No one seems to have emerged as the go to receiver for the Tennessee Volunteers. That bodes well for Ethan Wolf. Wolf may emerge as the go to pass option for whoever becomes the Volunteers quarterback.

2018 NFL draft potential
Ethan Wolf first showed up on the NFL Draft Board with the Snack Pack Football 2018 NFL mock draft. Snack Pack Football has Ethan Wolf going to the Buffalo Bills with pick number 17 in the first round.
This is what Snack Pack Football says about Ethan Wolf.
Ethan Wolf has quietly been one of the most talented tight ends in the country, but limited production at Tennessee has kept him off of the national radar. If he can take the next step as a tight end, the sky is the limit for Wolf.
Right now, Wolf appears to be a mid-second round draft prospect according to the NFL Draft Board.
But, for any team looking for a tight end, Ethan Wolf is the first tight end to show up on the NFL Draft Board.
The 2017 NFL draft was loaded with tight ends. And, a lot of teams took tight ends. There shouldn’t be as big of a demand for tight ends as in 2017. This could work against Wolf.
Snack Pack Football is absolutely correct that Wolf could make the first round if he puts together a great season. Unfortunately, Tennessee seems headed for an average year.
