Joe Thomas to be inducted in to College Football Hall of Fame

Before Wisconsin native Joe Thomas heads to canton, he'll make a big stop in Atlanta.

The former Badgers' offensive tackle was one of 13 players named Monday as 2019 inductees to the College Football Hall of Fame.

He was named first-team all Big Ten during his junior and senior seasons.

He also won the Outland Trophy as the nation's best interior lineman and was named a unanimous All-American in 2006.

He was drafted by the Browns with the third pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.

Thomas will be eligible to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2023.
