Tennessee Football: Position-by-Position Spring Practice Preview
Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Fifteen pivotal practices are staring the Tennessee Volunteers in the face this spring, a handful of days that will go far in determining the length of strides the program takes in 2014.

While not everybody who will play a role on this year's team will be present, the Vols do have the luxury of already having 14 of their 31 signees on campus and ready to participate. That means head coach Butch Jones can teach, mold, push and examine many of the weapons he'll have at his disposal.

The growing pains can be weathered now, and by fall, perhaps a few of them will be counted on.

For positions like quarterback, offensive line and wide receiver, where most of the movers and shakers are already going through drills, this spring is massive for establishing a pecking order.

Other areas such as the defensive line, cornerbacks and safeties will feature players who are trying to get a firm foothold on positions before the reinforcements arrive.

If UT truly is on the brink of a big turnaround, the seeds of that will be sown starting Friday.

Let's take a look at the position-by-position breakdown heading into Coach Jones' second spring on the Hill.
