College Football News Preview 2020: Top Tennessee Volunteers Players

Best Tennessee Volunteers Offensive Player

OG Trey Smith, Sr.
It’s been an interesting run. The 6-6, 335-pounder was seen as a prototype left tackle with the right size and skills to be special, but just as he was coming off a great freshman season and turned it into a good sophomore campaign, he had to take a timeout due to health issues.

The scary blood clotting problem was fixed, he came back for his junior year, and he turned into a killer of a left guard. Back for one more year, he should be a first round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft if he can maintain his elite level.

3. WR Josh Palmer, Sr.
4. PK Brent Cimaglia, Sr.
5. QB Jarrett Guarantano, Sr.

Best Tennessee Volunteers Defensive Player

LB Henry To’o To’o, Soph.
A good recruit out of California, the hope was that he’d step in and be a good part of the rotation early on. Instead, he rose up into a star and a major factor finishing second on the team with 72 tackles with five tackles for loss.

The 6-2, 235-pounder was stead from the start and kept on producing, coming up with seven tackles or more eight times. Watch out for him to turn into an even more dangerous pass rusher.

5. DE Darel Middleton, Sr.
