The NFL Draft is officially over, and the Kentucky Wildcats had two players selected as Lynn Bowden went in the 3rd round No. 80 overall to the Las Vegas Raiders, and Logan Stenberg was selected in the 4th round No. 121 overall to the Detroit Lions.
Every season we see a lot of players that go undrafted get immediately picked up by teams as free agents.
Not long after the draft, a former Cat was picked up.
Defensive end T.J. Carter took to Twitter to announce that he was picked up by the Arizona Cardinals.
I’m undrafted and i love it. I faced a lot of adversity last year but it prepared me for what needs to get done. My fire is even bigger and i can’t wait to get down to @AZCardinals !!— Tj Carter (@TjCarter_) April 25, 2020
Carter had 26 total tackles in his senior season with six tackles for loss and two sacks to bring his career total to 71 tackles, 12.5 for loss, and six sacks.
I would fully expect to see other Cats get picked up in the coming days with them having a shot to make the final rosters for Week 1.
