After breaking nearly every rushing record in Kentucky football history, running back Benny Snell has declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.
As soon as the college football season wrapped up, the internet erupted with draft prognostications. While Benny is used to himself and his teammates being underestimated, he seems particularly salty about Bleacher Report’s draft rankings.
Matt Miller of Bleacher Report listed Nick Bosa as the best overall player in the draft, and that did not seem to sit well with Snell. He tagged who he believes is the No. 1 prospect, Josh Allen, in a tweet and noted that the list is “a joke bro.”
Allen is ranked as the No. 3 overall player and the No. 2 edge rusher behind Bosa. Allen obviously believes he should be taken first in the draft. It seems that Benny agrees.
Perhaps Snell is really upset with being listed as the No. 10 running back in the draft, which would push him to a very late round. He is also listed as the “Biggest Faller” in the running back group, which is Miller’s guess that he goes lower than many project.
As for other Wildcats, CJ Conrad comes in as the No. 8 tight end and Mike Edwards is the No. 8 safety, listed as the “Biggest Riser” in that group.
There are a few other Kentucky Wildcats that could have their name called during the NFL Draft, but it is great to see so many names on the top of these position lists. Even if Benny is not satisfied with the list from Bleacher Report, Big Blue Nation should be excited that this conversation is even happening around this program.
