The Wisconsin pipeline to the National Football League is as strong as it has ever been, especially along the offensive line.

What there haven’t been many of, though, are first-round picks. The last two came two picks apart and four full years ago: T.J. Watt at No. 30 and Ryan Ramczyk at No. 32.

The former has not yet received his second NFL contract. The latter just signed a new deal with the New Orleans Saints that made him the highest-paid right tackle in the NFL.

Ramczyk has played in all but one game since entering the league in 2017, earning first-team All-Pro honors after his best season in 2019.

The former Wisconsin walk-on is locked into a deal with the Saints that includes five years, $96.2 million and $60 million guaranteed.

I guess the offensive line recruiting script is already written for Paul Chryst, Joe Rudolph and the Wisconsin football program.
