Former Tennessee DT Kahlil McKenzie talks NFL Draft in an Uninterrupted feature piece

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

One of the biggest (non-coaching search related) surprises of the Tennessee offseason was Kahlil McKenzie’s decision to enter the 2018 NFL Draft. The former five-star recruit frankly underwhelmed in his time as a Vol, but decided to move on and head to the league after his junior season.

McKenzie is the son of an NFL general manager, adding a unique layer to his decision. He sat down with for a feature piece just days before he finds out where his next home will be.

“I never call it pressure, but I just want to make sure that I’m doing what I need to do to where everyone talks about me the same way they talk about my dad and uncle,” McKenzie said. “I’ve always wanted to play in the NFL. That’s the only thing I’ve thought about. That’s all I’ve wanted to do — that’s all I’ve known my whole life.”

McKenzie is expected to go sometime during day three. Will Reggie McKenzie make his son the newest Raider? That’s where my money would be going.
