Kivon Bennett has been one of the most underrated players for Tennessee in this early season. While Bennett has not stuffed the stat sheet, he has been a consistent factor off the edge for Tennessee’s defense. This week, Pro Football Focus named Bennett to their Team of the Week for Week 5.

Bennett had three total tackles during Saturday’s contest against Missouri and was credited with a quarterback hurry, as well. Bennett’s ability to disrupt off the edge was enough to land him on the team of the week. He had one very noticeable swim move while working a guard in a one-on-one setting during yesterday’s contest that left him with a free run at the quarterback.

To this point, Bennett has received a pass-rush grade of 83.7 from PFF. That grade lands him at 11th overall for edge rushers in the 2020 season.

As a pass rusher for this season, Bennett has graded out to be 2nd overall in pass-rush situations, according to the outlet.
