Which receiver will emerge as the true No. 1?

The passing offense in 2022 seemed more balanced, with three players having 30+ receptions. Johnny Wilson led the team in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. That balance changed in 2023 with the addition of Keon Coleman. Coleman led the team with 50 receptions in 12 games, but Johnny Wilson had nearly as many receiving yards(617) in two fewer games. However, when it came to scoring touchdowns, Coleman was the guy with 11. Who will be the guy to step up as the goto guy? Will it be one of the veteran guys? Will Malik Benson step into that role in his money year?

Hykeem Williams and Destyn Hill looked promising before injuries derailed their freshman seasons. Could the offense look closer to the 2022 season with multiple guys as threats in the passing game? It'll depend on how quickly Benson can learn the offense and form a rapport with likely starter, DJ Uiagalelei. However, I don't think he transferred for his final season to be a role player. He has elite speed and an NFL body, so he'll be who I'll be watching the most in spring camp. However, the young guys have a shot at making some noise.
