Today is a big day as Kentucky Football’s draft hopefuls will look to make a lasting impression on NFL scouts as the NFL Draft begins in less than a month.

Today is Kentucky’s Pro Day, and while it lacks the shine of other Pro Days at Alabama, Clemson, Georgia or Ohio State, Kentucky has several draft prospects participating who will hear their name called next month.

Kelvin Joseph, Jamin Davis, Drake Jackson, and Quinton Bohanna have all been projected as draft picks by numerous outlets. Max Duffy figures to be in contention for an NFL roster spot. Landon Young, Phil Hoskins, Boogie Watson, and Brandin Echols could see their draft stock rise with solid performances.

With no NFL Combine this year, Pro Days held at schools across the country hold extra importance. Scouting opportunities leading up to the draft are limited, so this will be one of the last opportunities for NFL personnel to get a look at these Wildcats.

You can watch a stream of the Pro Day activities on UKathletics.com or on SEC Network +. Dick Gabriel and Kash Daniel will be hosting the show, which is set to begin at 11 a.m. ET.

Tweet of the Day

This team goes undefeated.
