This offseason, we’re going to do a Speak Up series looking at each position (o-line, d-line, etc).  Today, we’re looking at the wide receivers.

We want to know who you think should be the main three wide receivers in Denver this season.  Should the team value veteran experience, or youthful potential?

Returning:  Matt Willis, Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas, Mark Dell, D’Andre Goodwin, Tyler Grisham and Greg Orton.

Acquired:  Andre Caldwell, Brandon Stokley, Eric Page, Gerell Robinson and Jason Hill.

Heading into training camp, Decker and Thomas are the presumed top two receivers on the roster.  That leaves ten other receivers fighting for three remaining positions.

The top candidates to land the No. 3 spot appear to be Caldwell, Willis and Hill with Stokley a slot option and Page a return specialist.  The team will have to make some hard decisions when they cut down to the final 54.

What’s your take?  Should an aging Stokley make the team over players like Dell, Goodwin, Orton and Hill?  Should Caldwell be the No. 3 receiver?

Dish out your thoughts in the comments and vote in the poll after the jump! 

Who should be the WRs behind Decker/Thomas?

    Thomas should be 3rd until he learns more than one route..

    Denver will carry 6 WR’s this season. (Thomas, Decker, Stokley, Willis, Caldwell, Page)

    I really have no idea since I haven’t observed them daily in OTAs and minicamp and won’t be doing so in TC. I do know Stokley still has his quickness, according to reports, that he’s the best route runner of the bunch (which is especially important in the slot), and he knows Peyton the most.

    Caldwell, however, also has quickness and speed galore. He would always be a threat to break out of the slant or flat and do a fly. And Burger Bill, who did attend minicamp, said he expects Caldwell to break out.

    I see them reserving Page for return duties, where he excels, if he makes the team, which I would suspect he will for that reason.

    In short, I have no clue . . .

    in short? LOL!

    I think Thomas and Caldwell are 1-2, then Decker and Stokely will be 3-4. Decker still has cement blocks for hands, so until he gets over that…he can’t possibly crack the starting spot.

    I also like that kid we picked up out of AZ State. Then Hillis and Page. It’s going to be tough carrying 7 WR, but I think Julius Thomas may be the guy we cut ties with after TC.

    I’ve been waiting what seems like an eternity for Willis to step up and be a force to be reckoned with. I’m hoping that Manning can bring that out in him.

  • DougEngland

    If he doesn’t make the final roster, I’d at least like to see Gerell Robinson on the practice squad. I just have a feeling that guy has a lot of potential.

    Seeing all these weapons for manning in one sentence, I have to admit, is pretty exciting, AND we have a run game. Our foes won’t know what hit ’em.

  • Steve Smith

    Decker may end up the most productive target for Manning, and you have him number 3 behind Caldwell???

  • Doom92

    I agree… You always say decker has these bricks for hands and yet there are just as many great moments thus far for him as not. Hmmm that sounds alot like Thomas as well. Manning will make them both great as he has for others, least I hope so. If he had these bricks you always talk of Tim he wouldn’t even make the team :-…
