Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Nathanael: A

Once again, Tennessee’s receivers didn’t have a single drop in the game, and they also helped create several big plays. There were some good routes being run, and Marquez Callaway once again proved to be Guarantano’s top target. He hauled in five receptions for 78 yards. Jauan Jennings only caught one pass, but he was effective blocking on the perimeter and down the field. Josh Palmer made a 51-yard grab and ran a 20-yard end-around in for a score. The only reason this unit doesn’t get an “A+” is because the tight ends still didn’t get involved in the passing game much. That unit did do a better job overall in blocking, though.

Ben: A+

The wide receivers get an A+ from me because for the second week they didn’t record a single drop and they showed the ability to make plays down the field. As good as the running backs have been through the first two games, I believe the wide receivers are the most impressive and talented group on the team. Marquez Callaway led the way with five catches for 78 yards, including an impressive catch on a 50-50 ball down the field. Jordan Murphy and Josh Palmer also showed why they can be relied upon to make plays. At tight end, I’d like to see offensive coordinator Tyson Helton utilize Dominick Wood-Anderson more. The JUCO transfer has just two catches through two games.
