Its truly impossible to dislike JJ Watt, just a hard-working guy who busts his ass on every play and loves to smack the crap out of anybody with the ball.
Not to mention he was heavily involved with charities and even started his own before being drafted. He and some of the other Badgers would visit children's hospitals a lot.
Alright Garrett Graham... puts Texans up 7-3. He was a great TE at Wisconsin. Daniels, Beckum, Pedersen as well.
While I'm on my Badger kick little Jim Leonard is from a town called Tony, WI that is about 1 hour northwest of me. Town of only 105.
Really became known with his return ability and play for the Ravens in the playoffs a few years back. Was also a safety for the Jets and started with the Bills. Think he's with Denver now.
Steelers Hall of Famer Mike Webster (one of best centers ever) is from Tomahawk about an hour north of me as well. LOL, sorry got me started with Graham.
