Two former Wisconsin Badgers standouts, fullback Austin Ramesh and safety Natrell Jamerson, are among a few from last year’s squad looking to make a splash in the NFL. They elaborate upon the pre-draft process and what’s ahead in this week’s episode!
Here’s the full breakdown:
[00:10-17:10] Ramesh discusses working out for two teams--the Arizona Cardinals and the Detroit Lions--along with visiting the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers (and meeting former ESPN football personality and Raiders head coach Jon Gruden). He also reflects upon his impressive Pro Day performance, training and what’s ahead for Alec Ingold and Wisconsin fullbacks.
[17:30-24:00] Some quick news updates with Nick Nelson’s injury, more Badgers visiting NFL teams and the newest Wisconsin men’s basketball players in Tai Strickland and Joe Hedstrom for the class of 2018.
[24:00-42:00] Safety Natrell Jamerson tells B5Q which NFL teams he has spoken with, worked out for and visited (there is quite the list), along with where those teams see him playing at the next level. He also looks back on his MVP performance in the East-West Shrine Game and the longest workout he’s had for an NFL franchise (seriously, this is crazy).
[42:00-End of Show] We answer our one mailbag question before I wrap up the show: what will I be doing now that the spring game is canceled?
