Wisconsin Schedule & Analysis 

1
Braelon Allen, RB Soph.

It’s a bit much to suggest he saved the Wisconsin season, but he certainly carried the team for long stretches. The young 6-2, 240-pound workhorse earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors running for 1,109 yards and 12 scores – averaging over 100 yards per game – and caught six passes for 37 yards.

2
Nick Herbig, LB Jr.


The lone returning starter to a fabulous linebacking corps, the 6-2, 227-pound two-year playmaker made 83 tackles with eight sacks, 18 tackles for loss, five broken up passes, and with two forced fumbles in his first two seasons.

3
Jack Nelson, OT Soph.


Versatile, big, and very, very talented, the 6-7, 303-pound Honorable Mention All-Big Ten performer worked last year at right guard, but is expected to take over at left tackle after starting every game inside.

4
Keeanu Benton, DT Sr.


A true anchor for the defensive front, the 6-4, 316-pound Second Team All-Big Ten nose tackle made 44 tackles with 4.5 sacks and nine tackles for loss over his first three seasons.

5
Tyler Beach, OG Sr.


6-6 and 316 pounds, he’s a big veteran who earned all-star honors at tackle but will likely work at left guard this year. He’s a two-time All-Big Ten blocker.

6
Isaiah Mullens, DE Sr.


A longtime factor on the Badger line, the 6-4, 300-pound senior started half of last season, finishing with 23 tackles with two sacks in an Honorable Mention All-Big Ten campaign.

7
Logan Brown, OT Jr.


A superstar recruit, he started to rise up in 2020 and saw time throughout 2021. Now the 6-6, 310-pounder appears ready to become a major factor at right tackle.

8
Joe Tippmann, C Jr.


6-6 and 317 pounds, the junior has emerged at center and should be a mainstay once he returns after being injured late last year. he earned Honorable Mention All-Big Ten honors.

9
Chez Mellusi, RB Sr. 


The 5-11, 204-pound former Clemson transfer ran for 815 yards and five scores – averaging 4.7 yards per carry – and caught seven passes for 66 yards last season before suffering a knee injury.

10
Graham Mertz, QB Jr.

The 6-3, 216-pound former superstar recruit had his ups-and-downs so far, but has the experience to break through. He completed 60% of his passes in just over two seasons for 3,132 yards and 18 touchdowns with 15 interceptions. He also has six rushing scores.
