After a stellar season and an impressive combine, center Tanor Bortolini was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the 117th pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

After setting combine records, including one held by Philadelphia Eagles legend Jason Kelce, Bortolini saw his name shoot up draft boards. He ends up going in the 4th round, even before fellow teammate Braelon Allen.

Bortolini will now join a Colts offensive line group that will try to pave the way for former Badger running back Jonathan Taylor. Guard Quinton Nelson on the Colts is one of the best in the league so Bortolini will join an already talented line room.

Badger of Honor draft coverage will continue as some more Badger NFL hopefuls hear their names called.
