A name that is quickly forgotten about on this roster, Anthony Miller isn’t just in the race to make the roster at receiver; he could realistically start in the slot in week one. He has experience and pedigree there, and frankly, there aren’t many options besides him to fill in. That said, the receiver room has quite a bit of competition as of this writing.
The top four spots are set with both the starters and the two rookies. While certainly not a lock, Gunner Olszewski is a special teams player and returner and seems like a safe bet to make the roster. That leaves one spot left (potentially) for a receiver to take. Miles Boykin can certainly make a claim to that role given his past production.
Miller needs to make a positive impact early. The team can pencil him in to start in the slot sooner than later if he does. Add in his former connection with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and there is little reason that Miller shouldn’t be noticed early. In a crowded room, he will need to find a way to stick out early in training camp.
