Mike Edwards Drafted 99th Overall by the Tampa Bay Bucs

With the 99th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Kentucky defensive back Mike Edwards. A third round selection, a UK player has been picked in each round of the NFL Draft

The Kentucky Badger was a three-year starter in Lexington. A versatile playmaker that lined up at safety and slot corner, Edwards opted to return for a senior season after he was a projected mid-round draft pick in 2018.

In his final year in Lexington, Edwards become just the second Kentucky defensive back to join the 300-Tackle Club. He finished his career with 318 tackles (19th in school history), 21 for loss, 23 pass break-ups and 10 interceptions. Edwards was a three-time All-SEC selection.

A significant portion of Edwards’ paycheck will be set aside for Skyline. The only thing the Badger loves more than hitting wide receivers is that sweet Cincinnati chili.

      Edwards, Snell and Big George are all from Ohio. Ohio and Florida are where we get most of our recruits. But Ohio is the leader.
