Peyton Manning Reportedly Told Butch Jones He Saw Legit "Sunday Bodies" During UT's Spring Game

This past weekend, no Tennessee players were taken during the NFL Draft. In fact, it was the first time since 1963 that the Vols didn't hear one name called by the league's commissioner. But if we're to believe former UT great Peyton Manning, it won't be a trend that lasts very long. According to ESPN's Chris Low, Manning told Butch Jones during the program's spring game that he's starting to see legit "Sunday bodies" on the squad. In short, that means he thinks Tennessee has future NFL players on its roster.
