KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Justin Hunter isn't going far to continue his football career. The former Vol receiver was drafted by the NFL's Tennessee Titans on Friday night.

Hunter was selected with the 2nd pick in the second round of the draft, the 34th pick overall.

The Titans had to wheel and deal to get Hunter, making a trade with the San Francisco 49ers.

Tennessee give up their 40th pick, a seventh rounder and a third round pick in the 2014 draft.

Hunter made an immediate impact with the Vols when he arrived in Knoxville in 2010.

As a freshman, seven of his 16 catches went for touchdowns.

His sophomore season was cut short when he suffered a serious knee injury in the third game at Florida.

As a junior, Hunter led the Vols with 73 catches, 1083 receiving yards a nine touchdowns.

In December, he announced his intention to leave Tennessee for a shot at the NFL.
