Second Round (Pick No. 58)

Tyler Biadasz – IOL (Wisconsin)

This might be a bit of a reach at this point in the draft. However, the Vikings have to address the offensive line and the reach isn’t all that drastic.

Tyler Biadasz was a staple of the Wisconsin offensive line during the last few years. Wisconsin has had one of the best rushing attacks in the country since 2017 and Biadasz was a huge reason for that. His positional flexibility will grant him some looks at the next level as he can step in wherever needed on the interior.

Biadasz is an intelligent leader on the offensive line. He makes up for any physical limitations with a systematic approach that gets the line in place to make the right play.

He is a much better blocker in the run game than in pass protection, but he is an upgrade over current Minnesota guard Pat Elflein. If Dalvin Cook continues to lead the Vikings offense on the ground, it makes sense for them to overhaul the offensive line to power it up the middle.

There are some flaws for Biadasz. He switches up his stance and posture at times and he can be caught off guard. He is often stuck guessing on speed or power rushes and he ends up on the ground before the play is over.

Given the current standing of the board, the Vikings may be best off pulling the trigger on Biadasz if he’s still available in the second round. If they pass him up here, they may not find good interior offensive line help in the draft at all this year.
