Larry Warford was the only UK football player to be drafted this year (65th overall by Detroit), but he's not the only player whose NFL dream has come true.
Matt Smith texted Cats Illustrated on Saturday night to say he'd signed with the Atlanta Falcons.
Smith was a three-year starter at center for UK who entered the season on the Rimington Trophy watch list as the nation's top center. He started 34 games over his career, all of which came alongside Warford.
Other UK players who signed free agent contracts:
-- Martavius Neloms (Detroit Lions)
-- Collins Ukwu (Minnesota Vikings)
(This list will be updated as we learning of new signings)
