In his career at Wisconsin, Tanner McEvoy did it all.
He was a safety, a receiver, a running back and a quarterback at different points, checking almost all the boxes.
On Sunday, he checked two more boxes in his football career as he recorded his first NFL catch and first NFL touchdown — both on the same second-quarter play for the Seattle Seahawks.

McEvoy hauled in a 42-yard pass from Russell Wilson to give the Seahawks a 14-3 lead over the New York Jets.

In his career at Wisconsin from 2013-2015, McEvoy played in 38 games with 21 starts. He had seven interceptions, 11 pass breakups and 74 tackles on defense, rushed for 706 yards and eight touchdowns, caught 10 passes for 109 yards and completed 65 passes for 709 yards and five touchdowns.
He spent his first season, a redshirt year, at South Carolina before attending Arizona Western Junior College in 2012 and joining the Badgers in 2013.
After his senior season in 2015, McEvoy went undrafted and signed with the Seahawks as a free agent.
Update: Wisconsin football just showed some love to McEvoy on Twitter.
