Four Badgers Selected in Round Three

Since I kind of abandoned the Badgers this season, I don't really have a lot to say on the topic, but I wanted to pass along the Badgers that were selected in the 2009 NFL Draft.

Round 3, Pick 7 (71 overall) - Matt Shaughnessy - DE - Oakland Raiders

Round 3, Pick 12 (76) - DeAndre Levy - OLB - Detroit Lions

Round 3, Pick 15 (79) - Kraig Urbik - OT - Pittsburgh Steelers

Round 3, Pick 36 (100) - Travis Beckum - TE - New York Giants

With all of these guys being picked in round three, I fully expect all of them to make their respective rosters, as well as an impact with their new teams. I can really see Beckum excelling in a New York Giants jersey, and I look forward to seeing how that develops. Not a bad day for Wisconsin. has the list of all the Badgers that were eligible for the draft, and six of them are left to be signed as undrafted free agents, including RB P.J. Hill. So far, FB Chris Pressley has been signed by Cincinnati, while OT Andy Kemp has signed with the Vikings. Kemp would sign with the Vikings, because we already know he is a d-bag. Why do I make such a rash judgement about a college kid? Well, when you celebrate a win over Cal Poly like you just won the Rose Bowl, then you're automatically considered a d-bag for life.

Good luck to all the Badgers that were drafted, and that are still looking for a life in the NFL. Except for Kemp, of course.
