Kentucky Football All-Time Draft Picks

Updated: May 2

Draft picks? Football? That's right, this university is a two-sport school now and draft picks are becoming an annual thing between the football and basketball programs. In recent years, it's been more of football than basketball. So, do what you want with that.

After Kentucky had three players drafted in the 2023 NFL Draft, it extended the school's all-time draft pick list to 231 total, and 24 under Head Coach Mark Stoops. Will Levis' selection continued the school's streak of now 5 straight drafts where at least one of their players have been selected within the first three rounds.

In this year's draft, Will Levis went 33rd overall to the Tennessee Titans, Chris Rodriguez Jr. went 193rd overall to the Washington Commanders, and Carrington Valentine went 232nd overall to the Green Bay Packers. Before this year's event, UK had 228 previous draft picks. Here are the Stoops era picks, with the full all-time list link at the end.
