The 2020 NFL Draft will be a great event for teams to start building for their future. Here is the Tyler Biadasz 2020 NFL Draft profile.
Position: Offensive Guard/Center
Size: 6-foot-4, 314 pounds
Class: Redshirt Junior
2019 stats: First-Team All-Big Ten
While he was just a three-star recruit, Biadasz was able to join the very long line of successful Wisconsin offensive linemen. Through his time as a Badger, Biadasz was able to develop into a solid interior line prospect.
His first year in Madison, Biadasz redshirted. As a redshirt freshman in 2017, he started all 14 games at center, earning Freshman All-American honors along the way. Wisconsin won 13 games, including the Orange Bowl over Miami. He returned as the starting center in 2018 and was a First-Team All-Big Ten performer. The Badgers won eight games and capped off the year with a win in the Pinstripe Bowl over Miami. As a redshirt junior, Biadasz won the Rimington Award as the best center in the country. Wisconsin won 10 games, but lost in the Rose Bowl to Oregon to finish the year.
Biadasz has had a solid career at Wisconsin, as he reached the highs of individual performance and some team success. Now, as one of the best centers in the class, Biadasz is likely going to be picked in the second or third round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Biadasz is a very experienced run blocker and is successful in that regard. He has the ability to move bodies out of the way and get to the second level when called upon. His blocks are executed well most of the time, making him reliable. His blocking helped Jonathan Taylor become one of college football’s all-time leading rushers in just three seasons.
He has a great motor, toughness and leadership, which all come together to provide a good teammate. Biadasz never stops looking for work and plays to the whistle. His effort shows how much dedication he has for the game. A team that takes Biadasz will be taking a player that leads by example.
His ability to make reads at the line of scrimmage is impressive. He has great awareness and IQ, which allows him to read what a defense is doing and change the protection for the offensive line. Teams should have no hesitations about starting Biadasz from day one, as he has a lot of the mental aspects of the game down.
While his size is fine for a center, Biadasz has below average length for the position. He has 32 1/4-inch arms, which will limit him in the NFL. Defenders will be able to beat him by extending their arms and Biadasz won’t be able to match them. The lack of length will make it harder for Biadasz to sustain blocks.
He does not have great athleticism. Biadasz was able to overcome that with his technique, football IQ and desire, but that may not fly in the NFL. Biadasz lacks great quickness and movement skills. He will be outmatched in more than a fair share of competitions against NFL defensive linemen.
His strength is not great and is under question after a subpar 2019 season. The amount of time that he was able to sustain blocks was subpar in 2019. His frame looks like it should be able to carry more good weight, so he’ll need to spend time adding strength in his first few years in the NFL.
