Of course...but moreso from big TE's who play like Jimmy Graham. Not so much the other way around where you have big WR'ers who lineup on the end of the LOS and block(though I guess Lazzard did that some last year).


Packer WRs didn't line up tight to the LOS, but there were a lot of plays where Kumerow and Lazard were in there intentionally for blocking purposes. Big 6-4, 6-5 WRs that command a CB to defend them, shove them around to seal the edge in running plays. Jones sprung a lot of outside running plays that way. I would assume Funchess was targeted for similar reasons. Plus St. Brown this year and MVS isn't tiny either.


They obviously didn't line up as an inline blocker, but the Packers often used a bunch formation with Lazard on the inside and they'd ask him to seal the edge as you say, but often blocking down on OLB'ers, or Ends as a TE would do. They also used him a lot to seal the backside when running different counters, especially when Tonyan was down last year.

Rucci to make his decision this Tuesday at 6:00. Right now the experts are leaning toward a Wisconsin commit. That would be a huge get for Bucky. In two years we would have a complete four star offensive line with two five star tackles.

Badgers line recruiting has been outstanding (if they land all of these guys). All these guys will be Redshirt Junior, sophomores, and Freshman together. How sure how they will all fit in on the line but a lot of versatility & depth! These are all 247 rankings.


2022 Class (no commitments but all very possible)
Joe Brunner ......6’5 265 #3 .#42 ..4 Star
Carson Hinzman 6’4 270 #4 .#116 4 Star
Billy Schrauth ...6’5 285 #17 #152 4 Star

2021 Class
Nolan Rucci ......6’8 295.#5.....#14....5 Star
JP Benzschawel 6’7 260 #16...#131 ..4 Star
Riley Mahlman .6’7 270 #17 ..#134 ..4 Star

2020 Class
Trey Wedig....6’8 320...#7. ..#83.. 4 Star
Jack Nelson ..6’7 273...#10..#104. 4 Star

2019 Class
Logan Brown .6’6 305 .#4 .#15 ..5 Star
Joe Tippmann 6’6 283 #26 #325 4 Star

Rucci committed to UW

The '20, '21, and most likely '22 offensive line recruits are all amazing.

This is incredible. 3 top recruits are all from out of state and the Badgers are building what looks like a dominant OL that hopefully will help recruit an elite RB. We already have Berger coming in and hopefully Edwards picks UW over 'Bama and some of the other elite programs.

Nab a guy who's from PA and had his list narrowed down to his home state PSU, Clemson...arguably thee elite program in the Nation at this second, Michigan and ND. Certainly helped that they snagged Hayden Rucci last year from ND to play TE...a move that was downplayed by some.

With Graham Mertz, a few studs at DE, OLB'er, a dominant OL...I know they're just recruits and of any program, the Badgers and their fans should realize how recruiting rankins aren't the end all, but it sure as hell helps to close the gap on programs like OSU...and who knows, as close as they've come to being in the playoff discussion at times, maybe this string of classes puts them over the top. I'd like to see them at least add a little more CB and WR'er help(doesn't need to match up with DB U over at OSU, but some threats) to round the classes out, but Badger football is looking at good as it has in a looong time in terms of recruiting. Could this be the best 3-4 year run they've ever had?

I would love some stud WRs for a change. There must be some serious negative recruiting based on the perception that UW runs all the time and never throws.

Recruiting has really been a remarkable surprise. There was (probably rightfully) a LOT of concern about Chryst as a recruiter, especially considering the successes that Bielema had while he was here. Chryst has, at a minimum, maintained that level of recruiting if not elevated it a bit. They're still not in the same stratosphere as Ohio State and the like, but they've been very good overall.

The OL recruiting has been great, but they really need to focus on DBs for the rest of 2021 and 2022. They have one safety and one CB for 2021, one CB in 2020, and one safety and two remaining CBs from 2019. I know WRs can and do flip to DB, and I wouldn't be surprised if one of Crawford or Roberts gets flipped to DB, but you need depth in football as injuries can and do happen.

Sticking to their core strengths is smart strategy. I can't blame WRs for not wanting to come to Wisconsin when you know they will constantly run the ball with that O-line. But Bucky always has the most success in years when they have enough of a passing game to prevent the D from stacking the box.

I'd think we'd be able to convince some WR'ers that with Mertz coming up at QB and a great running game, they'll get opportunities at Wisconsin.

But even if they're not elite recruits, we've seen the Badgers do plenty with lower ranked recruits. We've had top 10 teams when our classes were ranked in the 40's. I don't believe Cephus was a top prospect. And for that matter, I don't even think Jonathon Taylor was the top recruited Taylor we recruited that year.

Aaaannnnd, just like that the Badgers pick up a 3-star CB out of Colorado.

They have two 6 1 cornerbacks this cycle. If they can run and really play corner we are better matched for the taller wide receivers of Ohio State.

2022 4-star safety Braelon Allen of Fond du Lac has reclassified to the class of 2021. That, along with OLB Darryl Peterson getting a bump up to a 4-star rating, now means they have ten 4-star rating recruits and one 5-star.

The only downside is if Allen gets bigger he may not be able to stay at safety. Some recruiting services were already classifying him as an ILB, and they have a whole bunch of ILBs from the 2019 (2), 2020 (2-4, depending on where Herbig and Zachman end up) and 2021 (2 already) classes.

It will be fun seeing them go back to the old NASCAR package (1 DL, 4-5 LBs) on passing downs, and teams having no clue which LB is going to blitz from where.

I have seen him being classified as an OLB even if he has to become a LB the 2021 recruiting class just got a whole lot better.

He’s not just enrolling early, he’s graduating high school after his junior year.

Wow, that's a good get along with some other recent good WR pulls (especially compared to our normal level). Keep it going and get some higher ranked or more athletic CBs and maybe you can beat OSU more like 1/3 times instead of the current 1/10ish.
