-Wisconsin Linebacker T.J. Watt was the first player off the board from the Badgers, as he was drafted to the Pittsburgh Steelers. While this caused some angst for Packers fans, Watt ends up in a great situation on a franchise historically great at developing linebackers. Watt is a Pewaukee, Wisconsin native.

-Wisconsin Offensive Lineman Ryan Ramczyk was taken just two picks later by the New Orleans Saints. Ramczyk, a transfer from UW-Stevens Point, is expected to add depth to a solid Saints offensive line. Ramczyk is a Stevens Point, Wisconsin native.
