Tennessee Schedule & Analysis

Hendon Hooker, QB Sr.

The 6-4, 218-pound veteran was better than he was ever recognized at Virginia Tech. He completed 63% of his passes for 2,894 yards and 22 touchdowns with seven picks, rushed for 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns and made a slew of big plays in two seasons.

He didn’t get the job straight away in Tennessee — former Michigan transfer Joe Milton got the nod early — but he took over and was great, hitting 68% of his passes averaging 9.7 yards per attempt with 31 touchdowns and just three picks . He also rushed for 616 yards and five points.

Darnell Wright, OT Sr.

6-6, 335. A great five-star recruit who started right tackle right away, stayed in position in 2020, switched to left tackle and started every game, and now he could switch back to right. No matter where he plays, he’ll be a good pro for the 2023 NFL Draft.

Cedric Tillman, WR Sr.

6-3, 215. 72 catches, 1,205 yards (16.7 YPC), 14 TD in four seasons.

Jeremy Banks, LB Sr.

6-1, 224. 166 tackles (128 last season), 5.5 sacks, 13.5 TFL, 3 INT, 6 aborted passes, 185 rushing yards, 3 TD in four seasons.

Byron Young, DESr.

6-3, 245. 46 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 11.5 TFL, 1 INT, 2 broken passes in the last year.

Aaron Beasley, LB Sr.

6-1, 225. 94 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 8 TFL, 1 forced fumble, 2 fumble recoveries in three seasons.

Brother McCoy, WR Soph.

6-4, 220. 21 catches, 236 yards (11.2 YPC), 2 TD in 2020 at USC.

Jaylen McCollough, S.Sr.

6-0, 205. 126 tackles, 3 INTs, 12 abandoned passes, 2 sacks, 9 TFL, 1 forced fumble in three seasons.
