We will try and keep this list as up to date and accurate as possible, but please feel free to alert us when something is wrong. We know you commenters are shy about correcting us lmao. As always, it is important to note what Owen often mentions: most players for Wisconsin DON’T leave school early although no one would blame them for doing so.

NFL Draft decisions

  • Keeanu Benton, junior, NT: leaning towards staying, but waiting for NFL Draft evaluation

UPDATE, 1/13/22, 9:30 p.m. CT:

It’s official, Benton is back!

  • Leo Chenal, junior, ILB: he will wait until after the bowl game to make a decision

UPDATE, 1/3/22, 6:20 p.m. CT:

If there is nothing written about their decision, it means they haven’t publicly given an answer yet. Now that spring practice has started, we have just assumed the players that didn’t make a public announcement are moving on since, well, they aren’t on the spring roster.

* means that they are a senior that hasn’t used their redshirt year
the player(s) in BOLD are the newest update
