The NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday, May 8, and several recent Vols are hoping to join a pretty exclusive group of #VFL's in the NFL.

Historically, Tennessee ranks seventh among all schools with 334 draft selections, which leads all SEC schools. In the last 25 years, the Vols have had 26 First-Round Draft picks, which is the 6th most of any other team.

Tennessee could become the first program to have four offensive linemen drafted in the same draft since Notre Dame in 2003 and Arizona State in 2002.

So which Vols are hoping to make the cut this year? lists these Vols as having the best chance in the draft:

Zach Fulton | OL 6-5 316
Ja'Wuan James | OL 6-6 311
Daniel McCullers | DL 6-7 352
Rajion Neal | RB 5-11 220
Antonio Richardson | OL 6-6 336
James Stone | OL 6-4 306
