Seems like a pretty good get. If CBJ can come up with two or three more like him to go along with some of the young ones already on the squad, the Vols may not be in TOO bad a shape on the O-line when this year's line leaves. They still have some distance to go to shore up the D-line, but "sufficient unto the day are the cares thereof".
