The Tennessee Volunteers have a long list of great football players that have donned UT orange. But behind every winning season, bowl win and championship trophy is a slew of players who made it all possible but don't get the appreciation they deserve. I've got five of them for you here.
Remember that there's a huge difference between being "underrated" and being "underappreciated." The former lends itself to lazily naming players that we all know and love (like Nick Reveiz), while the former conjures up a few names that we may not be as familiar with.
Note also that these men all come from the 1990s and 2000s since it's difficult to underappreciate a player capable of such notoriety for 30 years. Eventually, players worthy of recognition receive it, especially with the Big Orange.
