Kentucky had two draft picks this season, a first-rounder in Bud Dupree, and a fourth rounder in Za’Darius Smith. But there are several other players who have been signed as undrafted free agents or been invited to try out at team mini-camps.
Undrafted free agents signing with teams
Darrian Miller — Miller has apparently been signed by the Cleveland Browns. Most NFL observers expect Miller to be moved from tackle to guard, as he just doesn’t have the range to be a tackle in the NFL.
Javess Blue — Blue was picked up by the Green Bay Packers and will join former Kentucky and current Green Bay star Randall Cobb.
Ronnie Shields — Shields signed with the Seattle Seahawks.
Invited to camp
Braylon Heard, who was at Kentucky only one season, has been invited to the Cleveland Browns mini-camp to try out for the team.
Demarco Robinson has also been invited to try out for the Cleveland Browns.
Ashely Lowery has reportedly been invited to try out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.:

- TraVaughn Paschal has been invited to try out for the Baltimore Ravens.
This puts a wrap on the NFL Draft coverage for this season. We wish all our former players moving on to the next level all the success they can handle. The NFL is a very unforgiving place, but some, if likely not all, of these guys will stick, and some of them possibly for a fair number of seasons.
