Per usual, Wisconsin will be contributing highly-rated offensive line prospects to this year's draft, and NFL clubs must be noticing a trend. It seems like every year the Badgers have at least two solid offensive line prospects eligible for the draft, most of whom have panned out well at the next level.

Although there may not be a Joe Thomas-caliber player in this year's draft, at least two Badgers should be drafted within the first two rounds.

Unfortunately for Wisconsin fans, there are plenty of talented Badgers in this year's draft, especially on the offensive line. While this may leave next year's season in doubt, at least Badger fans will have something to watch for the next three days.

The first Badger projected to be taken is guard Kevin Zeitler, and he should be taken towards the back end of the first round. After Zeitler, center Peter Konz will likely be drafted sometime in the second round, and Nick Toon and Russell Wilson should follow, with Toon going in the fourth or fifth round.

Towards the end of the draft, Badgers like Aaron Henry and Bradie Ewing should be selected in the seventh round.

What all this means is simple: There will be plenty of intrigue for Wisconsin fans throughout the entire draft, and that's always a good thing.

I'll be constantly updating this slideshow to keep you informed on where your favorite Badgers are drafted, in case you miss part of this event. Trust me, the pleasure is all mine.
