Four Badgers Appear In Latest NFL Mock Draft

MADISON, Wis. – With the decision of David Edwards to make the leap to the NFL and Tyler Biadasz to return for his junior year, the list of entrants for Wisconsin in the 2019 NFL Draft is complete.

In the latest mock draft from USA Today, four former Badgers are listed as being selected in the first three rounds. Draft eligible players have until January 14.

David Edwards – No.33 to Arizona

Being the first pick in the second round would probably be a thrill for Edwards, who could improve his stock at UW’s pro day and in individual workouts. A shoulder injury zapped some of his dominance, but Edwards is a quality run blocker who has strength and can manipulate defenders in the ground game.

Beau Benzschawel – No.79 to Atlanta

A consensus All-American for Wisconsin this past season, Benzschawel will compete in the Senior Bowl in Mobile at the end of the month. His ability to be a sound run blocker is his biggest strength.

Michael Deiter – No.84 to Seattle

A workhorse for the Badgers through his career, Deiter projects more as a guard in the NFL opposed to center and left tackle. Deiter accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl, and the direction of his stock will depend on how he handles some some good interior rushers and one-on-one pass protections.

T.J. Edwards – No.88 Detroit

An instinctive defender who is a physical presence in the tackle box, Edwards finished last season with 113 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and three interceptions last season, improving his tackles and TFLs from the season before. Edwards’ longevity, tackling and play-making ability will make him attractive prospect.
