After a wildly entertaining and trade-heavy opening night, Day 2 of the NFL Draft is here. This year’s first round ended without any former Kentucky Wildcats hearing their name called. However, there are a few that are expected to come off the board tonight.
Darian Kinnard, Josh Paschal, Luke Fortner and Wan’Dale Robinson (in no order) will likely find their NFL home. Kinnard, previously projected a first-round pick, will be able to step in immediately and help his team’s offensive line. Paschal, an outstanding player for many seasons at Kentucky, has an incredibly high football IQ and should thrive in any situation he lands in. Fortner played exceptionally well last season and we’ve seen what happens to star quarterbacks when the team’s offensive line depth isn’t very good. And, of course, Robinson put together a record-breaking season for the Wildcats receiving attack. He’ll undoubtedly be an exceptional asset to whichever team selects him.
Dare Rosenthal, Marquan McCall and Yusuf Corker could very well hear their names called over the weekend as the later rounds arrive. You can find ways to watch tonight’s second and third rounds, as well as the weekend rounds, here.

There are about 1,000 more of these on your timeline this morning.
Another wide receiver gets paid.
Here we go again.
Have to assume he’s all but gone.
The Ravens have zero wide receivers.
Have a feeling he’ll score a lot of points for Kentucky.
He was the only QB to go in Round One.
The Wildcats are sure glad to have him.
