33. Terrell Fletcher-RB-(1991-1994)-Fletcher was one of the steadiest and yet flashiest backs to play for Wisconsin in the last 30 years.

He ranks 5th on the all-time rushing list with 3,414 yards and 25 touchdowns (7th).

He was drafted in the 2nd round of the NFL draft by the New England Patriots.

31. Chris Chambers-WR-(1997-2000)-Chambers garnered two time All-Big Ten mention (2nd team as a senior) despite playing his career on run dominated teams.

He is a premier receiver with the Miami Dolphins.
