Kentucky wide receiver Garrett Johnson, kicker Austin MacGinnis and linebacker Courtney Love found new homes after UK was the only school in the SEC to not have a player drafted this year.

Johnson tweeted shortly after the 2018 NFL Draft ended that he will be joining the Chicago Bears. Love tweeted that he will be joining the Cleveland Browns for rookie camp. MacGinnis announced that he will be joining the Chicago Bears for rookie camp.

One other Kentucky seniors in Cole Mosier (offensive tackle) is still listed as part of the top undrafted talent of this year's class.

Kentucky is only one of three Power Five conference schools that had zero players selected in the last two NFL Drafts. Duke and Iowa State are the two other schools.
