Software iSCSI and limited pNIC's

Here is our current setup which is not ideal and built long before I started.

8 ESXi 6.5 hosts
1x 2 port fiber
1x 1GB management port

Right now all Vm guest and NFS traffic are on one vswitch and use the same physical interfaces. Here is my question / problem. We have a new iSCSI SAN. I have created a software iscsi interface but cannot bind any pNIC's because they are all in use. Is my only option to have the iSCSI traffic use the same vswitch and vlan as well?
