Fall camp has gotten off to a bit of a rocky start for a few Wisconsin Badgers.

Edwards is the anchor at linebacker for the Badgers, coming off a season in which he posted 81 stops, 11 tackles for loss and four interceptions while appearing in all 14 games.
Neuville can be a weapon in the receiving game this fall for Wisconsin, especially with the departure of Troy Fumagalli. Neuville caught nine passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns while playing in 12 games.
Smithback redshirted in the 2017 season.
