MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) -- There are now two more Badgers playing in the NFL. 

Linebacker Joe Schobert and fullback Derek Watt were both selected in day three of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Schobert, the 2016 Big Ten Linebacker of the Year, went off the board as the first pick of round four to the Cleveland Browns. The former walk-off turned scholarship player registered 13 1/2 sacks last season. 

Watt, the little brother of Texan's superstar J.J. Watt, will be taking his talents to San Diego, where former Badger RB Melvin Gordon plays now. 

Wide receiver Alex Erickson has signed as a undrafted free agent with the Cincinnati Bengals.
