Tennessee underclassmen Tyler Bray and Cordarrelle Patterson have announced that they will enter the 2013 NFL draft.
When new Tennessee head coach Butch Jones attempts to resurrect a fledgling Volunteer program next season, he will now have to do so without the Vols’ three most explosive offensive players from 2012.
Right on the heels of junior wide receiver Justin Hunter announcing that he will enter the NFL draft less than a week ago, fellow Tennessee underclassmen quarterback Tyler Bray and Cordarrelle Patterson have also announced that they will forego the remainder of their collegiate eligibility.
Jones announced Patterson’s pending departure to members of the media on Thursday afternoon, saying that he was “definitely going to the NFL”.
CBS Sports is now reporting that Tyler Bray will follow his two talented playmakers into the draft.
Bray threw for over 3,600 yards and 34 touchdowns in 2012, while Hunter and Patterson combined to catch 119 passes for 1,861 yards and 14 receiving touchdowns.
All three Tennessee underclassmen are currently projected as second round picks by CBS Sports.
