Bucky’s 5th Podcast, Ep. 20: Alec James, Garret Dooley discuss training for, journey to NFL

Two beloved Badgers discuss about their training and what’s ahead this weekend!

It’s NFL Draft Eve, and two Wisconsin Badgers--defensive end Alec James and outside linebacker Garret Dooley--await their fate and join us to talk about their journeys to the doorstep of professional football.

Here’s the full breakdown:

[1:00-19:20] Defensive end Alec James talks with B5Q about a multitude of topics, including training for Pro Day, his performance on that day, the East-West Shrine Game, where teams see him at the next level, as well as some conversation about his favorite movie, Kazaam, and the Shaq Diesel album (seriously).

[21:21-End of Show] Outside linebacker Garret Dooley, like many former Badgers looking to make their way to the NFL, has been a busy man since Wisconsin’s 34-24 win over Miami in the Capital One Orange Bowl on Dec. 30. He details his Combine and Pro Day training in Dallas, his Senior Bowl week that was, along with what positions teams are envisioning him to play in the NFL. Plus, he misses playing football, but we asked him, does his miss spring ball?
