Posey is currently buried on the depth chart and even with the certain loss of 4 starters and the highly probably loss of the 5th starter on the offensive line, Alan was looking at an up hill battle to see the field next year.
Vincent Dallas had been returning kicks this year in the absence of Devrin Young but had seen limited action elsewhere on the field. Dallas had moved from WR to DB this summer after Riyahd Jones was injured but was passed on the 2-deep by several freshmen sending him back to WR to much the same story. Every game this year he has been listed as freshman WR Marquez North's backup on the 2-deep but has only caught 2 passes for 14 yards ranking him next to last for Vols with at least one catch this year in yards (ahead of Devrin Young, whose one catch was a 9 yard touchdown).
Justin Meredith came to the Vols as highly touted TE but a hamstring injury that has not healed means Justin's college football career is over before it ever began. Justin agreed to take the medical hardship scholarship, meaning UT will continue to pay his scholarship but he is no longer eligible to play and does not count against the 85 player limit.
