Kahlil McKenzie announces he's entering NFL draft


Tennessee is losing a third junior to early entry into the NFL draft.
Defensive tackle Kahlil McKenzie, the son of former Vol and current Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, announced via his Instagram on Sunday night that he will forego his senior season with the Vols to enter the draft.
Running back John Kelly and defensive back Rashaan Gaulden also recently declared their intentions to jump to the NFL instead of returning to Tennessee to play for new coach Jeremy Pruitt in 2018.

Interesting. I am wondering now with all the guys leaving are they leaving because of Pruitts type of coaching and maybe feeling he is more demanding of a coach? Good luck to everyone leaving but really some of these folks never met the hype they came into the school with.

 

I hope KM succeeds. Not sure about the others though. John Kelly might be another one like Kamara and be a hidden draft gem. Should be interesting

Kelly needs to go-to the right team. I'm sure Khalil got feedback from people his dad knows and like what he heard

Hope that feedback is true but he really never played to his level of hype he came in with.

Hard to accurately evaluate Kelly with an OL that was constantly being shuffled and patched together with duct tape. A line that couldn't block (113th in country in sacks allowed) or tackles for loss (120th) or open holes didn't make his life any easier. If games are won or lost in the trenches then it's no wonder the Vols finished 112th in rushing.

Yeah I agree on Kelly. The offensive line outside of Trey Smith was... well offensive.  :laughing1:
