Kyle Phillips – Noteworthy
Tennessee hosted its annual Pro Day on Thursday morning with a group of draft-eligible Vols showcasing their talents in front of NFL scouts and executives. There were a total of 12 UT athletes participating in workouts throughout the day: Micah Abernathy, Paul Bain, Keller Chryst, Malik Elion, D.J. Henderson, Alexis Johnson Jr., Jonathon Kongbo, Madre London, Jesse Medford, Kyle Phillips, Quart’e Sapp and Shy Tuttle.

Kyle Phillips wrapped up his Vol career on Thursday morning at Tennessee’s indoor practice facility. The Nashville native, who collected 114 tackles, eight sacks and 16 tackles for loss in his four-year career, showed scouts his abilities one last time at Tennessee’s 2019 Pro Day. “I think it’s a good opportunity to get more exposure,” Phillips said. “Last week, I went to a regional combine and all 32 teams were there. It’s about getting as many eyes on you as possible.” Phillips assembled his best season with the Vols in 2018, posting a career-high in tackles (56), sacks (5), TFL (8), and notched a forced fumble while also recovering one fumble. – WDEF TV News 12
