 Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Outside Receiver: 1. Jauan Jennings, 2. Brandon Johnson
Outside Receiver: 1. Marquez Callaway, 2. Josh Palmer
Slot Receiver: 1. Tyler Byrd, 2. Latrell Williams
Tight End: 1. Ethan Wolf, 2. Jakob Johnson -or- Eli Wolf

Thoughts: Ethan Wolf and Jauan Jennings are the only surefire starters in this unit. The rest will be rotated a great deal, with possibly the exception of Tyler Byrd as well.

Brandon Johnson is likely the next in line for rotational work outside the main three receivers, and freshmah Josh Palmer has shown more during fall camp than senior Jeff George. But expect George to still take snaps, as well as freshman Jordan Murphy. Josh Smith is a long shot to play in this game, but he should be back sooner rather than later. Both Jakob Johnson and Eli Wolf should see time at the second tight end spot.
