Milwaukee Native Drafted by the Cowboys

By WTMJ Staff. CREATED May 12, 2014

Milwaukee native Ben Gardner was one of the lucky few to be drafted by the NFL this weekend.  As he took his first meeting with the Dallas Cowboys, his father, and former 620 WTMJ General Manager Carl Gardner gave Gene Mueller and Greg Matzek an inside look at what a potential player goes through during the draft process.  Carl says Ben's bags were packed...he just didn't know where he was going.
