The Kentucky Wildcats' streak of draftees has reached nine years in a row after linebacker Josh Forrest was just taken by the Los Angeles Rams in the 2016 NFL Draft!

Forrest is the first Wildcat to be taken in the 2016 Draft, tabbed by the Rams in Round 6 with the 190th overall pick. Forrest joins Bud Dupree, Za'Darius Smith and Danny Trevathan among others as recent Wildcat defenders who have been drafted to the NFL.

Best of luck to Josh Forrest in LA!
