The Kentucky Wildcats have revamped their football program over the last few seasons. Last season, they watched Lynn Bowden get drafted and became a useful weapon in the NFL.

Now, they’ll get to see a few more hear their name called in the 2021 NFL Draft. Kentucky only has two players consistently mentioned in mock drafts. Those two are linebacker Jamin Davis and cornerback Kelvin Joseph.

Coming off a Gator Bowl win this past season, Davis and Joseph were both pivotal parts of their defense.

Davis is coming off a 102-tackle season. He also had two interceptions and a defensive touchdown.

With Joseph out in 2019 after transferring from LSU, the star cornerback returned and had four interceptions in 2020.

Now, let’s dive into some high-profile mock drafts that feature these two.

NFL.com’s four-round mock draft

Jamin Davis No. 26 to Cleveland

Cleveland has a solid all-around roster because of previous administrations’ ability to grab extra picks and the current leadership’s ability to maximize those selections. Davis brings an athleticism to the Browns’ linebacker corps that it has lacked. He could be a Fred Warner-type defender in the middle,” Chad Reuter wrote.
