Iowa’s Josey Jewell maybe the face of B1G linebackers, but lets not forget Northwestern’s Paddy Fisher.
The redshirt freshman has been phenomenal for the Wildcats this year. On the season, Fisher has totaled 86 tackles.
While that is an impressive statistic through nine games, if one were to look at the advance statistics, they would see that Fisher has truly been a stud this year.

According to Pro Football Focus, Fisher is currently fielding a 17.5 run stop percentage, which is the highest in the nation among inside linebackers this season. That’s very impressive.
The young linebacker will look to continue his hot season as Northwestern takes on the Purdue Boilermakers this Saturday.
