Wisconsin football: the linebackers are young, talented and ready to prove themselves

Over the past, oh I don’t know, half decade or so, the Wisconsin Badgers have produced quality linebackers that have gone on to the NFL. T.J. Watt, Ryan Connelly, T.J. Edwards, Zack Baun, Jack Cichy, Andrew Van Ginkel, Chris Orr, Joe Schobert...well, you get the idea. The funny thing about some of these guys is that they did most of their damage in one big season.

The model for linebacker success at UW has been a “next man up” deal.
