Summary: Wisconsin has been a factory for NFL offensive linemen and running backs since Barry Alvarez built the Badgers into a dominant ground program. The head coach has changed some, but the offensive linemen and running back talent has stayed consistent. Biadasz will continue that tradition in the 2020 NFL Draft, as he should be one of the first centers drafted and is a candidate to be a plug-and-play starter in the NFL.
Biadasz is good fit as a pass blocker for the NFL. Last year at Wisconsin, he handled one-on-ones in the passing game, showing a strong anchor to handle bull rushes and the strength to sustain his blocks through the play. Biadasz plays with good leverage to bend at the knee, and that allows him to bend but not break on bull rushes. As a pro, heavy nose tackles and fast speed rushers could give him some issues, but he offers more one-on-one pass-blocking ability overall than many centers who need guard help.
As a run blocker, Biadasz routinely opened holes with strength and showed impressive quickness and athleticism to pull around the tackle and hit blocks in space. He fires well to the second level and gets downfield quickly. While Biadasz has quality strength, against NFL defensive tackles, he will not be a road grader who overwhelms tackles. Biadasz is a scrapper who has a physical attitude and blocks through the whistle. Biadasz should be a plus run blocker at center as a pro.
Biadasz is a polished blocker who could play quickly in the NFL. Some team sources feel he does not project to move to guard, not seeing that versatility. They feel he is a center only. However, Biadasz could be a solid starter with a long career, so he is worthy of being a second- or third-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Player Comparison: Jeff Faine. Biadasz reminds me of Faine, who had a solid NFL career for the Browns, Saints and Buccaneers. Biadasz is a little bigger, but they are similar well-rounded players who are effective in both phases but limited to center only.
