04/30/2016 08:01 PM

The University of Kentucky had one player taken in the 2016 NFL Draft. He’s Linebacker Josh Forrest, and he was taken by the Rams in the sixth round with the 190th overall pick.

Forrest is 6’3” and 249 pounds, and is known for his speed and quickness. He had more than 200 tackles in his two seasons as a starter, but scouts had concerns about his overall strength. Still, many NFL personnel feel he has tremendous upside since he didn’t play football until his junior year of high school.
