The Baltimore Ravens drafted Wisconsin OT Ricky Wagner in the last pick in the 5th round, the 168th pick in the draft.

Heading into 2012, Wagner was thought to be a potential first round talent.  However, the way 2012 started with the issues on the offensive line and an early coaching change, Wagner saw his stock drop.  Wagner received all-Big Ten honorable mention recognition in 2010 and 2011 and was started most of the games he appeared in.

He joins C Travis Frederick and RB Montee Ball as Wisconsin players drafted this year.
