Kentucky’s standout corner Trevard Lindley was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the seventh pick of the fourth round of the NFL draft, #105 overall. He was the first of four picks for the Eagles in the fourth round, in which they also drafted linebacker Keenan Clayton of Oklahoma, quarterback Mike Kafka out of Northwestern and tight end Clay Harbor from Missouri State.
There are still a few Cats waiting to hear their name called, including Micah Johnson and fullback John Conner. We’ll certainly keep you updated when and if they come off the board.
***Conner was selected by the Jets with the 8th pick of the 5th round, #139 overall. As a fullback, one would imagine that going to a team that runs the ball more than basically everyone else in the NFL is a pretty good situation. Congrats to Conner.
