We're officially under way, with Justin Hunter and Antonio Richardson at the podium.
Hunter said he thinks his knee is 100 percent. His legs may not be as strong as before right now, but he feels good.

Hunter said the Vols' newcomers at wide receiver are "all doing real good," and he believes UT's wide receiver corps is "one of the best in the country."
Not as strong but he has increased his weight and vertical? That doesn't make sense to me.
Tiny seems confident.

Richardson said he and the rest of the Vols' players were asked to pick two or three NFL players to study on film this offseason. He said he picked Michael Roos of the Titans and Jake Long of the Dolphins.
Richardson said the Vols' OL is "starting to get things going in the right direction" under OL coach Sam Pittman.
Prentiss Waggner, Mychal Rivera and Dallas Thomas now at the podium.
Waggner said the Vols have a good group of leaders and a lot of vocal guys this year.
Waggner said defensive coordinator Sal Sunseri reminds him a bit of John Chavis, who was here when Waggner arrived at UT.
Hmmmm... I don't know what to say on that.
"cause you can't cook, son" haha great stuff
Lol this ^^^^
Waggner said he's trying to learn the whole defense, but he's just working at cornerback right now.
Rivera on the Vols' offensive weapons: "If you give Bray a bunch of options like that, the sky's the limit."
Rivera said he didn't believe his physical conditioning was where it needed to be last season, but it's finally there this year. He said he's better equipped to shoulder a heavy workload at tight end.
Rivera said sophomore TE Brendan Downs has stepped up since Cameron Clear's dismissal, and Downs understands his role and is ready to go this year.
Dallas Thomas said the Vols' 7-on-7 workouts this summer have been must-see events. The linemen always have rushed through their workouts to get finished and go watch the 7-on-7s. One of the highlights, he said, was when Justin Hunter was going against Eric Berry — and Hunter beat him.
Curt Maggitt, A.J. Johnson and Brian Randolph now at the podium.
Maggitt and Johnson both spoke highly of Herman Lathers, his leadership in particular. Maggitt said Lathers is a great leader, great guy to be around. Both compared Lathers to Austin Johnson on last year's team in terms of his leadership role.
"One of the highlights, he said, was when Justin Hunter was going against Eric Berry — and Hunter beat him."
Maggitt said he has been working at a few different positions this offseason, but he believes he'll start off at Sam linebacker, as we expected.
He said he thinks he'll have his hand on the ground some, too — "hopefully a lot more than last year."
Wow.... Video of this? I hope somewhere?
The journey to becoming an Ironman
That's what we're talking about!
Johnson, as we previously had reported, said he's down about 10 pounds from last year, and he's faster than he was a year ago. Said he's still working on improving his speed.
