Insider Report: Vols bulking up just in time

Stay on top of news out of Big Orange Country by frequently visiting InsideTennessee.

Tennessee will have more than its fair share of NFL Draft selections later this April, potentially having half a dozen former Volunteers hear their name called.

As positive of a sign as that is that things in Rocky Top are going in the right direction in terms of football talent, in the wake of those departures is a wave of question marks.

Will Darrell Taylor pick up some of the slack from Derek Barnett's early entry to the draft? Is John Kelly ready to be "The Man" at running back with both Jalen Hurd and Alvin Kamara gone? Does Tennessee have the bulk inside to slow down opposing running games after allowing 218.5 rushing yards per game in 2016?

To start getting answers, several Volunteers absolutely had to have a productive winter in the weightroom. From the looks of things, those key members of Team 121 have done exactly that.

Learn about who some of those players are that look quite a bit different, plus details on what's different about first-year Tennessee wide receivers coach Kevin Beard by watching the videos above and below.
