Wounded Warriors Project representative announces Broncos' seventh-round selection of Kary Vincent Jr. in 2021 draft
On behalf of the Wounded Warriors Project and the Broncos, Barry Pettit announces Denver's selection of LSU Tigers cornerback Kary Vincent Jr. in Round 7 of the 2021 NFL Draft with the No. 237 overall pick.
Vincent was a four-star recruit (top 25 nationally) after earning first-team all-state honors and winning two state titles in the 200-meter dash at Port Arthur Memorial High School in Houston. He played an important role in LSU's national title run in 2019, intercepting four passes and breaking up nine (also posting 47 tackles, two for loss) while starting nine of 15 contests. He started seven of 13 games played in 2018 (31 tackles, 1.5 for loss, one interception, six pass breakups) and started three games at nickel back as a true freshman (nine tackles, one interception in 11 appearances). Vincent starred for LSU in track and field, as well, running the lead leg for a 4x100-meter relay team that won SEC titles. Kary Vincent Sr. passed away in December 2018 at 49 years old. He played receiver at Texas A&M and in the Arena League. Kary Vincent Jr. switched to the No. 5 jersey (the jersey Vincent's father wore in high school) after running back Derrius Guice left LSU for the pros. Vincent opted out of the 2020 season. -- by Chad Reuter
