Former Badgers in the NFL Roundup: Russell Wilson Featured on SI

Lots of great content from Sports Illustrated and the SI team sites.

Well, does not necessarily have fall camp to cover at the moment, or really any Wisconsin fall sports. That being said, it is worth going around the National Football League once again to check out exactly what is going on with those former Badgers who are playing at the next level.

Here's just a sampling of the great content of Sports Illustrated and our team sites.

From Sports Illustrated: 'The Impossibilities of Russell Wilson' looked at our top five Russell Wilson performances last week. On Tuesday, SI's Conor Orr dives into the mind of the current Seattle Seahawks quarterback -- along with his trainer and quarterback coach (not the team's) -- to break down some of the amazing plays he has accomplished. This is a really fun feature at the physical training and mentality the former Badger has worked on.

Quintez Cephus, Detroit Lions continues to discuss (and praise) the former Badger receiver. In its "20 Takeaways" piece from the NFC North franchise's first week of practices, John Maakaron believes Cephus has the ability to make the roster. Not only that, but the writer also calls out the Wisconsin connection with current offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Raider Maven's Hikaru Kudo highlights the former Badger fullback's work with AdoptUSKids.
