Juniors Austin Cantrell and Cheyenne O'Grady, benefiting from a redshirt sea- son in 2015, are primed for big seasons. Cantrell is the sturdi- est blocker in the group, knows the drill and has good hands but not the open-field skills as his cohorts. O'Grady, who has a flair for spectacular catches, has improved on the blocking duties and on his maturity. He's a matchup problem for safeties and linebackers. Jeremy Patton's confidence has been oozing in camp. He suffered a bruised an- kle on Aug. 13, dodging a bullet. If he recovers as expected, the nation's No. 1 junior college tight end signee last year should blos- som. Grayson Gunter has put in work to catch up on upper body strength after labrum surgeries and has the potential to wreak havoc in the slot. Former full- back Hayden Johnson has physi- cal skills and showed pass-catch- ing prowess early in his career. NWA Democrat-Gazette/J.T. WAMPLER Austin Cantrell stretches to make a catch Aug. 6 during practice at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
