Former Badgers LB Zack Baun was drafted by the New Orleans Saints with the 74th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

New Orleans moved up in the third round after a trade with the Cleveland Browns.

Baun was projected to be a first round pick by most scouts and draft analysts but fell to the Saints in the third round.

In his senior season, Baun recorded 12.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 1 interception, and 75 total tackles in 14 games.
