Former Kentucky Wildcats in the NFL: AFC Preview


Steve Johnson #13
Buffalo Bills
Wide Receiver
6-2 207lbs
6th year

Heading into his sixth season with the Bills and overall, Johnson is looking to put his name back on the map after a somewhat sub-par season in 2012. He did have roughly 1,000 receiving yards, but only six TD’s. Johnson has his eyes set on more this season than just a touchdown, though. The big prize is a win against the New England Patriots, and Johnson is very confident that they can be defeated. “I don’t think they have anybody to stop me. For real. I think we have guys in the receiver room that are as good as I am, if not better. I just have that confidence in my teammates and in myself.”

Jacob Tamme #84
Denver Broncos
Tight End
6-3 230lbs
6th year

In his second season with the Broncos, Tamme has not missed a step since he left Indianapolis. Part of that is due to having Peyton Manning as your quarterback, but Tamme has been very consistent as a second string player. We can look to him getting some playing time this season also, especially after putting up over 500 receiving yards in 2012.

Wesley Woodyard #52
Denver Broncos
Linebacker
6-0 233lbs
6th year

Woodyard has had an impressive preseason to follow a tremendous 2012 season. Last year, he finished with 117 tackles, 3 interceptions, and a forced fumble. The Broncos are going to move him to MLB, Woodyard’s former position at UK. Experts say if he can stay healthy, he could surpass his previous total of 117 tackles. Woodyard could potentially be a bigger threat at MLB, as he can attain more sacks from that position. Either way, it is looking to be a great season if you’re Wesley Woodyard.

Danny Trevathan #59
Denver Broncos
Linebacker
6-1 240lbs
2nd Year

Trevathan is seen somewhat as Woodyard’s protégé on the field. He had a successful rookie season, mounting a total of 33 tackles. Trevathan could be a potential starter this season, taking over Woodyard’s position at weaskside LB with Woodyard playing MLB this season.

DeQuin Evans #69
Cincinnati Bengals
Defensive End
6-2 265lbs
2nd Year

Evans is still listed on the Bengals roster, but it’s unclear for how long he’ll be there. It was announced last week that the DE was suspended without pay for the first half of the season, a total of eight games. It was discovered that Evans violated the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. He made a total of four tackles in the Bengals preseason games.

Winston Guy #22
Jacksonville Jaguars
Safety
6-1 218lbs
2nd Year

Winston Guy was recently acquired by the Jaguars earlier this week, leaving a good scenario in Seattle for the struggles of Jacksonville. Guy doesn’t have a team with the spotlight this year, but the Jaguars are a young team and it gives Guy a chance to compete for a starting position.

Other players that were on teams, but did not make the team:
Myron Pryor (New England Patriots)- Cut from team in May after consecutive injury-plagued seasons.
