It’s no question the hierarchy at wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints the past couple of seasons. It’s been Michael Thomas at the top, and then everyone else. This coming season, the Saints have a clear #2 wide receiver behind Thomas for the first time in a while in Emmanuel Sanders.
But after Thomas and Sanders, competition is wide open for the #3 receiver. So ignoring Pro Bowl tight end Jared Cook and former Rookie of the Year running back Alvin Kamara, who do you think will be the #3 wide receiver (or “pass catcher”) for the Saints in 2020?
Former Green Bay Packers RB/WR Ty Montgomery wants it to be him.

Saints wide receiver coach Ronald Curry thinks it could be former third-round pick Tre’Quan Smith.
NO WR Coach Ronald Curry: "when you’re drawing up the offense, first you’re going to think about Mike and then...(Jared) Cook and then...AK"— Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) June 17, 2020
on Tre'Quan Smith: "his improvement is going to be drastic and he’s going to have a breakout season. Y’all can write that down!” https://t.co/BmSpL4gjK4
What about potential quarterback-of-the-future Taysom Hill? Maybe 2019 All-Pro return specialist Deonte Harris? Maybe 2020 rookie tight end Adam Trautman? Will last year’s UDFA darling Emmanuel Butler finally step up?
So who do you think will be the Saints #3 receiver in 2020? You can define that however you’d like - Who ends up with the most receiving yards at the end of the season? Who ends up with the most catches? Who becomes the most-trusted target? Take it however you’d like, but vote in the poll.
