Grizzly Football Preview – Wide Receiver

Just 4 positional previews remain in my breakdown of this year’s University of Montana football team.

Today, I’ll look at the wide receivers. In addition to wide receivers, there are also slot receivers. Wide receivers line up closer to the sidelines, while slot receivers line up closer to the offensive line. The Grizzlies have a number of players that can play both inside and outside:

C.J. Atkins, Sr.
Antwon Moutra, Sr.
Jabin Sambrano, Sr.
Bryce Carver, Jr.
Sam Gratton, Jr.
Archie Woulard, Jr.
Aaron Roberts, So.
Cam Warren, So.
Kevin Berland, Fr.
Sean Haynes, Fr.
Brandon Maguire, Fr.
Mitch Saylor, Fr.


PLAYER TO WATCH: Antwon Moutra

SLEEPER: Archie Woulard

FUTURE STAR: Mitch Saylor

The Grizzlies return all three starters from a year ago. Jabin Sambrano and Antwon Moutra will once again man the wide receiver positions, while Sam Gratton will play in the slot. Behind those three, C.J. Atkins and Bryce Carver saw a lot of time last year and will figure heavily into the offense. One sleeper could by junior college transfer Archie Woulard, who possesses a great amount of athleticism. Redshirt freshman Mitch Saylor is a player that coach Robin Pflugrad has raved about, and along with Cam Warren, Kevin Berland, Sean Haynes and Brandon Maguire provide a rosy future at the position. Aaron Roberts has been very injury-prone in his 2-plus years on campus, and could be great too if he can stay on the field.

Also worth noting, both senior Trumaine Johnson and freshman Josh Dennard are listed as wide receivers on the roster, but will mostly play defense this year. But with coach Pflugrad’s offense, you just never know.
