7. Mark Tauscher (2000-10)

After a standout career at Auburndale High School, Mark Tauscher walked on at the University of Wisconsin in 1995, starting at right tackle as a fifth-year senior while blocking for Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne.

The Green Bay Packers took a flyer on the home-state product, selecting Tauscher in the seventh round of the 2000 NFL Draft.

He wound up starting 14 games at right tackle and manned the spot for much of the next decade-plus.

Tauscher went unsigned as an unrestricted free agent after the 2008 season, but returned to Green Bay four games into the following campaign.

Tauscher hurt his shoulder early in the 2010 season and was released just before training camp started in July 2011.

In retirement, Tauscher is an analyst for both the Wisconsin Badgers and Green Bay Packers radio networks.

In 11 seasons, he played in 134 games, starting 132 of them.
