Thoughts: The Vols lost just about every major contributor on special teams after the 2017 season. Trevor Daniel, Aaron Medley, and Evan Berry have all graduated. That means Tennessee’s special teams are majorly in flux. Brent Cimaglia is the only scholarship kicker on roster, and kicking duties will likely fall to him. Paxton Brooks is an early enrollee and will compete with a handful of walk-ons at punter.

The Vols’ return units are a complete mystery. Ty Chandler has the most experience as a kick returner, but if he’s the starting running back he may not be the main kick returner. Tyler Byrd has experience there as well. Marquez Callaway was the primary punt returner last season, but early enrollee Alontae Taylor could e a name to watch there too.
