2022 NFL Draft preview: Wisconsin linebacker Jack Sanborn

With the NFL Draft set to take place April 28-30, some of Wisconsin’s best players from last year’s team are preparing for what could be a defining moment in their lives.

Some Badgers will eventually hear their name called in one of seven rounds of draft picks, while others will sign on as preferred free agents. Others may start their careers in the XFL or give up on their professional football dreams altogether.

With that in mind, we at All Badgers will feature some former Badgers who have a chance of being selected in the NFL Draft over the next two weeks. For each player, we’ll feature who they are, their stats and number of Sports Tests, where they could be picked, and some of the teams that could make sense.

Today we focus on the star linebacker Jack Sanborn.
