Tennessee Football: Incoming Freshmen Most Likely to Start This Season
Wade Payne/Associated Press

Now that Tennessee's heralded 2014 class is all settled in on campus and preparing for fall camp, it's time to identify the players out of that group who can clamp down starting roles as freshmen.

Highly ranked recruiting classes full of talented players are business as usual in the SEC. For most schools, a half-dozen freshmen may see the field during the season, and a few standout players may even crack the two-deep depth chart.

But at Tennessee, the combination of a lack of depth, talent and speed means the Volunteers will rely heavily on their newcomers to fill holes in the offense, defense and special teams. 

Not only will a sizable chunk of the 31 players who comprised the 2014 class see significant playing time this fall but a handful will also even start from day one.

Here are five Tennessee freshmen who have the playmaking abilities to be potential four-year starters for the Vols—beginning with their first career game on Aug. 31.
