any games last year, and he has to continue that streak. He has gathered a reputation for being an injury-prone player.
If he can stay on the field, he has a solid chance of cracking the 1,000-yard mark in 2013.
The Baylor product had a stellar final year in college, tallying 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns. His senior year likely helped the Cowboys feel confident enough to take him in the third round of this year's draft. It would be difficult to imagine that Terrance Williams' high draft selection didn't secure him the No. 3 receiver job.
Unless he has a dreadful training camp, the No. 3 spot is his.
Dwayne Harris had a decent 2012 season in a limited role with 17 receptions for 222 yards and a touchdown. He also has added value in the return game for Dallas. Out of all the receivers fighting for the fourth spot on the roster, Harris has the best chance.
He has more than a few other names to beat out for the job, but he has very high odds of staying in Dallas.
The 2012 fifth-round pick not only has to prove his skills but prove he is fully recovered from his ACL tear last December. Danny Coale has the advantage of being a recent mid-round pick that Dallas likely wants to give a chance to shine.
That being said, the team has enough injury-prone players to worry about. The injuries from last year are certainly in the back of the Dallas coaching staff's mind.
For an undrafted free agent who didn't see a ton of playing time, Cole Beasley did just fine in 2012. Tony Romo targeted the SMU product 24 times, and he caught 15 of those for 128 yards.
Beasley has some promise and has shown some reliable hands in his few chances on the field. He'll have to battle Coale and others for the fifth receiver job, but he has a solid chance to grab that job.
Anthony Armstrong is 30 years old and has just 51 catches in his career in the NFL. He did burst onto the pro scene in his rookie year with a 871-yard season with Washington. Since then, however, Armstrong has not been able to get back to that level.
Unlike some other names looking to grab a final roster spot, Armstrong has had success in this league, but it didn't last long. His age is working against him in this roster spot battle, and his chances are bleak.
One of this year's undrafted free-agent signings, Eric Rogers was nothing short of historic at his college. The California Lutheran product finished as the college's all-time leader in touchdowns with 45. In his senior year, he posted 61 catches, 868 yards and 15 trips to the end zone.
He'll have a tough time making the Dallas roster, however, with Armstrong, Beasley and Coale also looking to impress.
Son of Washington Redskins Hall of Famer Darrell Green, Jared does not have a high chance of making the Dallas roster. Before transferring to Southern University in 2011, Green had under 400 yards through three seasons at Virginia.
Even if the Cowboys carried six receivers on the roster, it would take a heck of a performance for him to make the team.
Tim Benford was with the Cowboys last offseason but couldn't make the squad even with Coale missing time due to injury and Kevin Ogletree's poor play. The wide receiver camp battle is much fiercer this year than last.
Benford will not be able to best Beasley or Coale or even Armstrong.
