PFF Grades: Missouri At Tennessee

Photo By Avery Bane/Tennessee Athletics

Tennessee bounced back from its lone loss this season by blowing out Missouri, 66-24, on Senior Day at Neyland Stadium.

Self inflicted mistakes allowed Missouri to pull within four points of Tennessee early in the third quarter before the Vols scored the game’s final 38 points.

If you need a reminder on how Pro Football Focus works, read the opening of the Ball State grades.

Let’s see how the Vols graded out.

Elite grade = 90-100, All-Conference = 85-89, Starter = 70-84, Backup = 60-69, Replaceable = 60 >

Offensive Grades (minimum of 23 plays — 30% of offensive plays)

QB Hendon Hooker — 89.9 (73 plays)

WR Bru McCoy — 72.7 (74 plays)

RB Jaylen Wright — 71.7 (24 plays)

WR Jalin Hyatt — 70.7 (61 plays)

C Cooper Mays — 61.9 (75 plays)

TE Princeton Fant — 61.8 (36 plays)

RB Jabari Small — 59.6 (37 plays)

WR Ramel Keyton — 59.2 (75 plays)

RT Darnell Wright — 58.5 (75 plays)

LT Gerald Mincey — 57.3 (34 plays)

LG Jerome Carvin — 54.1 (75 plays)

RG Javontez Spraggins — 53.2 (75 plays)

TE Jacob Warren — 51.1 (44 plays)

LT Jeremiah Crawford — 40.5 (46 plays)

Here’s the grades of three Vols who played well but didn’t reach 23 snaps: Joe Milton earned a 94.2 grade in seven plays, Dylan Sampson earned a 75.5 grade in 19 plays and Squirrel White earned a 71.3 grade in 15 plays.

After his worst performance as a Vol, Hendon Hooker bounced back with a stellar performance. After a couple early game missteps, Hooker was nearly perfect earning an All-Conference grade.

Besides Cooper Mays, it was a tough day for Tennessee’s offensive line. I wish I could see the half-by-half grades because Tennessee’s offensive line looked like the strong group we’ve seen all year for much of the second half.

Tyler Baron turned in at least his best game since Pitt week two and perhaps his best game as a Vol. Baron had four tackles for a loss and a sack in the win.

Senior Solon Page III played perhaps his best college game earning a 78.7 grade. Behind Page, Tennessee’s linebacker struggled. Juwan Mitchell and Jeremy Banks graded out as the two worst Tennessee defenders.

Safeties Jaylen McCollough and Trevon Flowers graded out better than I would have expected but still neither had great afternoons.
