Interestingly enough, CFN.com does not list UT's Arron Sears among the country's top 25 offensive tackles. Three SEC players made the list, though – Auburn's Marcus McNeill at No. 2, LSU's Andrew Whitworth at No. 4 and Ole Miss' Tre Stallings at No. 22.

Not surprisingly, Tennessee does not place anyone among CFN.com's top 25 centers. The Vols are a bit unproven at that position heading into the 2005 season.

Here's CFN.com's top five centers:
CFN.com previously rated Tennessee's Gerald Riggs, Jr., No. 10 among college running backs and Vol teammate Erik Ainge No. 17 among NCAA quarterbacks. No Vols made the top 25 at wide receiver or tight end.
Collegefootballnews.com will release its top 25 players at the various defensive positions later.
