Joseph, a Baton Rouge, LA. native, played in 11 games with LSU as a true freshman, making 12 tackles. He transferred to Kentucky after the 2018 season, but due to NCAA transfer rules, he was forced to sit out the entire 2019 season.

As a starter for the Wildcats in 2020, Joseph recorded 25 tackles and four interceptions in nine games. He ultimately sat out the team's final two games of the season in order to prepare for the draft.

With Joseph and Parsons' signings over the last two days, the Cowboys have now agreed to deals with nine of their 12 draft picks. Fourth-round picks linebacker Jabril Cox and offensive tackle Josh Ball, fifth-round pick Simi Fehoko, sixth-round picks Quinton Bohanna and Israel Mukuamu, and seventh-round pick Matt Farniok have already signed their contracts.

Third-round picks - defensive tackle Osa Odighizuwa, defensive end Chauncey Golston and cornerback Nahshon Wright have yet to sign their rookie contracts.
