Kentucky football has its first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Linebacker Josh Forrest was selected 190th overall in the 6th round by the Los Angeles Rams.
Forrest was initially seen as a seventh rounder, potentially falling out of the draft as a free agent. After struggling in the NFL Combine, he bounced back at pro day and showed the Rams exactly what they needed to see.
Forrest is joining a fellow Kentucky kid in L.A. — Tyler Higbee, a skilled tight end from WKU.
