Two Wisconsin Badgers make Mel Kiper’s 2023 NFL Draft rankings

·1 min read

Earlier this week, ESPN’s NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper released his early top-25 rankings for 2023 prospects.

While no Badgers made the top 25, Kiper also put out a top-10 players by position list which included two Wisconsin stars. Redshirt junior Joe Tippmann was listed as the No. 6 center, while senior defensive lineman Keeanu Benton came in as the No. 8 ranked defensive tackle.

Both Benton and Tippmann will have the chance to raise their stock throughout the 2023 season as key parts of Wisconsin’s team. It’s anybody’s guess as to which other Badgers can play their way into the draft, but Wisconsin’s draft board could look very different come this January.
