KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Eric Berry isn't the only Tennessee Volunteer entering the NFL draft as a junior.

Defensive back Dennis Rogan has also made himself eligible for the April draft, according to a list of names released by the NFL on Tuesday.

The Knoxville native finished fourth on the team in 2009 with 69 tackles, returned three fumbles for a total of 42 yards and grabbed one interception.

Rogan will be competing for an NFL spot against other defensive backs such as his two-time All-American teammate Berry, Florida's Joe Haden and Southern California's Taylor Mays.

No other junior Vols declared for the draft.

Running back Montario Hardesty, offensive tackle Chris Scott and defensive tackle Dan Williams were among the seniors invited to participate in the NFL combine.
