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.

The secondary has a great combination of experience and youth, speed and power. Senior Prentiss Waggner is the leader of the group, but don't be surprised if sophomore Brian Randolph begins to take a bigger role by midseason from his safety position.

The newcomers have skill and swagger. They might disrupt the status quo, which wouldn't be the worst thing for a secondary that managed only five interceptions in 2011.

From the Vols true freshmen to the outgoing seniors, here's all you need to know about the UT secondary.
