Badgers LB Jack Cichy drafted in the 6th round by Bucs

Less than a year after season ending ACL surgery, former Badgers linebacker Jack Cichy was drafted 202 overall in the 6th round of the NFL draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saturday afternoon.

Cichy played in 24 games with 11 starts. He tallied 120 tackles, 15.0 TFLs, 6.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 6 pass breakups.

Cichy was a starter at inside linebacker in 2016 before suffering season-ending pectoral injury vs. Iowa on Oct. 22. He was unable to play as a senior in 2017 after suffering knee injury during preseason camp.

Cichy served in coaching role in each of final two seasons after suffering those injuries. He was part of winningest senior class in school history, posting four-year record of 45-10 that included 29-5 mark in Big Ten play and 11-1 record in rivalry games.
