Kentucky Makes History in the 2019 NFL Draft

@UKFootball

@UKFootball

As expected, the 2019 NFL Draft was an historic event for the Kentucky football program.

For the first time in school history, a Wildcat was selected in each of the first four rounds of the NFL Draft. Josh Allen got the ball rolling Thursday night, followed by Lonnie Johnson in the second round, Mike Edwards in the third and Benny Snell in the fourth round.

Alabama, Ohio State and Oklahoma were the only other schools with players picked in each of the first four rounds.

It took a little longer for the next Wildcat to be drafted. Offensive tackle George Asafo-Adjei was selected by the New York Giants in the seventh round with the No. 232 pick. Asafo-Adjei’s selection gives the Cats five NFL Draft picks, the most in one draft since it was reduced to seven rounds in 1994.

The five Wildcats will not be the only ones on NFL training camps this fall. C.J. Conrad, Darius West and Derrick Baity are just a few of the players who will sign as free agents to make their NFL dreams come true.

    Bunchy Stallings, Jordan Jones as well as West, Baity and Conrad, all of them better than half the draft picks taken. I think Landon Young should go 1st round next season… keep the streak alive…

      We are no longer a basketball program, we are simply a pit stop. Well unless they find out they ere not as good as people thought, then we get them 2 years before they go pro anyways or transfer.

      To make it complete you would need to replace word #8 with the word “and” then add word nine “Football” followed by word ten “school”

      Does anyone know what Division one school has the lowest total for the following Academic Year 2018-2019 formula?

      Final Football Ranking + Final Basketball Ranking

      That would be us – beat Michigan and Auburn as I recall as only teams w top 20 ranked football and basketball teams in final poll.
