5. Michael Deiter, Wisconsin 6-5, 322 (3)
Why Michael Deiter Is Here On The List: While he’ll work as a guard in the NFL, he was terrific with the Badgers at tackle and could even be thrown in at center if needed. there sin’t anything flashy, but he’s a very good, very sound blocker who can fit and play in any system.
He’s not quite as blasting of a blocker as you might think considering what he did for the UW ground game, but he’s more than good enough. He can also move a lot better than he’ll get credit for. He’ll never come up short with the motor.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Is there anything that stands out at an elite level? He might not be the perfect all-around guard prospect, but he’ll be the type that everyone gets interest in and wants. A big workout could move him into the top 50.
Bottom Line: You know those Wisconsin linemen who get into the league and hang around at a high level for a decade? Here’s another one. No, he’s not another Travis Frederick or Ryan Ramczyk, but he’ll stick as a good value get after the second round.
