OT: Marcus Tatum, Wanya Morris, Nathan Niehaus, Chris Akporoghene
OG: Ryan Johnson, Jahmir Johnson, K’Rojhn Calbert, Jerome Carvin
C: Brandon Kennedy, Ryan Johnson, Jerome Carvin

Along with linebacker and defensive line, the offensive line has the chance to change the most between now and the fall.

Right now, it looks like the starting five could be Wanya Morris, Ryan Johnson, Brandon Kennedy, Jahmir Johnson, and Marcus Tatum. But any number of those positions could change, especially with Darnell Wright coming over the summer.

Nathan Niehaus and K’Rojhn Calbert were two of the more impressive offensive linemen for the Vols this spring, and both could definitely challenge for playing time and starting spots. Jerome Carvin started a lot last season, and he figures to give Kennedy and both starting guards a run for their money.

  1. Old born and bred Volunteer from the 60’s. Some of you guys are so blind. You talk about JG being in command and being consistent. When in his entire career has he been consistent in 21 starts ??? Two anomalies jump out, Kentucky and Auburn and 5 wins against nobodies from no where, 13 losses. But that is past, so the O & W game last Sat. JG looked bad for the first half and got it together in the second. But if you slow the tape, and depend on a whistle, he was sacked for a loss twice when he ran for yardage. He threw some great touch passes and he threw some horrible ones. Yes, he does not turn the ball over and is tough, wow. And that is the main deal. We can stay reserved and conservatively vanilla or give someone new a shot. JG is no manager, cannot adjust, cannot read. But he has had 4 OC’s and that is not his fault. The point I am trying to make to you guys is tell the entire picture. Not some lopsided one. And the two things you accused Shrout and Maurer of, inconsistency and awful throws. That is JG’s description to a T. I want JG in the Vol Hall of Fame one day. but he is so far over his head. We need a manager who can SPREAD the ball to the talent available, JENNINGS, Callaway, Woods-Anderson, etc…..
