So when will Cats fans get to a point of full investment in the first round of the draft? According to some experts, it may be as soon as next year.
TheDraftNetwork.com, who obviously specializes in drafts, currently projects Kentucky quarterback Will Levis as a top-10 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, going 6th overall to the New York Giants. That is not shocking when you look at his size, skill set, and toughness.
If the Giants meet Vegas’ expectations, then things did not go right with Daniel Jones in a make-or-break season. Levis is built like an action figure with terrific mobility and arm talent. Head coach Brian Daboll had a lot of success with a player like that in Buffalo.
But with a few years of remaining eligibility, Kentucky fans much have mixed emotions about Levis having enough success to make the team successful while also having enough room to improve to stick around for a while.

#Kentucky rapidly becoming a program like Iowa, Utah and Wisconsin -- outperforming the recruiting rankings on NFL draft weekend. Really good player development by Mark Stoops and his staff.— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) April 30, 2022
What a strong draft for Kentucky football.
Some of these guys have already signed free agent contracts, so the future remains bright for all of them.
Kinnard is set to have a long NFL tenure, and he finds himself in a great situation in Kansas City.
The National Football League seems to be changing before our eyes.
Spoiler alert: they are saying a lot of good things.
Getting 15 players selected in the same draft is bonkers, and I do not use that word lightly.
Yes, he will be playing behind Mac Jones, but what an opportunity he has in New England.
It looks like Tyler Herro will be ready for Game 1 against Philadelphia, where there is sure to be some Cat-on-Cat crime.
I know we all love to see Kentucky guys stay in state (but out of Louisville) when they transfer, but this seems to be a good fit for Broome.
It looks like KAT finally believes the Timberwolves are headed in the right direction.
