Tennessee tight end Mychal Rivera has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 26.
The annual NFL showcase game is considered the most prestigious of the postseason exhibition games meant to highlight pro football prospects.
Rivera joins offensive lineman Dallas Thomas at the event.
Rivera was Tennessee's first All-SEC tight end since Jason Witten in 2002. He caught a career-high 36 passes for 562 yards in 2012, setting a new mark for Tennessee tight ends.
Five other Vols will be in postseason all-star games.
Ben Bartholomew, Zach Rogers and Prentiss Waggner will play in the Raycom All-Star Classic while Herman Lathers and Marsalis Teague were invited to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Meanwhile, former UT safeties coach Josh Conklin has been hired as defensive coordinator at Florida International, the Miami Herald reported.
Conklin is the seventh of nine assistant coaches under Derek Dooley in 2012 who have found new jobs. Only special teams coordinator Charlie Coiner and defensive line coach John Palermo have not found new positions. Palermo, 60, was already in semi-retirement when he took a job on Dooley's staff a year ago and might not pursue another position.
