If the Tennessee Vols are going to be successful in 2019 (meaning they reach a bowl game), they’ll need some “unexpected” players to step up and have big seasons.
Thanks to a strong 2019 recruiting class, and some players that were already on the roster, the Vols have a more talented team than they did a season ago.
Sure, there are still plenty of question marks for the Vols. Will the offensive line be better? Does the defensive line have enough depth? Can quarterback Jarrett Guarantano take the next step as the leader of the offense?

But there’s also reason for optimism. Jeremy Pruitt has had plenty of time to settle in as UT’s head coach. The staff he’s put together is as good as any staff in the country. And the Vols’ strength and conditioning program appears to be paying major dividends.
There’s a realistic chance that Tennessee will win seven or eight games in 2019. But if that’s going to happen, they’ll need some players to step up and produce in a big way.
Here are five unexpected players that could make a major impact for UT in 2019.
