    After six Vols were drafted onto NFL roster in the 2017 NFL Draft and a handful of others signed undrafted free agent deals, Tennessee now has 40 players on 20 different NFL rosters. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs have the most with five former Vols each, and eight other teams have two or more former Vols on their roster.

    There are only 12 teams in the NFL without Vols on their roster. One of them is actually just a handful of hours away from UT’s campus and is in the state of Tennessee. The Titans are one of the few NFL teams without a Vol on their roster. The Jimmy Haslam-owned Cleveland Browns do have a couple former Vols on their roster, however.
