University of Wisconsin fullback Bradie Ewing has been drafted by the Atlanta Falcons with the 157th selection in Round 5 of the 2012 NFL Draft. Ewing caught 28 balls for 328 yards and 2 touchdowns in his Wisconsin career, but is most notable for being the lead blocker for the Badgers phenomenal run heavy offense.
Ewing was projected as the third best fullback in this 2012 NFL Draft class, and could be in a position to push for a starting spot on the Falcons offense.
Ewing is the third offensive player selected by the Falcons, as two offensive lineman have been selected to help build up Atlanta's offense for the 2012 season.
