Grading the NFL Draft immediately after it is over is a fool’s errand. The players have not even traveled to the new city they will be playing in nor have they participated in one single offseason drill and people want to grade their careers already.
Now, just because they are silly, and often wrong, doesn’t mean they aren’t extremely fun to look over and then shout about! I love the NFL Draft because I consider it to be more college football than pro and occasionally I get to sound smart because I’ve watched Mountain West games early Sunday morning and know that the QB from Hawaii that the Titans drafted is a white guy with dreadlocks.
Anyway, let’s see what people online thought about the four Badgers who were drafted this past weekend! Next up is center Tyler Biadasz.
- Yahoo! Sports gave the Cowboys an A, but didn’t have much to say about Biadasz. “Anae and Biadasz were well worth their draft slots. Take a bow, Cowboys. Can’t do much better than this.”
- SB Nation gave the Cowboys a B-, but didn’t mention Biadasz in their write up.
- Walter Football gave Biadasz an A+. “As if this draft couldn’t go worse for Eagle fans, they just watched their team allow the arch rival Cowboys to move up to this spot and select their replacement for Travis Frederick. Biadasz was one of the best players on the board, so this is another great pick for Dallas and another dubious move by the Eagles.”
- CBS Sports gave Biadasz an A. “Tremendous value pick for Cowboys, especially after Travis Frederick’s retirement. Biadasz has rare movement skills for the center spot and works well in run game. Just often out of control and off-balance in pass pro. Must get stronger too. Starter ability.”
- Pro Football Focus gave the Cowboys an A+. “Dallas’ dream draft continued into Day 3 when they got two guys for great value in Tyler Biadasz (87th-best prospect on PFF Big Board) and Bradlee Anae (130th-best prospect on PFF Big Board). He’s one of the most accomplished run-blockers we’ve graded at PFF, with grades above 80.0 in all three years as a starter. The step back in pass protection this past season is concerning, though. He’ll have a chance to make an impact early with Travis Frederick’s retirement.”
- SI gave the Cowboys an A+. “Lastly, the Cowboys in Round 4 went after another Wisconsin center, Tyler Biadasz, after their previous one, Travis Frederick retired suddenly earlier this offseason. Biadasz was a three-year starter in a Badgers offense that had a dominant run game.”
