Draft prospects

My Sporting News this week had a list of the top 99 prospects in the 2009 NFL Draft, including underclassmen, and three Badgers were listed.

-Travis Beckum was #30.

-Kraig Urbik was #63.

-P.J. Hill was #76.

The last one was surprising. Is anyone really thinking about P.J. coming out early? He's ranked ahead of backs like Ian Johnson of Boise State and Javon Ringer.

Beckum appears to be the second-ranked tight end, after Oklahoma State's Brandon Pettigrew. Urbik appears to be the second-rankid guard, after Oklahoma's Duke Robinson.
