Tennessee Volunteers Football: What You Need to Know About the Secondary

The Tennessee Volunteers will field a strong group of defensive backs in their secondary in 2012. Who are they, and where do they fit in to a season that's pivotal for the future of the program?

Last week, I reviewed the Volunteers' offensive line, which is behind only the wide receivers as the deepest and most talented bunch. There are still a few questions left to be answered in the secondary, but I put it right behind the offensive line as the third-best overall unit.
