Cameron Sutton Signs Rookie Contract with the Steelers

Cameron Sutton Signs Rookie Contract with the Steelers

He should be an impact player for the Steelers. Third round pick and former Tennessee Volunteer Cam Sutton has signed his rookie contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Sutton was selected on day two of the NFL Draft in the third round, 94th overall. It’s a four year deal for Sutton. Sutton was a four year starter at Tennessee and a foundational piece of the defensive unit. He holds the Tennessee record with 37 passes defensed. The Vols have big shoes to fill trying to replace him this season. “I’m a guy who’s about his business and just ready to get to work. I’m definitely...

2017 Impact Players - John Kelly

2017 Impact Players - John Kelly

It’s Kelly’s turn to carry the load in the backfield. John Kelly is entering his junior season at Tennessee, and he figures to earn the most significant playing time of his career this fall. Kelly has showed flashes of brilliances in limited action in his first two years. And with the departures of Jalen Hurd and Alvin Kamara, 2017 is going to be Kelly’s time to shine. Kelly joined the Vols as a member of the 2015 recruiting class out of Oak Park, Mich., ranked as a three-star prospect - #537 overall - by the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He had several other Power 5 offers, including...

2017 Tennessee Football: Projecting the Depth Chart on Offense

2017 Tennessee Football: Projecting the Depth Chart on Offense

A look at the potential depth chart for 2017. It’s a new era of Tennessee offense — both personnel wise and coordinator wise. Larry Scott will take charge of the unit after the departure of Mike DeBord. The depth chart is getting a totally new look as Josh Dobbs, Alvin Kamara and Josh Malone have moved on to the NFL. There may be some bumps in the road early on as the Vols adjust, but it should be fun to watch some fresh faces compete. Let’s take a look at how I think the depth chart will shake out. Quarterback Quinten Dormady Jarrett Guarantano Will McBride I think Dormady took a...

Tennessee Positional Preview: Running Backs

Tennessee Positional Preview: Running Backs

Welcome to the John Kelly show. After coming into 2016 loaded at the position, running back is in a very different looking spot heading into the 2017 season. It’s gone from a position of strength with Jalen Hurd and Alvin Kamara, to a bit of a question mark. Tennessee will have junior back John Kelly return, but after that it’s a guessing game at this point. Kelly received a bump in work after Hurd left the program in the middle of last season, showing impressive balance and tenacity between the tackles. He and Alvin Kamara actually formed one of the better duos in the SEC late last...

Eagles Lane Johnson Praises Derek Barnett at OTAs

Eagles Lane Johnson Praises Derek Barnett at OTAs

The Tennessee product is already impressing. As the Eagles roll through OTAs this summer, rookie first round pick Derek Barnett is already starting to show why he was picked so high. Tennessee fans already know this — all Barnett did was produce as a Vol, breaking Reggie White’s sack record in the process. Barnett was picked apart in the draft process. Analysts were concerned with his athletic ability, length and upside. Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson is seeing why we all laughed at those concerns. “He [Barnett] did good," Johnson said. "He got me a couple times today. I sat...

Tennessee Picked 3rd in SEC East by Athlon Sports

Tennessee Picked 3rd in SEC East by Athlon Sports

Athlon is projecting a similar 2017 season for the Vols. Athlon Sports released their SEC preview this week, filled with predictions for the upcoming football season. They have the Vols slotted for 3rd in the SEC East, predicting a 8-4 record overall and a 4-4 record in the SEC. That’s a pretty realistic scenario. It would mean that Tennessee takes the season opener against Georgia Tech, but drops four conference games — likely Alabama, LSU, Georgia and Florida. Those games will all likely feature the Vols as underdogs. Tennessee certainly could win any of those games outside of...

Who is going to be Tennessee’s Breakout Player in 2017?

Who is going to be Tennessee’s Breakout Player in 2017?

There are plenty of options. With so much talent exiting after the 2016 season, Tennessee and Butch Jones are going to need several players to step up and grow into their new roles. Naturally, new leaders and producers will emerge. Who will it be this season? SEC Country believes it will be Jonathan Kongbo. Kongbo was the No. 1 junior college recruit in the nation. In his first year on Rocky Top, he did not play like it. While dealing with issues adjusting to campus, Tennessee kept him out for large chunks of games. However, with several of the key play makers from 2016 gone, Kongbo will...
