Strengths Weaknesses

Maggitt (pronounced muh-JIT) will likely have to make the transition from defensive end to outside linebacker in the NFL, but he shows the agility, balance and acceleration to handle the switch and ranks as one of the more intriguing edge rushers in the conference.

--Rob Rang (4/20/15)

Player Overview

After missing the entire 2013 season due to an extended recovery from a torn ACL in November of 2012, Maggitt rewarded the Vols for their patience, leading the team with 11 sacks to go along with his 48 tackles, including 15 for loss.

03/26/2014 - The leader of Tennessee's football team is a guy who didn't play at all last year. Junior linebacker Curt Maggitt tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in November 2012. His last appearance in a game precedes second-year coach Butch Jones' arrival on campus. But that hasn't stopped Maggitt from making an impact. "He's our leader," Jones said. "He's the one who has everyone's respect. When Curt Maggitt talks, everybody listens." Jones has described Maggitt as the heart and soul of Tennessee's team. Maggitt, who says he's finally back at full strength, now wants to be described as a playmaker. "I'm feeling better and better," Maggitt said.

Maggitt started each of his first two seasons at Tennessee and developed a reputation as one of the defense's top big-play performers, but he battled a variety of injuries his sophomore year. He was having arguably his best game of the 2012 season against Missouri when he tore his ACL. The injury sidelined him longer than he expected. During the start of preseason camp last August, Maggitt indicated he was cautiously optimistic he'd be ready for the start of the season. As it turned out, he never played at all. By midseason, Maggitt and Jones agreed a redshirt was the best option for him. "I was really trying to feel it out in the first three to four games and I just didn't feel like myself," Maggitt said. "I think probably the fourth or fifth game, I sat down and talked with Coach Jones. That's the hardest decision I've made." - AP Sports
