After evaluating today's signings, what are the most important positions of need for next year?
I am considering QB and WR in good -very good standing currently. Kicking game adequate, maybe shopping for another punter? RB and the entire defense need help and we know how hard the O-line will be hit by graduation. So for me:
1) LB extremely thin here. Hoping Maggitt returns healthy.
2) D-line especially DTs
3) DBs a 5star caliber or two to act as salve for the VB spurning
4) O-line will need 2 or 3 Jucos and 2-3 high school high stars
5) A premium RB with power and speed (here's hoping Jabo is healthy and another Rajon to complement Lane)
Defense in any sport tends to be the cornerstone to championships. I guess that precept guided my thinking. Go Vols. Rise to the Top.

Thanks for the reply Denver. The lack of LB commits was the most disappointing aspect of this recruiting class for me, even more so than losing out on Vonn Bell. I was/am puzzled as to why guys like Cunningham or Skai Moore did not jump at the chance to come to the Vols after checking out our depth chart.
