Derek Barnett

Derek Barnett finally broke the school career sack record held by the late, great Reggie White in the fourth quarter of the Music City Bowl.

Mission accomplished, twice. The Vols won the game 38-24 over Nebraska. Now the question is, will Barnett skip his senior season and jump to the NFL Draft?

In my opinion, there’s no reason why Barnett should return to school. His productivity is second to none in the SEC over that past three seasons. I would expect him to leave for the NFL as most draft analysts project him as a top ten pick.

However, Vols defensive coordinator Bob Shoop has other hopes.
