Tyler Biadasz (Wisconsin)


  • Height: 6-foot-4 | Weight: 310 pounds

Tyler Biadasz fits the typical profile of a Wisconsin offensive lineman as he was a three-star recruit per 247sports and originally came to Madison to play defensive line. After redshirting his freshman season, Biadasz was moved to the offensive line and he became the starting center for the Badgers over the next three seasons.

One of Biadasz’s biggest strengths is his agility as Pro Football Focus graded him at 87.1 in zone schemes. With the ability to get to defenders before they can do anything, Biadasz attacks and doesn’t let go, clearing out lanes for Wisconsin’s devastating running game.

The concern with Biadasz has been his ability to pass protect. He only allowed one sack in his redshirt junior season, but his PFF pass-blocking grade decreased from 83.7 as a redshirt freshman to 70.5 in 2019. There also seems to be balance issues, which may give Viking fans flashbacks to the failed Mike Remmers experiment.

But as an agile, smooth lineman that excels in clearing lanes for the run, Biadasz could be a solid mid-round pick for Minnesota that eventually develops into a starter at guard.
