    10. Jashon Robertson

    Coleman Thomas Jashon Robertson

    As part of the massive 2014 recruiting class, Jashon Robertson was largely overlooked as a three-star offensive guard out of Nashville. But Robertson’s impact on the Vols was felt almost immediately, as he came in and impressed coaches enough in the fall to steal a starting spot on the offensive line as a freshman.

    Robertson became the first UT player since Ja’Wuan James in 2010 to start as a true freshman on the offensive line. He started all 13 games that season, earning Freshman All-SEC and Freshman All-American honors in doing so. Robertson was hampered by injuries in 2015 but still started all 10 games in which he played and was part of the reason the Vols were able to rush for 2,908 yards, the second-highest total in school history.
