For the first time since 2002, the Vols have had two players selected in the first round.
DT Justin Harrell was the No. 16 pick of the Green Bay Packers, while the New Orleans Saints took WR Robert Meachem with the 27th selection.
Harrell was the first Tennessee DT to be taken in the first round since John Henderson (No. 9) and Albert Haynesworth (No. 15) in 2002. Meachem's choice gives the Vols nine first round wide receiver picks since 1980, the most of any college.
The Saints were the last team to take a Vol, selecting WR Donte' Stallworth with their first pick in 2002.
