Sean Brown, TE
When you aren’t on a depth chart that lists off five players at your position, chances are you won’t see the field except on special teams. That looks to be the case for Sean Brown.
Dominick Wood-Anderson is the undoubted starter at tight end for the Vols, and both Austin Pope and Andrew Craig figure to be battling for the main backup role. Princeton Fant is a good blocking option, and Jacob Warren looks to have a lot of pass catching skills that could be utilized in certain packages. Fellow true freshman Jackson Lowe has a leg up on Brown because he enrolled early in the spring, and he’s flashed some impressive skills.
All of that makes it look like Brown is destined for a redshirt in his first year with the Vols. Unless he impresses in practice as the weeks go on or Tennessee suffers injuries at tight end, look for Brown to appear in four or fewer games this season.
