MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - UW-Whitewater offensive lineman Quinn Meinerz had his dreams come true during the third round of the NFL draft on Friday night when he was selected by the Denver Broncos as the 98th overall pick.

The 6-3 320 lb lineman out of Hartford, WI jumped up teams draft boards after his outstanding performance at the Reese’s senior bowl. Viral videos of him working out in the woods in Canada as a makeshift weight room also made the world fall in love with him while also showing his grit to get better.
