1. DE Darrell Taylor
Taylor, a versatile four-star defensive end, has drawn the praise of coaches throughout the season for his work on scout team and his overall development, but also finds himself at a position group of strength and depth for the Vols. He came in around 230 pounds and may need to get closer to 250 to be ready for SEC reps. Defensive end is one spot the Vols can have some patience at, so expect Taylor to take this redshirt year to focus on bulking up and then have a shot at cracking the rotation in 2016 or 2017.
