NFL.com predicted that Leonard Hankerson would win the Buffalo Bills' third wide receiver competition.

Hankerson may be the most established player vying for the job.

The Buffalo Bills know that their starting wide receiver duo will be Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. After that? No one really knows. Buffalo has 11 wide receivers, in addition to Watkins and Woods, on the roster who will be competing for wide receiver jobs. Buffalo will likely carry six to seven wide receivers on their roster as they enter the 2016 season. 

Among all of their current wide receivers, who is the favorite to win the job? Leonard Hankerson was the predicted pick made by NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal. The Around the NFL editor projected each team's starting lineups and has Hankerson as the team's No. 3 wide receiver.

Hankerson may have the inside track at the job as he's arguably the most established wide receiver of the group competing for the spot. The veteran is coming off of a 2015 season that saw him catch 26 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns in eight games played with the Atlanta Falcons. In his career, Hankerson has recorded 107 receptions for 1,408 yards and nine touchdowns.

Hankerson's competition for the job will include the likes of Greg Salas, Jarrett Boykin, Greg Little, Dezmin Lewis, Marquise Goodwin, and Kolby Listenbee. Andre Roberts, a free agent currently visiting the Bills, could also compete for the role.
