Vols ready for 2013 NFL draft

NEW YORK - The NFL Draft kicks off this Thursday, April 25 at 8 p.m. live from Radio City Music Hall on both ESPN and NFL Network and the Tennessee Volunteers are looking to make a big impact on this year's draft.

The Vols have had at least one player selected in the draft every year since 1963 and this year looks to be no exception.

Tennessee ranks seventh among all schools with 330 draft selections, which leads all SEC schools. Florida is second with 304.

Over the last 20 years (1993-2012), the Vols have had 19 NFL First-Round Draft Picks, marking the sixth-most of any team in college football. That mark is also second among all schools in the SEC behind Florida (21).

Cordarrelle Patterson looks to add to that first round total and will be in the house at Radio City Music Hall when the first round begins Thursday Night.
