Here’s an updated list of University of Tennessee players in the National Football League after the last 21 rookie minicamps were completed.

Now all 32 teams have held rookie minicamps. Rosters are still fluid with teams announcing the signing of undrafted free agents and tryout players at their own pace. NFL rosters can be kept at up to 90 players until final preseason cuts August 31, 2019.

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.

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