Josh Forrest has learned where the next phase of his life will begin. The former Kentucky linebacker was taken in the sixth round of the NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams. He was the fifteenth player taken in round six. It’s been quite a journey to get this point, a journey that saw Forrest start his career as a wide receiver.

Jeff Fisher is a defensive coach, he always has been. Hopefully Forrest will go out there and carve out some playing time for himself whether it be on special teams or situational scenarios.

As it turns out Josh Forrest won’t be the only rookie member of BBN heading out to Hollywood. Former offensive tackle Jordan Swindle has signed a free agent deal with the Rams as well.

Playing both tackle positions at UK speaks to his versatility. If all goes well Swindle could be paving the way for Todd Gurley this fall.

Congratulations to both of these former Wildcats.
