Listen for this Kentuckian's name to be called in the NFL Draft this week
Logan Woodside, a quarterback who played at the University of Toledo and Franklin County High School, was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals with the 31st pick of the seventh round during the the NFL Draft on Saturday.
“I’m just feeling a lot of excitement and enjoyment right now,” Woodside said. “I’ve always wanted to be able to play near home, and to be drafted by the Bengals is a dream come true.”
Woodside set career records for passing yards (10,514), touchdowns (93) and passing efficiency (162.87) while at Toledo. He played at Franklin County in the 2011 and 2012 high school football seasons.
“We really feel like he’s a good young prospect,” Bengals Coach Marvin Lewis said. “(He) has an opportunity to come in here and compete as one of the backup quarterbacks. We feel like he has a lot of upside.”
