Landon Young, Jamin Davis among highest-graded rookies in preseason

Landon Young’s career as a Kentucky Wildcat was a special one. The 6-foot-7, 310-pound offensive tackle out of Lexington appeared in 49 career games with 26 starts en route to All-SEC honors as a junior and senior. The three-time SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week helped lead UK’s offensive line finish as semifinalists for the Joe Moore Award, an honor given annually to the nation’s Most Outstanding Offensive Line, in 2019 and 2020.

At the conclusion of his standout career, the Lexington native was selected in the sixth round of the NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints.
