Indiana hasn’t been to a bowl since 2007. Kevin Wilson is getting the Hoosiers closer, going from one, to four, to five wins in his three seasons in Bloomington. A postseason trip almost happened last year, if not for tough losses to Navy and Minnesota. Just like last season, Indiana will be propelled in 2014 by one of the Big Ten’s top offenses. But will the defense be better?
The 2014 NFL Draft is officially in the books, which means it’s time to look ahead to who will replace the Big Ten’s freshly minted pros this fall. Thirty players were drafted, including four first-rounders, so there are plenty of big shoes to fill.
Thirty former Big Ten stars were selected in the 2014 NFL Draft. There were four Day 1 picks, 12 Day 2 picks and 14 Day 3 picks. Which player landed in the best situation, though? That’s what the BTN.com team was wondering. See its picks, plus Big Ten fans’ Twitter nominations, in this post.
