In recent articles by both NFL.com and Mel Kiper Jr. Louisville is listed as a school that could produce a large number of NFL players for next year’s draft. In the article on NFL.com, here’s what draft analyst Chad Reuter had to say: "The Cardinals had 10 players drafted in 2015. They could face a similar exodus down the road, as their defense is loaded with prospects. Pass rusher Devonte Fields surprised some by returning to school and interior lineman DeAngelo Brown has loads of talent. Linebackers Keith Kelsey and Trevon Young are all-conference performers. Don't forget about cornerback Shaq Wiggins and safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, along with offensive playmakers James Quick, Jamari Staples, Keith Towbridge. There's also a slew of younger players ready to step up for star sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson. Louisville's going to be a favorite stop for NFL teams."
In an article by ESPN’s Mel Kiper jr, he has three defensive players listed as going into the draft. He ranks Keith Kelsey as the No. 3 ILB, DeVonte Fields as the No. 3 OLB, and Josh Harvey-Clemmons as the No. 5 S.
