Bill Nagy OL Dallas Cowboys
Wisconsin offensive lineman generally have decent success in the NFL, and since the Cowboys missed out on the two top offensive line prospects the Badgers had, Gabe Carimi and John Moffitt, they figured they'd take a shot at a later round prospect.
Bill Nagy became the 252nd pick in the 7th round when Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys gave his phone a ring. Nagy played in only 16 games prior to his senior year in 2010, starting only three of them his redshirt sophomore year in 2008. In 2010 he was voted to the coaches honorable mention All-Big 10, but I'm assuming he didn't have a position since he played everywhere. He played snaps at just about every single offensive line position, and even started a game at tight end against Minnesota.
Nagy was rated as a free agent in this years draft class, but turned some heads with an impressive pro day at Wisconsin.
