The key to making an NFL team as an undrafted free agent is finding the right fit. One Tennessee wide receiver appears to have done that.
This time last year most folks were talking about how bad Tennessee's receiving corps was going to be in 2007. Twelve months later, those same folks are talking about how GOOD it's going to be in 2008.
Tennessee's top six wide receivers from 2007 are back for '08, but the offensive coordinator, the scheme and the quarterback are new. Many observers believe this will create significant adjustment problems.
Offensive coordinator Dave Clawson says he wants to settle on five receivers who will get the majority of the snaps for Tennessee in 2008. Well ... good luck with that.
A year ago at this time, one of the major concerns for Tennessee's football team entering spring practice was the wide receiver position.
