Joseph's best game with the Wildcats came against Tennessee, when he jumped the route on a short sideline pass in the second quarter, intercepting the pass and racing 41 yards for a touchdown. In that game, he also added a career-tying four tackles and one pass breakup.
The former Wildcat's NFL Draft stock began to rise throughout the off-season, especially after he posted impressive numbers at UK's Pro Day in March.
