C. R. Butler gets $ from JJ and Briesel to re-sign.
D. Barwin leaves after great season. We draft OLB (again).
E. Shawn Cody is not re-signed.
F. Posey is or is not successful, we still draft a replacement for WR1 to train.
1. WR Da'Rick Rogers Tennesse (junior) 6'3" 215 He is noted to have "issues"
but facts are the 2010 disorderly conduct & resisting arrest after a cop was knocked out were dismissed. He had a run in with strength coach & threatened him & was banned from off season activities for two weeks. Never suspended. Coach McKeefery was in his first year with Tenn & is a former Army performance coordinator Special Forces so may be a tad gung ho. Also note that Tenn Vols hired 7 new assistants. I think Rogers will do fine but expect him to enter draft after this season. He might be better than any WR in 2012 draft.

Back in 2009, as expected, several prospects stood out. One of these young men, wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers, ran a blistering 4.34 40-yard dash
at a mind boggling 6'2, 197-lbs. *Note this is a hand held device.
2. FS Robert Lester Alabama 6' 210 4.51 I had him as a late first 2012 after a 8INTs 2010. He "dropped off" 2011: 2 INTs but was close on others. He plays excellent (continued)
Well, so far you're 1 outta 6 on who stays and who goes. But it's early. As for getting a WR in the 1st, I'm not sure they will go that route, especially with someone who's been in trouble with the law . At least I hope not. If they do it means a lot went wrong this coming season with AJ, Jean, K-Mart, and Posey. I'm pulling for them to go after a big and fast TE with good hands and good blocking skills in the 1st (hopefully at #32
). We are getting kinda thin at TE now and if OD goes down we could be in for trouble. That would leave only GG and Thor left, and we need Thor as FB also.
I do agree we need a NT and I hope we get one early. Maybe in round 2. But I'm also thinking they may go after an ILB and possibly another OLB if Barwin does leave.
