KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee QB Tyler Bray, WRs Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson and DE Darrington Sentimore are bypassing their senior seasons to enter the NFL draft.
The university announced their decisions in a release Wednesday.
Patterson caught 46 passes for 778 yards and five touchdowns this fall as a first-team all-Southeastern Conference all-purpose player. Hunter had 73 receptions for 1,083 yards and nine touchdowns as a second-team all-SEC pick. Both are considered potential first-round selections.
Bray threw for 3,612 yards and 34 touchdowns this season to rank second on Tennessee's single-season list in both categories, behind Peyton Manning's 3,819 yards and 36 touchdown passes in 1997. Bray also threw 12 interceptions.
Sentimore had 18 overall tackles — five for loss — and a team-high four sacks this fall.
