CBS Sports dropped its first full seven-round NFL Mock Draft today and it’s not good news for Kentucky. There were zero Wildcats listed for the 253 possible selections, which would be the first time since 2007 that Kentucky didn’t have a player drafted.
Five-six years ago this could be a massive deal in terms of recruiting but luckily Kentucky has had success in the draft as of late. Most notably Bud Dupree gave Kentucky a first round pick since Dewayne Robertson went No. 4 to the Jets in 2003. Personally, I think Josh Forrest and/or Cory Johnson could sneak into the draft keeping the streak alive. The NFL Draft starts April 28, so hopefully we start hearing their name pop up.
