Josh Paschal drafted by Lions in 2022 NFL Draft

Josh Paschal has been the heart and soul for the Kentucky Wildcats defense the past two seasons and will now get his shot at the next level after getting picked in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions, going 46th overall. He was selected just three picks after Wan’Dale Robinson went 43rd to the New York Giants.

From his journey as a cancer survivor to his high motor and versatility on the field, Paschal is a beloved member of the Big Blue Nation as the only three-team full-season team captain in school history.
