How former Wisconsin Badgers performed in the 2024 Reese’s Senior Bowl

The Wisconsin football program sent just two alumni to the Reese’s Senior Bowl this year — versatile offensive lineman Tanor Bortolini and long snapper Peter Bowden.

Bortolini made some headlines throughout the week with his work during the open practices. Bowden, on the other hand, flew more under the radar as there isn’t much focus paid to long snappers.

In the game itself, which took place earlier today, the National Team defeated the American Team 16-7. Bortolini and Bowden both were victorious on the National Team, Bortolini seeing time at both guard positions and center while Bowden snapped for several kicking situations.

Bortolini’s value is in his versatility and experience at multiple positions, so consider it a positive sign that he played all across the line during the game. I’m no draft expert, but it appears many are applying a ‘sleeper’ tag to his status.

Both former Badgers are sure to be in action during Wisconsin’s NFL Pro Day later next month.
