Badgers impress NFL scouts at Pro Day

Packers General Manager and Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin were among the attendees at Badgers Pro Day on Wednesday.

Several Wisconsin players put up impressive performances. Running Back Corey Clement improved his 40-yard dash time from 4.68 seconds to 4.54 seconds, while Linebacker Vince Biegel improved his 20-yard shuttle time.

Projected top-round picks Ryan Ramcyzk and T.J. Watt did not do much on the field, but both spent time talking to scouts.

Watt, in particular, emphasized the importance of being an all-around player.

“You got to be versatile. Versatility is what’s going to get you on the field, and it’s going to be hard to take you off of the field. So I’m willing to play special teams. I played special teams in college so I tell these coaches – you’re going to have to find a way to get me off of the field. I’m going to try to do it all,” he says.

The NFL Draft starts on Thursday, April 27th and will go through Saturday, April 29th in Philadelphia.
