We know about Danny Trevathan and Winston Guy getting drafted by the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks respectively. What you may not know is that four other Wildcats who went undrafted are also joining NFL teams as free agents. From UKAthletics.com:

Former University of Kentucky football stars, Anthony Mosley, Matt Roark, Ronnie Sneed and Ryan Tydlacka, have signed as undrafted free agents to begin their dreams of playing in the National Football League.

Mosley agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers; Roark signs with the New England Patriots; Sneed will join the Detroit Lions; Tydlacka will head to the Philadelphia Eagles organization.

Of course, that's the easy part. The hard part will be sticking with the teams, and that's what all six of Kentucky recent players with NFL aspirations will be working hard to do over the coming months. So as of right now, Kentucky has six guys from last year's team either drafted or signed as undrafted free agents. Congratulations to each and every one of them

For what it's worth, I think Tydlacka has a decent chance of making an NFL roster as a punter. Ronnie Snead also seems to me to be the kind of player that could stick. I'm not as sanguine about Mosley and Roark, although some of the more knowledgeable football types may want to weigh in on the prospects of these six guys.
