Here’s an updated list of University of Tennessee players in the National Football League after 11 minicamps got underway last weekend with the rest taking place this weekend.

I’ve included some notes, jersey numbers, unofficial depth chart positions and camp dates for each team so you can follow along for news on each player. You will also see the list of players with local ties to the Knoxville area or didn’t end their college careers at UT.

NFL rosters can be kept at up to 90 players until final preseason cuts August 31, 2019.

I’ll update this list throughout the year here on my blog “Vince’s View.” Bookmark my blog page and check back often.
