A couple of things... This is just a list that I think is a realistic big board at this time. Keep in mind that Autry, Wharton, Creamer, and Elliot Berry could play different positions. Who else seems like a (semi) realistic option at this juncture?
Thanks for putting this together. It really helps visualize how the staff is trying to get the class to shake out. Based on my count, we could even take a couple more guys.
See what you hit; hit what you see.
A lot of Tennessee boys on that list.
Great looking list, thanks for the work. I didn't see it first hand, but someone RT a tweet from Williams that said that he enjoied his visit to TN, but that SCJR still led. I do think that getting at least 4 of the LB that you list is very possible, and even Williams is still out there, it just sounds as though we still have quite a bit of work to do.
I think we may take around 31 this year. I would say 2-3 RB I think we will take one more if it is the right one….. 4 WR we will need lots of WR in this system, Butch has already talked about the need for more WR.
I think that Elliot Berry could end up at LB too. Especially if we manage to get Kelly and Smith.

Good list. I would also add Nick Chubb at RB, Chad Mavety at OL, and Shaun Hamilton at LB. I think all three of those are big targets. Mavety may be a long shot but I think we're in good shape with the other two. Land Chubb and we would be done at RB.
Is it possible that we have TOO MANY talented receivers strongly considering us in this class too take?
Wow You really put some time into this list. I like it !
I don't know if you can have too many but I understand your concern.
If we're looking at Smith as a LB then maybe Gaulden will play safety but I've heard he's a great WR as well.
We have a lot of WR on the roster (albeit young ones) and zero seniors. With Creamer and Wharton committed it puts us at 13 WRs. I think the question is how many slots of an 85 person roster will be allotted to the WR position? As others have noted - some of these players could end up playing other positions.
