Though it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, Boom Williams told the media following practice today that he was considering the NFL Draft, and will talk things over with his family following the TaxSlayer Bowl on New Year’s Eve.
He said, “Conversations and things have started. That’s something I have to think about as well. Right now my main focus is the bowl game, but after the bowl game, me and the family will talk some more and will handle that situation.”
We knew it was a possibility going into the year, and that only went up as the year progressed. Injury problems still remain a concern, but that likely won’t stop NFL teams from lighting up Boom’s phone when the time comes.
Should he decide to return, Kentucky would easily possess one of the best backfields in the country next season, led by Boom, Benny Snell, and RS freshman AJ Rose likely taking third-team reps.
