Tennessee again shut out of NFL draft

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE (Times Free Press) -- Tennessee's hopes of starting another long NFL draft streak will have to wait another year.

The Volunteers were shut out of the draft for a second consecutive year when no former players were taken in the final four rounds on Saturday.

Wide receiver Marquez North, who elected to enter the draft following his junior season, was Tennessee's best draft prospect, while safety Brian Randolph and defensive end/linebacker Curt Maggitt topped the list of fringe prospects who will seek free-agent deals tonight.

The Vols were the only SEC program without a player drafted.
