Where are your favorite Badgers going?

NCAA Football: Cotton Bowl-Wisconsin vs Western Michigan Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

After 253 players heard their names called in Philadelphia this weekend, the 2017 NFL Draft is now officially over.

Teams selected three Wisconsin Badgers in the first 108 picks. The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted outside linebacker T.J. Watt with the 30th overall pick in the first round on Thursday, while offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk followed two picks later to the New Orleans Saints at No. 32 to conclude the first round.

No Badgers were drafted in the second or third rounds, but with the first pick of the fourth round, the Green Bay Packers selected outside linebacker Vince Biegel on Saturday.

The other remaining eligible players—most notably running backs Corey Clement and Dare Ogunbowale, along with cornerback Sojourn Shelton—are now joining teams as undrafted free agents or being brought in for tryouts with organizations.

Follow B5Q’s Badgers tracker below for more news as it happens. As a reminder, though we’ve confirmed or reported a couple of would-be signings, each individual NFL team announces its crop of undrafted free agents and those are official. If there are changes, we’ll let you know.

[Update on April 30, 12:27 p.m. CT: Per a source, wide receiver Robert Wheelwright is heading to the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent, not the Carolina Panthers. We’ve also updated our tracker below to include Jason Galloway’s report on Bart Houston receiving a tryout with the Oakland Raiders.]
