Is Wisconsin the O-Linemen U?
There are always conversations about which college football program produces the best players at which positions, but Wisconsin has been as good as any at churning out top offensive linemen.
Over the last 30 years, Wisconsin has produced the most Round 1-3 NFL Draft selections in the Big Ten and they’re tied for first in total picks and first round selections.
With former Badger offensive tackle Joe Thomas (drafted in 2007) set to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in August and center Joe Tippmann being selected in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft and Tyler Beach signing with the Texans, some of the best offensive linemen have come through Madison over the years.
Other Badger linemen in the league include Ryan Ramczyk, Rob Havenstein and Kevin Zeitler amongst others.
Although it may not be sexy, Wisconsin needs to be given the recognition it deserves for molding some of the best offensive linemen in the country.
