Tyler Biadasz

Height: 6’3

Weight: 321 lbs.

 

2019 Dave Rimington Trophy Winner (Nation’s Best Center)
2019 Outland Trophy Finalist
2019 Unanimous First-Team All-American

 

Three year starting offensive center for the University of Wisconsin.    Consensus three-star recruiting prospect.  Played on the defensive line in high school before switching to interior offensive line at Wisconsin.  In this scouting report, we’ll breakdown his mechanics and evaluate his future as an offensive lineman in the NFL.

 

 

What I Like:

Pull-Block Athleticism

Tyler Biadasz consistently shows good athleticism to get around the offensive line and execute blocks when asked to pull.  As you can see on this play, Biadasz does a good job of getting in front of the running back to deliver a fantastic lead block.

 

 

What I Dislike:

Ability to Pickup Late Blitzes

A late blitz on this play appears to cause Tyler Biadasz to panic.  As this play begins, Biadasz is able to establish leverage against the inside linebacker.  However, as the outside linebacker makes his break for the pocket, Biadasz panics and tried to block both defenders.  Had Biadasz stuck to his original assignment, and let Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor do what Jonathan Taylor does, the outcome could have been different.

 

 

Where I’ve Seen Improvement:

Pass Protection 

It should be noted that this was against a South Florida team that finished with a 4-8 record.  With that being said, Tyler Biadasz does a tremendous job here to establish leverage and anchor his body on this play to give the quarterback a solid pocket to work from.

 

 

Overall Breakdown

Has solid height and adequate weight for the offensive line.  Displays solid speed and acceleration for the position.  Shows to have good awareness to release from blocking assignments and attack live balls when fumbled.  Has solid use of hands to punch and stun defenders in pass protection.  Has a solid ability to anchor in pass protection.  Displays solid ability to recover and re-establish anchor.  Has a solid ability to establish and maintain leverage to open running lanes up the middle of the offensive line. Displays a good ability to steer defenders to open running lanes.  Shows to have good quickness to get off line of scrimmage to execute pull blocks.  Has a good ability to drive through defenders on pull blocks.  Displays a solid ability to get to and execute second-level blocks.

Has adequate balance to remain upright through contact.  Displays an adequate ability to remain poised on late blitzes.  Shows to have an adequate ability to absorb initial contact and remain balanced.  His ability to maintain leverage throughout play is adequate.  Displays an adequate ability to execute pull blocks.

 

2020 NFL Draft Projection

Late-First to Early-Second Round

While Tyler Biadasz graded out as the nation’s top center by Pro Football Focus, his 2019 film wasn’t quite as good.  Biadasz still remains as the top interior offensive lineman on my draft board.  Will struggle against larger defenders early in his career.  Teams that attack him with multiple blitzes could find success.  Has the athleticism and ability to play guard at the next level, but must overcome shortcomings in his game to start long-term in the NFL.
