Injuries have kept Tuttle from becoming the player many hoped he would be. When he’s been healthy, Tuttle has shown good play-making ability. But unfortunately for him, he’s been spending too much time either on the bench or rehabbing rather than actually getting to work on becoming stronger. This spring was the first time he’s been fully healthy since he was an early enrollee in 2015, and he’ll look to keep that health this season and thrive as Tennessee’s nose tackle in their 3-4 defense. If Tuttle can remain injury-free this season and improve his strength even more this offseason, he could make himself a draftable defensive tackle prospect in the NFL.
