1. K’Rojhn Calbert
Wanya Morris’ and Jahmir Johnson’s decisions to transfer to the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas A&M Aggies respectively left this position wide open for Tennessee football. The Vols did add four offensive linemen on the recruiting trail, but luckily for Josh Heupel, there are guys on the roster who have played at a high level in the past.
K’Rojhn Calbert is the most proven at this level. In 2019, he split time starting with Darnell Wright at right tackle, and the 6’5″ 325-pound redshirt junior has appeared in 32 games over the past three years. His experience and production make him the best candidate to fill this void right now.
2. Dayne Davis
Never underestimate walk-ons, especially when a program is undergoing as much transition as the Vols underwent this past year. Dayne Davis took advantage of the situation and thrived in spring practice, earning multiple shoutouts from the coaching staff.
This comes after Davis was put on full scholarship back in December, when Jeremy Pruitt was really running the show. The 6’7″ 325-pound redshirt sophomore has no experience in actual college games, and that’s why we project him as a backup, but he’s a developing talent for UT and has done enough to earn his way into the left tackle rotation.
