I have had several questions about Reggie White and why one of the greatest defensive linemen in NFL history was not included among the Tennessee Volunteers' players in the ESPN.com NFL draft pipeline challenge.

In short, the data that was compiled for this project came only on those players who were taken in the NFL draft directly out of college.

In White's case, he first went to the USFL out of college before being taken by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1984 supplemental draft.

This explains why he is not listed among the notable players for Tennessee.
