    Thanks for the list, Rob. Good idea to pin it to the top so it can be updated.

    Also interesting that all the players are from the 07 team and later, looks like we are just starting football. That is almost literally true.

    Let me know how I did on the years. I hurried through it, so if it needs corrections, let me know. The redshirt years come together sometimes.

    Excellent work Rob.

    Prospective recruits should view this as strong evidence that playing in the SEC gives you the best chance to develop as a player and make it to the next level. There is no substitute for playing against the best players in the nation week in and week out and the coaches at Kentucky are among the best at player development.

    Our 7-5 team from 2002 had a lot of NFL players. Hopefully the younger boys will stay longer in the NFL than those guys. Man, without probation that 2002 team was really special.

    Didn't he get cut from the Bengals?

    No offense, but I was surprised to see him make a NFL roster. Hardly got to know him at UK.

    I read on another board that John Conner has signed a 4 year contract with the Jets for $1.9 Million. Congratulations, and best of luck, John. You deserve it.

    My apologies for not being on top of things sportswise lately - but I looked at the 'Skins depth chart, then their roster, and did not see J Jarmon. Did he get cut or traded? Last I heard he had been making a name for himself with them.

    He's on the roster #90. He's also listed as 3rd team DE on the depth chart. He got a lot of PT last season before his season got cut short by a knee injury (according to the redskins player profile) Sustained a knee injury at Philadelphia (11/29) and was placed on Injured Reserve on November 30, 2009.

    Johnny Williams was picked up by the Broncos, and in last nights game had 5 tackles. Wesley Woodyard had 4. I hope the Broncos will keep Johnny, and think there is an excellent chance for him. I believe they lost their top linebacker with an injury that will put him out for most, if not all, the year.
    Micah Johnson is, indeed, with the Dolphins and made several tackles in their last pre season game.
    Best of luck to these guys, and all the other 13 former Wildcats now in the NFL.

    Johnny Williams was waived by the Broncos today. Hopefully, some other team will pick him up.

    Read on the Eagles forum that Lindley had a really good camp. Fans seemed pleasantly surprised.

    Be really cool if someone would post the weekly stats for the lazy like me. Just saying. You would get crazy board cred if you post it on the reg.

    Surprised to see Lindley inactive. He was getting good review out of camp. And happy for Corey Peters...He deserves it. Hope Micah, Alfonso, Sam Maxwell, as well as Andre Woodson get another shot to get on an active roster.

    Fran Curci put a lot e ky kids in the pros. He had seven AA on one team. Claybourne had a lot of great players as well. This list in good but not even close to having all of the greats on it. Hoe can we not have Jeff Vann Note on this list, Art Still, Jerry Blanton, Sonny Collins, Dreek Ramsey, Sam Ball, Dave Hardt, Frank Lemaster, Pete Gimmil, Roger Byrd, Doug Kotar, and on and on.

    This thread is just about current Cats in the NFL. I agree an all time list would be much longer but this is just designed to follow the ones currently in the league.

    I didn't watch the game but on the highlights I heard Lindley mentioned as recovering a critical fumble, so he must be playing. Who else is actually playing and for what teams, started to try to catch Jarmon the other night but he was out injured.

    Geez, guys, I thought this was a great idea, but my post is the last one in weeks. I don't follow the NFL at all any more except to try to follow ex UK players if it is easy, some of you guys must have SOME news about someone doing something good, Is Micah still on the practice squad, is Jarmon still injured, are Woodyard, Peters, Lindley, and Conner doing good, what happened to Johnson's and Tammy's surge, has Burton had any more tryouts, surely someone knows something, surely some of the marginal players will get another look somewhere.

    Tim has had a great year punting for around 44 + y/g. He is listed as the backup kicker and he is the only holder listed for PAt's and Field goals. Tim has worked himself into a good job for the future.[​IMG]

    This tracker is proof of our past woes in recruiting and how much we have possibly overacheived in the past 5 years. Just some food for thought and may stimulate some discussion. Here are the results for SEC schools on the tracker re: total number of pros. Hopefully I didn't miscount.

    SEC WEST
    1. LSU with 52 pros
    2. Auburn - 31
    3. Alabama - 28
    4. Ole miss - 28
    5. Arkansas - 19
    6. MSU - 17

    EAST
    1. Georgia - 42
    2. Slimmeessee - 41
    3. Florida - 38
    4. SC - 21
    5. Vandy - 14
    6. UK - 13
