Four Badgers total...

...and all in the third round.

Defensive end Matt Shaughnessy went 71st overall, to the Raiders (as Kevin mentioned earlier). Linebacker DeAndre Levy went 76th overall, to the Lions.

Hope you guys enjoyed the winning seasons you had at Wisconsin.

More: OT Kraig Urbik went 79th overall, to the Steelers; and TE Travis Beckum went 100th overall, to the Giants.

Congratulations, guys, and best of luck. And good luck to the other Badger hopefuls who didn't get drafted - free agency awaits!

UPDATE - after placing only 6 players in the first two rounds, the Big Ten placed 9 in the third round alone: 25% of all third-round picks.
