Once thought to be a first-round lock, Wisconsin offensive lineman Tyler Biadasz had to wait until Saturday to hear his name called. But with the last pick in the fourth round, the former Badger finally received the call.
Biadasz was taken with the No. 146 pick by the Dallas Cowboys. He’s the third Wisconsin player to be selected in the 2020 NFL Draft, following running back Jonathan Taylor (second round) and linebacker Zack Baun (third round).
Last season, Biadasz was the winner of the Rimington Trophy, presented to the top center in college football. He was thought to be a first-round selection early in the college football season but some inconsistent performances lowered his draft stock as the year continued. He could wind up being a huge steal for the Cowboys if he improves his consistency.
Biadasz started in all 41 games that he played in during his time at Wisconsin. He could easily challenge for a spot along the offensive line early in his career in Dallas if he continues to show improvement.
Biadasz helped pave the way for Taylor, who rushed for over 6,000 yards and 50 touchdowns during his career in Wisconsin. The center will have some really good running backs to block for in Dallas, too.
