    The Vols lost a lot of experienced starters off their roster after the 2016 season came to a close. Gone are multi-year starters like Josh Dobbs, Jalen-Reeves Maybin, Derek Barnett, Cam Sutton, Josh Malone, Alvin Kamara, and Corey Vereen.

    Now Tennessee has some younger, talented players ready to step up. But just how experienced will the Vols be on offense and defense this year?

    The Vols’ offensive line is chock full of experience, but the rest of Tennessee’s offense? Not so much. And how about the defense? What unit is the most veteran part of the defense in 2017?

    Take a look at how many starts the Vols return at each position along with an analysis of each unit.
