MADISON (WKOW) -- Former Badgers linebacker Zack Baun likely won't have to wait long to hear his name called in the NFL Draft. Baun is projected by most analysts to be a first or second-round pick as one of the top linebackers in the class.

"It's an honor to be in company with so many great linebackers in this draft," says Baun. "It's really no surprise to me, all the work that I've put in and everything I've done to get to this point. I'm just ready to take that next step forward and understand that when draft day comes, it's the start of a new beginning and the grind never stops."

Baun cemented his draft stock with a stellar senior year. The first-team All-American notched 12.5 sacks. He followed that up with a solid Combine.

You will be able to watch Baun's name get called on ABC. All three days of the NFL Draft will be broadcast on WKOW. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. Thursday.
