Draft Day by Bill Ferrario

It was the 2001 NFL Draft. I was a 6'3” 315 lb. offensive guard from the University of Wisconsin. The University which just four years earlier began the tradition of Offensive Line U. I didn't know at the time how long the tradition would last and that I would become a part of it. I had just finished up a dream of a college career. I started every game of my college career (only the 3rd player in B1G Ten history to accomplish this), blocked for a 1,000+ yard rusher every year and most of all blocked three years for the All-Time Rushing Leader and 1999 Heisman Trophy Winner Ron Dayne. The stage had been set for great things to come.
