On Thursday afternoon, Pro Football Focus College tweeted out their ranking for the top three Wisconsin edge rushers with the highest pass-rush grades in a season and several very familiar Badgers made the cut.

Wisconsin outside linebacker Nick Herbig led all Badgers’ edge rushers with a 91.4 grade after a phenomenal season in 2021. Herbig finished last year with 61 total tackles, nine sacks, four pass deflections and a forced fumble. The rising junior was ranked ahead of former Wisconsin and current NFL outside linebackers, Joe Schobert and T.J. Watt.

After a phenomenal sophomore season, it will be exciting to see what Herbig can do with the keys to the Badgers’ defense this season.
