KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - NFL scouts, coaches and executives were on hand for Tennessee football’s Pro Day on Thursday. Members of the 2022 Volunteer team showcased their skills inside the Anderson Training Center. Current Vols held their sixth practice of the spring on Thursday morning before the scene shifted to Pro Day in the early afternoon.

Tennessee is poised to produce its best NFL Draft production in years, in large part because of the group who returned to Knoxville for Pro Day. The Vols sent seven players to the NFL Combine earlier this month.

Players on site included linebacker Jeremy Banks, punter Paxton Brooks, defensive lineman LaTrell Bumphus, offensive lineman Jerome Carvin, tight end Princeton Fant, defensive back Trevon Flowers, quarterback Hendon Hooker, wide receiver Jalin Hyatt, place kicker Chase McGrath, linebacker Solon Page III, defensive lineman Maurese Smith, wide receiver Cedric Tillman, offensive tackle Darnell Wright and edge rusher Byron Young.
