With a slew of Wildcats expecting to hear their names called in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft, it’s going to be a busy Pro Day in Lexington.
Thanks to a press release sent out earlier on Wednesday by the league, we now know when that day will come–Kentucky Football will host its 2021 Pro Day on March 31. UK will join Baylor, Boise State, Florida, LSU, Notre Dame, and Wake Forest as the programs that are set to host Pro Day on March 31.
Four UK players have been projected by multiple outlets to go within the first seven rounds: Kelvin Joseph, Jamin Davis, Drake Jackson, and Quinton Bohanna. Joseph and Davis, in particular, have seen their stock soar over recent months, with both viewed as likely first- or second-round draft choices. In fact, an updated mock draft put out by Matt Miller had the two ‘Cats going among the first 26 picks.
Outside of the obvious draft choices, this should be a great opportunity for the less-heralded Wildcat players to make an impression on various NFL franchises. Punter Max Duffy, offensive tackle Landon Young, defensive lineman Phil Hoskins, cornerback Brandin Echols, and edge defender Boogie Watson will all surely have plenty of eyes on them.
The NFL will allow just three representatives from each team to be in attendance.
