    McKenzie has been unblockable, supposedly

    Jennings is still a wr

    The depth at cb is impressive

    Austin Smith has practiced well at DE

    Taylor is extremely quick off the edge

    Croom looks good running after his knee surgery

    Lots of guys missing spring practice due to minor "clean ups"

    Tuttle is in a walking boot

    I saw Croom was moved to TE.

    Osborne has impressed and Preston Williams is looking like he may be a superstar.

    Feels like he's been at UT for 10 years.

    RockyHill Loves Auburn more than Tennessee.

    Not for this coach.

    So we moved one of our top linebackers to DE. Again. Great decision, Colton Jumper's dad.

    If Jumper even sees the field I will have a stroke. I will never be mad or hate the young man. Everyone of us would run out there as fast as we can to be a Vol.

    But damn. If the coaches run him back out there again I will have to be committed.

    Based on everything I've read Shoop likes to use two smaller Will type LBs on the outside.

    He prefers to stay in the 4-3 a lot more so he wants LBs that cover well outside.

    I wouldn't be surprised, if another safety steps up, if they run a 4-2-5 type with Kelly in the box a lot too. It all depends on if another LB or another safety steps up in the spring and summer.

    Bates is perfect for this defense.

    John Brice said Preston Williams (aka The Resort) has really showed out.

    I think we will see McDowell at his Star position. Bates is another I expect to compete.

    Ouch. Jimmy Hyams saying the only linebackers playing well so far are Kirkland and JRM.

    Good to hear. Blocking on the outside should be top notch.

    Given the amount of time and the structure of practice right now. Meh

    That's not surprising

    I wonder if it everyone else is playing poorly or it has more to do with those two just being at elite levels.

    I'm guessing a little of both.

    Little of both for sure.

    How has Preston Williams' blocking mechanics looked? If good, he may see the field.
