Earlier today, Wisconsin Badgers head coach Paul Chryst went on Matt Hayes and Brett McMurphy’s show to share insight as to how the Badgers have developed so many great offensive linemen.

When he was asked about it, Chryst said, “You know obviously it’s something we’re proud of and I’ve been fortunate to be around a lot of those guys and you know it’s a credit to every one of those individuals. I think we’ve had really good offensive line coaches, there’s no doubt about that. But what I really think helps too, is that when you’re in a room and you’re a younger offensive lineman and you see what a really good one does day in and day out, I think it’s a lot of lessons that can be learned.”

The Badgers have had 25 linemen be on NFL rosters since 2000, according to Hayes before he asked Chryst the question.

They also have 15 All-American offensive linemen since 1990 according to Hayes.

We’ll see if both of those numbers go up over the next year but by all indications, they likely will.
