Following Thursday’s practice, first-year wide receivers coach Kelsey Pope met with media.

Pope served as an offensive analyst for the Vols in 2021. He was promoted as Tennessee’s wide receivers coach in March, replacing Kodi Burns who departed for the New Orleans Saints.

Below are Pope’s analysis of wide receivers who have stepped up during fall training camp.

“Jalin Hyatt seems like a different guy mentally. Physically, he’s gained about eight to 10 pounds. The competitiveness that he showed last year, he’s channeling it in a different direction. You see him respond the right way. You see him coach guys up when he’s not in. He’s really taken on that accountability role for himself and also the group.”

“Ramel Keyton had a good camp. He made some really good plays today. The biggest thing with him is to emphasize him being consistent, not only on the underneath stuff, but also challenging him down the field to make those plays consistently.”
