New Orleans Saints

Zack Baun – Linebacker: the Badgers leader in sacks last season, was drafted in the third round in the 2020 draft.

Ryan Ramczyk – Offensive Tackle: has been in the league for just three seasons and is already considered one of the best tackles in the country.

New York Giants

Ryan Connelly – Linebacker: drafted in the fifth round of the 2019 draft. He has appeared in four games for the Giants and had 10 tackles, a sack, and two interceptions.

Kevin Zeitler – Offensive Guard: played and started in 15 games last season for the Giants.

Philadelphia Eagles

Corey Clement – Running Back: had a great rookie season, catching a touchdown in Philly’s Super Bowl victory, but has struggled with injuries since and has not made much of an impact since. Early word is that Clement is returning to his old form, which is good news for him and the Eagles.

T.J. Edwards – Linebacker: the Badgers’ former All-American linebacker had a nice rookie year and is a candidate for a starting spot on Philadelphia’s defense this year.

Pittsburgh Steelers

T.J. Watt – Linebacker: a rising star in the NFL and one of the best pass-rushers in the league. Had 14.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles, and two interceptions last season.

Derek Watt – Fullback: signed a deal with Pittsburgh after spending his previous four seasons with the Chargers. He’ll join his brother T.J. in Pittsburgh.

Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson – Quarterback: one of the best players in the league. He was recently ranked number two in the NFL Player’s Top 100 rankings, behind just Lamar Jackson.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jack Cichy – Linebacker: has had trouble staying healthy in his two years in Tampa Bay. He has played in 10 career games.

D’Cota Dixon – Safety: was making some impressive plays during his rookie training camp but suffered a season-ending injury before the season started.

Dare Ogunbowale – Running Back: primarily a third-down back. Had just 11 carries last season but had 35 receptions for 286 yards in 16 games last season.
