03/17/12 - The University of Tennessee hosted Pro Timing Day on Friday afternoon at the Neyland-Thompson Sports Center, as 10 former Vols showcased their abilities in front of 21 NFL scouts. Among the former Vols that participated were Anthony Anderson, Art Evans, Nick Guess, Malik Jackson, Austin Johnson, Ben Martin, Tauren Poole, Chip Rhome, Matt Simms and Daryl Vereen. For most of that unit, Pro Day is what they had been training for since the end of their playing careers at Tennessee. For Jackson and Poole - who earned NFL Combine invites - it was another chance to highlight their attributes. But for all 10 former Vols, it was a chance to come home. "This is calmer," Poole said, comparing it to his NFL Combine experience in late February. "You are not as nervous. I have been here, I'm used to it, I'm comfortable and I know everybody. At the combine, you don't' know people and you don't know what to expect. Here, I know what to expect and I am more familiar with this place." Overall, the former Vols were pleased with their performances, including Martin, who spent six weeks at St. Vincent's in Indianapolis to prepare. "I felt like I did pretty well," Martin said. "I showed that I was healthy and that I could do everything. I'm pretty comfortable with it. Now, I just need somebody to take a chance on me." The NFL Draft, which takes place April 26-28, will witness 32 teams taking chances to improve their futures. Johnson hopes he's one of them. "I got a lot of good feedback," Johnson said. "Teams seemed interested in me and wanted to talk more. I think I opened some eyes today to people maybe not looking at me until today. I felt good about the day. I felt strong. I just hope and pray for the best." - Tennessee football
01/21/12 - EAST-WEST SHRINE WEDNESDAY: RB Tauren Poole, Tennessee: After a slow start, Poole has really separated himself as the top running back on either squad. He runs with low pad level and quickness through the line of scrimmage, routinely getting to the second level. Poole had an up-and-down 2011 campaign, which is why he isn't at the Senior Bowl, but he has been running tough, decisive and quick with smooth acceleration in practices. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
