4 Tennessee players, including Bray, decide to enter draft

January 9, 2013 

— Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray, wide receivers Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson and defensive end 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.
