Former Badger center Tyler Biadasz not participating in NFL Combine drills
Tyler Biadasz won’t be participating in on-field drills this week in Indianapolis, as the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine gets underway.
On Wednesday, Biadasz revealed that he will not be participating in the drills this week because of a surgery he underwent in the offseason. The former Wisconsin star center said he had arthroscopic surgery on the AC joint in his right shoulder following the 2019 season.
Biadasz is considered to be one of the best centers — if not the best center — available in the 2020 NFL Draft. He’s considered to be a late-selection in the first round come April.
Biadasz says everything is going well and he’s expected to be able to participate in on-field drills shortly before the draft commences in a few months.
“It wasn’t necessarily an injury,” Biadasz said, according to PackersNews.com. “I never was limited. It was just a lingering issue. Not really an issue, but just a little pain here and there. I went in after the season, just saw a specialist from L.A. and …we just don’t want anything lingering on to OTAs or rookie camp. So I just got it done.”
Biadasz was an All-American for the Badgers last season, on an offensive line that blocked for Jonathan Taylor, who piled up over 2,000 rushing yards for a second-straight season. Wisconsin finished the year 10-4.
