Mekhi Becton’s Draft Buzz Is Soaring


For the fifth time in the last seven years the Louisville Football program is expected to have some representation in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Offensive lineman Mekhi Becton is the only member of the 2019 Louisville roster to forgo his remaining eligibility and enter the NFL Draft.

According to the latest rounds of mock drafts, it seems Becton made the right choice.

The “Big Ticket” is projected to be a first round pick by five of the six updated mock drafts.

Outlet Round Pick Team 1st 4th NY Giants
ESPN 1st 10th Cleveland
Sports Illustrated 1st 18th Miami
CBS Sports 1st 18th Miami
Bleacher Report 2nd 50th Chicago
