Madison- A dozen former Badger football standouts tried to impress NFL scouts at Wisconsin's Pro Day.  Linebacker Chris Borland and receiver Jared Abbrederis expect to hear their names called during May's draft.  They hope some impressive workouts help move their names up on teams' draft boards.
Wisconsin also kicked off Spring Football- but second year head coach Gary Andersen said they're changing the name to "March Football"... taking a playful shot at Mother Nature and the recent cold streak.  Coach Andersen said he likes what he saw in day one.
"A lot of new kids.  Thought they practiced well.  They hustled, made mistakes.  There's a lot of 'em but they kept on digging through it.  That's really what you're looking for in the first day.  For the most part I would say they're prepared.  I think they came out here and fought through a long practice- a longer practice than they're used to.  That's a grinder day for the kids."
Football in March? Yes, please
