NFL Draft: Big Ten Recap

If you're like me, when NFL draft day comes, you're initially feeling a mixture of excitement and intrigue. Who will the first couple of picks be? What will my pro team do (since I'm a Bears fan, the answer is usually exactly the opposite of what they should do)... and, finally, where will my school's players end up?

So, the first round comes.... your attention is riveted. It's exciting! It's shiny! It's all ESPN will talk about! 

And then the second round.... you pay attention a little less. Maybe you perk up if you hear that a "stud" player who fell out of the first round has finally been drafted, or if some completely illogical / blockbuster trade is announced.

The third round arrives... now you're really off doing other things. If you hear your pro team mentioned or your school, you glance at the TV, but, the rest of it... meh...

By the time the 4th through 7th rounds come, you're attitude is most likely somewhere between "Wait... this thing is still going on?? I only turned this channel on to see Baseball Tonight!" and "Wake me up if something exciting happens..."

Well, lucky for you Big 10 fan, we're here to help. Hit the link and scroll on down for a complete recap of which Big 10 players have been drafted, and where they'll be heading. Whether you missed a round, or, well, the entire thing, we've got you covered.
