I'm thinking that Gentry may not make it to the practice squad, if the team tries to stash him there...  Braverman had a lot of hype last year, but no one ever saw it outside of practice, and there wasn't quite as much buzz....

Gentry is reportedly making plays no matter what defensive unit he's lined up against, and there has been actual film clips from camp of him making those plays.... I'd add, even in an extremely limited showing last Thursday vs Denver (where he registered a single catch that I saw), he still has shown more on an actual field than Braverman has. Finally, the biggest difference maker to me, is that while last year people where saying Braverman might have a roster spot, I've seen some reports claiming Gentry to be our best actual receiver over the course of camp....

Like Trubisky, Gentry I think is a priority player that we need to see move up the depth chart in preseason in order to get some film vs higher level competition.

Agreed.  I have seen online reports saying he has been real good in camp, ditto from Hoge and Jahns podcasts. Waddle and Silvy saw him stand out and make plays when they were down there and many tweets from people attending practices saying same.  I have seen some highlight clips.  He got one target in pre season and made it count.  

All you can do is make plays in practice at any level.  If coaches want to go with 'experience' nothing you can do.  Like to see an underdog make good.  Makes game more fun.
