Will the most versatile player in the NFL be joined by college football’s most versatile player in Baltimore?
In the first official NFL Mock Draft over at NFL.com, former Kentucky superstar Lynn Bowden Jr. falls to the third round, but is taken by the Baltimore Ravens at No. 92 overall.
Bowden and Lamar Jackson in the same offense? Filthy.
Created by NFL Draft Analyst Chad Reuter, the mock draft extends just three rounds, with Bowden being the lone Wildcat making the cut. Former Kentucky left guard Logan Stenberg, who boosted his draft stock at the Senior Bowl, is expected to be a mid-round selection this spring.
Calvin Taylor Jr., Kash Daniel, TJ Carter, Ahmad Wagner, and Jordan Griffin represent the other graduating seniors at UK hoping to get their shots in the NFL, as well.
