Top 50 Mountain West players: Wyoming WR Tanner Gentry is 43rd

New, 1 comment

The Wyoming wide receiver could have a big year, but it depends on who is throwing the ball.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 version of the Mountain West Connection top 50 football players countdown is finally here and the 43rd player is Wyoming wide receiver Tanner Gentry.

Gentry does have injury concern as he missed the last half of last year with a shoulder injury but he has potential. Before he was injured, Gentry had three games with over 100 yards receiving and was averaging 18.32 yards per catch. Having one of the best backs in the country like Brian Hill can certainly help Gentry in the passing game when the Cowboys run play-action. Expect that per yard average to be very high this year.

Here are the staff picks and composite rankings.
