49ers among NFL teams at Tennessee pro day

Mar 31, 2017 at 4:24 PM--

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch may have been busy watching quarterback Patrick Mahomes at Texas Tech's pro day on Friday, but that doesn't mean the team didn't have a presence at the University of Tennessee's pro day. According to Rhiannon Potkey of USA TODAY, every NFL team was represented at the Vols' pro day.

24 players worked out in front of NFL teams, including four former Vols and four players from Carson-Newman. Among the prospects were running back Alvin Kamara and edge rusher Derek Barnett.

Barnett was at the NFL Scouting Combine last month but was fighting flu-like symptoms while there. "My energy, I was smiling,'' said Barnett following the pro day. "It felt good to feel like myself, to have some pep in my step going through these drills. This is a dream come true for all of us, trying to get to the NFL."

Robert Meachem was among the former Vols participating on Friday. The receiver played for the New Orleans Saints from 2007 until 2014 and is trying to make his way back onto an NFL roster.

Below is a list of all 24 participants on Friday.

Two San Francisco 49ers were named to the list. The first to represent the Niners is second-year pass rusher Nick Bosa, who comes in at No. 42.

Former NFL running back turned NFL Media analyst Maurice Jones-Drew ranked his top 15 running backs, as he will do each week. San Francisco 49ers back Raheem Mostert came in at No. 11 on the list after one week's worth of NFL games. Mostert earned his first career NFL start. That's right. In his sixth NFL season, Mostert finally made his first start on Sunday. Yes, he led the team in rushing last season but wasn't on the field with his teammates during the first offensive snap of any game. Mostert showed off his versatility on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, rushing for 56 yards on 15 attempts and hauling in four passes for 95 yards and
