NT: 1. Shy Tuttle 2. Alexis Johnson 3. Quay Picou
DE: 1. Jonathan Kongbo 2. Ryan Thaxton

Thoughts: The Vols will typically play a 3-4 defense, which means they’ll employ two ends and a nose tackle. There’s still a good chance you’ll see Tennessee in a 4-3 set in a lot of games, so this depth chart is subject to change depending on the formation. But as it stands in Tennessee’s base 3-4, Shy Tuttle looks to be the favorite to start at nose tackle. The ends, however, are completely up in the air. With so many ends possibly moving to outside linebacker, it remains to be seen who will be available at end. These are our best guesses right now.
