The NFL’s regular season is officially over, but that doesn’t mean the year is over for one former Kentucky Wildcat.
The first rookie to do so in franchise history, Josh Allen of the Jacksonville Jaguars was added to the AFC Pro Bowl team earlier on Sunday.

After being drafted by the Jags with the seventh overall pick in the 2019 Draft, Allen has made an immediate impact as one of the league’s top young players on defense. He’s been arguably the top rookie on defense all season outside of 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa.
Allen recorded 44.5 tackles, 10.5 sacks (the most by any rookie), and two forced fumbles in his debut season. And he’s already been rewarded with a Pro Bowl spot because of it. It will be the first of many for the Kentucky legend.
Congrats to Josh! He joins Larry Warford as the only two Wildcats in the Pro Bowl so far.
