  2020 NFL COMBINE INVITE: Darrell Taylor, DE, Tennessee,...Taylor was one of the most fearsome pass rushers in the SEC during his final two seasons. The Hopewell, Va., native finished with 19.5 sacks (10th-most in UT history), 26.5 TFLs and 118 total tackles over his 43-game career. He ranked tied for second in the SEC with 8.5 sacks in 2019 after totaling 8.0 sacks in 2018. He became the third Vol ever to have a four-sack game when he accomplished the feat against Kentucky in 2018. - Tennessee Football

  The Vols boosted their bowl hopes because their best players delivered big-time performances. Jennings and Callaway are Tennessee's top two playmakers on offense, and both came up huge. Darrell Taylor had two sacks and broke up a fourth-down pass before getting hurt early in the fourth quarter. Daniel Bituli had 15 stops and blocked a punt and pounced on the ball in the end zone for Tennessee's final touchdown. - Tennessee/AP College Football

  Tennessee outside linebacker Darrell Taylor is coming off a breakthrough season but believes he's capable of doing even better. Taylor recorded eight sacks last season, the most of any Southeastern Conference player who returns this year. Taylor says he can improve upon those numbers if he gains the consistency that has been missing from his game up to his point. "The goal is definitely to exceed that," Taylor said. Taylor has shown he can deliver against quality opponents. Seven of his eight sacks last year came against Georgia and Kentucky , which both finished the season ranked 12th or higher.

The problem is that Taylor recorded a total of one sack in Tennessee's other 10 games. Taylor's coaches have preached the importance of producing a quality pass rush each week. "He has to bring it," co-defensive coordinator and outside linebackers coach Chris Rumph said. "He's the face of the program, the defense right now. We're expecting a lot of things out of him." Taylor's inconsistency last year may explain his relative lack of preseason acclaim. - AP College Football
