Pro Football Focus is high on Kentucky’s 2020 season

Pro Football Focus is known for its strict focus on statistics and analytics, rather than preconceived notions or powerhouse biases. It makes sense, then, the media group is one of the few that’s high on Kentucky’s program and future.

PFF has often included Kentucky’s team and even individual Wildcats in its discussions. The organization recently praised Lynn Bowden as a desirable weapon for an NFL team and Logan Stenberg as “offensive line coach porn.” Now, they’re highlighting the team once again.

Kentucky tied with Virginia Tech for the No. 2 spot in the nation at yards per attempt throwing at outside cornerbacks with an average of 5.69 yards, according to PFF’s analytics. Ohio State led the way with 4.85 yards.

During a season where the team dealt with massive turnover in Kentucky’s secondary, that doesn’t seem too shabby.

Even though the stats technically have the Wildcats tied with the Hokies, it’s pretty clear who would claim that tiebreaker, right?

This wasn’t the only time this off-season the folks with PFF have included a Kentucky connection on one of their lists. Two Wildcats, Darian Kinnard and Landon Young, came in at the top of the list for highest-graded returning SEC offensive tackles.

Hopefully his intense farm work is keeping Young in shape and ready to go for next season.

Max Duffy also topped an impressive list of returners.

Hopefully this team gets to see the field this fall. If they do, it’s shaping up to be another good one.

    In other words, it doesn’t matter what the media “think.” What does the evidence (i.e. stats/analytics) say?

    I’m really wanting to see this new group and our team this season. I honestly believe there’s more overall talent right now than there’s been since I was born. 1974. We’ve had some absolutely studs come through here no doubt, but the overall experience and talent is at an all time high. I just want to see some Kentucky Wildcats playing some FOOTBALL!!! Haha.

      Here’s to hoping for a fall season because I agree that this could be a special season!
