Tennessee had 3 players selected in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Rashaan Gaulden led the way in the third round at pick number 85 to the Carolina Panthers. He will be used primarily at Safety.
John Kelly went in the sixth round to the Los Angeles Rams. Kelly will have a real shot to become the second running back in Los Angeles behind Todd Gurley. Currently, 4th-year running back Malcolm Brown holds that spot. In 2017, Brown ran the ball 63 times for 246 yards.
Sixth round was closer to the “worst case scenario” for his prospects, but the landing spot is pretty ideal. He was never going to be a lead back, but he will get the opportunity to fight for lead backup behind a top 3 running back in the league in an explosive offense in one of the premier markets.
Kahlil McKenzie didn’t have to wait for as long as some thought, as the Kansas City Chiefs selected McKenzie with the 24th pick in the sixth round.
McKenzie’s father of course is the General Manager of the Chiefs rival, the Oakland Raiders.
Kahlil will be moving to the offensive side of the ball to play guard, a lot of moves that Tennessee fans thought would make sense if McKenzie were to return for his senior season.
Kahlil McKenzie was drafted to play guard, according to the Chiefs. So some interior beef on the other side of the ball, too
