NCAA Football: Kentucky at Florida Gainesville Sun-USA TODAY NETWORK

Though it was an up and down year for the Kentucky Wildcats football program, the Wildcats indeed have something to look forward to: the NFL Draft. In the latest mock draft from Matt Miller, he has two Wildcats being selected in the first round of this spring’s draft.

First is CB Kelvin Joseph, where Miller has him going 23rd overall to the New York Jets. Second is LB Jamin Davis going 26th overall to the Cleveland Browns.

Of course the draft is more than a month away, and so many trades/transactions can happen between now and when Joseph or Davis are picked. Between the shuffling of quarterbacks across the NFL and teams shifting to a more offensive-focused league, it’s hard to accurately predict when/where Davis and Joseph will go.

However, regardless of what team they end up with, it’s an excellent sign to see both Wildcats be mocked in the first round of the latest NFL mock draft from Matt Miller.
