Montee Ball On NFL Draft


Madison (WQOW) -- Depending upon which mock draft you believe, former Wisconsin Badgers running back Montee Ball will probably be a second round pick.

Ball says while he'd really like to be a first-round selection, but all he really cares about is being drafted.  If the team that takes him happens to be the Packers, Green Bay's just fine with him.

"I have heard from Green Bay," says Ball, "talked to them a little bit, speaking of the Pro Day, when I had an opportunity to actually talk face to face with Ted Thompson, it's always a great conversation when I talk to him because he's such a down to earth guy, he's funny, he has some good humor to him, like I said, if I landed there that'd be a perfect fit for me, and like I said, we'll have to wait and see."

Most draft experts have Ball is rated as the third-best running back available.
