UK’s 2017 commits and targets got Draft Day photoshops last night

The NFL Draft began last night, and the UK Football photoshop crew had some fun with the festivities, sending out custom “Draft Day” edits of each commit and recruit they’re going after in the 2017 class, starting with the top target, 5-star OT Jedrick Wills.

Here’s Wills’ teammate at Lafayette, 3-star QB commit Walker Wood:

4-star WR commit JaVonte Robinson:

3-star WR target DJ Edwards below:

3-star running back commit Michael Warren:

The photoshop crew wasn’t done there, churning out this riff of Drake’s cover for his new album, Views:

    That’s as close to the NFL as most of those players are going to get unless they show up on the wrong end of some other players highlight reels that are used on draft night.

    Rather humorous considering that despite all these big time blue chip recruits stoops was supposed to have brought in over the last few years, uk is projected to likely not have a single player drafted this year.

    I don’t think I would be bringing up the draft to recruits if I were them.

    Tell that to Bud Dupree.

    In the last 5 years you have had a whopping 7 players drafted.

    Yes…one of them is Bud Dupree, the first uk player to be drafted in the first round in 12 years.

    Bud was a Joker recruit, right?
    And he was also the only 1st Rounder taken in the last 15 years. Stoops has had very little success while at UK putting kids into the draft.

    Schools don’t matter as much as people think when considering being drafted or success rate in the NFL. North Dakota State, Houston, Memphis, and Louisiana Tech all had first rounders this year.

    Also, take a stat like most rushing yards this season in the NFL. Out of the top-20 performers, here are some of the colleges they attended: Tiffin University, Central Florida, Memphis, Tulane, Pittsburgh, San Diego St, Liberty, Central Michigan, East Carolina. That’s 45% Not exactly powerhouse schools.

    Bottom line is, if you’re good enough, the NFL will find you.

    So stop with the garbage comments, since you all don’t know what you’re talking about.

      But not many schools take solid talented players and turn them into non drafted players.

      Stoops is showing that he does not know how to develop talent. How else do you explain the alleged talent level at uk going into OT against the likes of EKU?

      If you don’t understand that matters then its you who does not know what they are talking about.

      Run along now.

      Naw, why don’t you run along to Thorobred lounge with the rest of the flat-bills. No one wants you here anyway. Stoops’ first year of recruits will just now be seniors. There is no way to even tell how his recruits have turned out yet. I’m sure your logic works just fine with all of your upper echelon Dixie Highway pals.

    You realize Stoops first full class of his own players will be RS Sophomores or true jrs this coming season. You’ll be absent when boom, baker, badet, garrett johnson, cj conrad, ware, elam, etc.. are ready for the draft. You can talk smack now because you’re riding the coat tails of charlie strong’s recruiting leftovers. Just remember how Petrino left your program last time. And how he left Arkansas, or the Falcons, or Louisville again in a year or so. Louisville is a complete dumpster fire of an athletics program that is only surviving because the NCAA is apparently a paper tiger.

      If you sincerely think ANY of those guys get drafted, you must be smoking some good good stuff….

      Agreed… Not sure what all the whining is about when just about all of his recruits aren’t draft eligible next year. And I would say atleast a couple of those guys get drafted. Only time will tell, the trolls are out in full force today. It is Friday so I suppose when ur on home incarceration in da ville there’s nothing better to do
