Did you know there’s a Kentucky boy in the NFL Draft?

Forgive me if this is common knowledge, but yesterday I learned there is a Kentuckian projected to get picked in the upcoming NFL draft. I should’ve known, but I didn’t.

Former Toledo quarterback Logan Woodside is projected to go in the mid-to-late rounds this May. Woodside holds the Toledo career record for passing yards, touchdowns, and passing efficiency; and ranks fifth all-time in MAC history with 93 touchdowns. He’s also 12th all-time in FBS history in career passing efficiency, which is pretty good too.

But above all that, Woodside is a product of the Bluegrass State, where he threw 41 touchdowns as a senior at Franklin County in 2013. He attended Anderson County his freshman and sophomore years of high school, before transferring to play for the Flyers his junior year, alongside former UK wide receiver Ryan Timmons.

Now we know who to root for in the draft. And by the looks of it, he’s a pretty hot name on the board.

      We did but he wanted to go to Toledo, he tried to get Ryan Timmons along with him but Timmons wanted to stay

      Looks like Timmons made the wrong choice.

      Toldeo is a crap hole, Timmons didn’t want any part of that place.

  2. Well then go Logan!

    UK with not any NFL ready talent……kinda explains the predicament then doesn’t it. SEC loaded just about every year with guys moving on to NFL and then we wonder why UK has a difficult time winning?
