2015

2014

Andrew Luck's familiarity with Whalen from their Stanford days got the receiver some snaps last season, but with Reggie Wayne back, Hakeem Nicks in town and second round pick Donte Moncrief joining the roster, Whalen could have a hard time just keeping a spot on the roster.

2013

Whalen played with Andrew Luck and was Stanford's leading receiver in their final season together. Whalen then missed all of 2012 with a foot injury. Whalen could win a role on the offense this season, but he may not have the speed to make a significant impact. However, his good hands and rapport with Luck.

2012

Whalen, an undrafted free agent, was Stanford's leading receiver last season with 749 yards. He's got good hands, but faces an uphill battle for a roster spot. Still, he has an advantage having been Andrew Luck's teammate.
