The NFL Draft is one of the most glorious days of spring for rabid football fans and it’s quickly upon us.
Last year, the Tennessee Volunteers had four former players drafted (five if you count Montori Hughes) — Cordarrelle Patterson, Justin Hunter, Dallas Thomas and Mychal Rivera.
The Vols could match that number again (or possibly even pass it), as they have seven players that we believe could be in the mix to be drafted this year.
The 2014 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday night at 8:00 PM ET.
Rounds 2-3 will begin on Friday evening at 6:30 PM ET. Rounds 4-7 begin on Saturday at 12:00 PM ET.
You can watch the entire draft on either ESPN or NFL Network.
