With spring practice set to get underway on Tuesday, it’s time to take our best guess at what the depth chart will look like as the Jeremy Pruitt era is set to begin for Tennessee.
A lot will change between now and fall camp. Newcomers will arrive, spring practice will shake things up, and the dreaded injury bug could have its say in things as well. But it’s still interesting to take an early look at what could happen with the Vols’ roster under a new regime.
The Vols will be implementing a new defensive scheme as they switch from a base 4-3 or 4-2-5 and move more towards a 3-4 scheme. The offense won’t be undergoing as radical of a change, but they’re still expected to be more pro-style this year than last year.
There’s bound to be some more position changes and attrition along the way, but we’ll take an early crack at what some of these positions might look like, with the caveat that this is certainly subject to change over the next six months. We’ll go two-deep at most spots, but may expand or contract if needed.
