3. TOP WISCONSIN PLAYERS

Best Wisconsin Offensive Player

RB Jonathan Taylor, Jr.
He’s had to work way too much with over 600 carries in his first two seasons, and he’s GOT to solve his fumbling issues inside the red zone, but if he stays in one piece, and if he chooses to stay for his senior season, he’ll probably end up breaking Ron Dayne’s NCAA all-time rushing record – he’s currently on track to do it.

The Doak Walker winner has the breakaway speed, decent power, and he’s now experienced enough in the Badger system to be even more patient and effective. When the quarterback situation became a problem late in the year, he took over and did even more – the 321-yard, three-score day against Purdue was special – but for the team, the more he can be reserved a bit and be closer to 18ish carries rather than 25 a game, the better.

2. C Tyler Bladasz, Jr.
3. OT Cole Van Lanen, Jr.
4. QB Graham Mertz, Fr.
5. OT Logan Brown, Fr.

Best Wisconsin Defensive Player

LB Zack Baun, Sr. 
A bit under the radar compared to the splashier Badger defensive stars over the last few seasons, the 6-3, 225-pounder bounced back from the foot injury that cost him all of 2017 to make 63 stops with 2.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles for loss. A great recruit for the program in 2015, he’s athletic, experienced, and now he’s the leader of a reloading D.

2. DE Isaiahh Loudermik, Jr.
3. LB Chris Orr, Sr.
4. FS Scott Nelson, Soph.
5. DT Bryson Williams, Soph.
