All-Time Wisconsin Badgers NFL Roster

by carthage44 - 24 cards (Last updated on Oct. 29, 2017)


1. 2012 Topps #165 Russell Wilson


Starting Quarterback: Wilson only played one year at Wisconsin but it was a GREAT one. After being drafted in the 3rd round (due to his short size), Wilson is already a Super Bowl Champion, 3x Pro Bowler and has shattered the Seahawks records books. He currently plays for the Seattle Seahawks in 2017.

Backups: Randy Wright, Ron Vander Kelen, Jim Sorgi, Brooks Bollinger and Scott Tolzien

2. 1955 Bowman #8 Alan Ameche


Starting Fullback: A very short 6-year NFL career due to an Achilles tendon tear but still managed to be NFL Champion twice, a 4x Pro Bowler and scored the winning touchdown in "The Greatest Game Ever Played" during the 1958 NFL Championship game against the New York Giants.

Backups: Cecil Martin, Chris Pressley and Derek Watt

3. 2001 Topps #384 Michael Bennett


Starting Running Back: Bennett had a solid 10-year NFL career between the Vikings, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Chargers and Raiders. He made the Pro Bowl in 2003 after rushing for 1,296 yards and 6 total touchdowns. Know as one of the fastest players in the league when he played but injuries slowed his career.

Backups: Joe Dawkins, Ron Dayne, Terrell Fletcher, Melvin Gordon and James White

4. 1986 Topps #101 Al Toon


Starting Wide Receiver: Toon was another very good player that had his career cut short after 8 years in the NFL due to multiple concussions. Toon still managed to a 3x Pro Bowler, two 1,000 plus seasons and 3 career touchdowns.

Backups: Lee Evans, Tony Simmons and Alex Erickson

5. 2001 Topps #356 Chris Chambers


Starting Wide Receiver: Chambers was a steady 10-year NFL veteran with the Dolphins, Chargers and Chiefs. He recorded 540 receptions, over 7,500 receiving yards, 58 touchdowns and a Pro Bowler in 2005.

Backups: Donald Hayes and Jared Abbrederis

6. 2006 Upper Deck #268 Owen Daniels


Starting Tight End: This was a close call between Daniels and Dave Kocourek but Daniels gets the nod being a Super Bowl Champion, 2x Pro Bowler and over 5,500 receiving yards and 36 touchdowns.

Backups: Dave Kocourek, Stu Voigt, Pat Richter, Lance Kendricks and Garrett Graham

7. 1977 Topps #99 Mike Webster


Starting Center: One of the strongest positions that Wisconsin has produced but no real question here as Webster is a Pro Football Hall of Famer, 4x Super Bowl Champion, 9x Pro Bowler and his brain helped in the study to understand the full effect of concussions (see the movie Concussion staring Will Smith).

Backups: Jeff Dellenbach, Ken Bowman, Travis Frederick, Cory Raymer, Dan Turk and Al Johnson

I would say Melvin Gordon quickly making a play for the starting running back spot. Solid list, On, Wisconsin!

Elroy Hirsch should be on the list. Great list though.

The reason Hirch is not on the list is because he played only his first two years with Wisconsin before transferring to Michigan. I stuck with players that finished their college careers with the Badgers before moving onto the NFL. Crazy Legs was amazing!
