Kevin Zeitler started the Badgers off on the right foot Thursday night when we was drafted no. 27 overall in the first round of the NFL Draft. Zeitler, the second guard and fourth lineman taken in the draft, made it a second consecutive year and third time in the last six years that a Badger lineman was taken in the first round of the draft. Zeitler, a first-team All-American his senior year, was ...
