Two Kenosha natives picked in the NFL Draft's first round

 They first gained attention as stars and teammates for the Kenosha Bradford Red Devils, but now Melvin Gordon and Trae Waynes will be taking their talents to opposite NFL sidelines this fall.

Waynes, a cornerback who starred at Michigan State University, was taken 11th overall by the Minnesota Vikings. That means he will take on the hometown Packers twice, the first time on November 22nd in Minneapolis and then later in the season finale on January 3rd at Lambeau.

Gordon, the star running back for the Wisconsin Badgers, was drafted 15th overall by the San Diego Chargers. Packers fans will get their chance to see him play at Lambeau on October 18th when San Diego comes to town. You can see that game on CBS 58 starting at 3:25 p.m.
