With the NFL draft right around the corner, several of Kentucky’s NFL hopefuls are bouncing around the country to visit with potential employers.
Josh Allen will spend Monday and Tuesday in Oakland with the Raiders organization, according to Adam Schefter. Many mock drafts have Allen going to Oakland with the fourth overall pick in next week’s draft, so he could be getting a taste of what life will be like in the very near future (until the team moves in 2020).
Mike Edwards spent Monday morning in Cincinnati with the Bengals and then popped up in New Jersey for a meeting with the Giants. Edwards, a third/fourth-round projection, was born and raised in Cincinnati and my guess is he would love to keep living near Skyline Chili.
Edwards’ former teammate in the secondary, Lonnie Johnson, met with the Titans in Nashville on Monday. He too is looking at a third or fourth round pick.
Then there is Bunchy Stallings in Denver with the Broncos. Stallings will likely have to wait until after the draft to sign with a team as a free agent.
The draft begins next Thursday, April 25, in Nashville.
