Wisconsin has turned into a factory for high-quality offensive linemen, and offensive guard Tyler Biadasz is quickly emerging as the next example.
Interior linemen rarely get the kind of attention or prowess earlier in Round 1 of the NFL Draft, the Colts’ Quenton Nelson being a recent exception. And there’s a good possibility Biadasz winds up being the next great example.
The Cleveland Browns have a lot of offensive and defensive firepower, yet they’re surprisingly weak at the foundation pieces.
Chiefly, the offensive line.
Per Football Outsiders, Cleveland’s O-line ranks 25th in pass protection and only 21st in run support after three weeks of regular-season action. This has led to running back Nick Chubb holding the reputation of being a tough tackle, while quarterback Baker Mayfield has often found himself scrambling to create plays.
Biadasz would help solve a lot of those interior issues, as he’d be a plug-and-play contributor right out of the gate.
