1. Nigel Warrior will be a special teams powerhouse
In terms of immediate impact, the newcomers will have to compete with the veteran cast that Butch Jones has put together over the past few years. But special teams is a breeding ground for young guys looking to prove themselves, and it’s a perfect mold for Nigel Warrior. Son of former Vol Dale Carter, Warrior has the speed and aggressiveness to dominate kickoffs, punts, etc. Given a year or two to train under Kelly, Gaulden, and others, Warrior will one day live up to the name on his back.
