MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The big guys are front and center at Wisconsin. Running back Jonathan Taylor probably wouldn’t be drawing attention as a Heisman Trophy candidate if not for the holes opened by the Badgers’ offensive line during his record-setting freshman season. The line is tough, physical and agile in typical Wisconsin fashion, and […]
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Strong at its core, Wisconsin’s defense is undergoing a makeover on the edges. Coach Paul Chryst needs new starters at both defensive end positions, both outside linebacker positions, and both cornerback spots.

CHICAGO (AP) — Success for the Wisconsin Badgers is about as ho-hum as their leader’s personality. All Wisconsin does is win under no-nonsense, coach-next-door Paul Chryst.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shaquem Griffin came back. The crowd loved it. Players in attendance not selected in the first two days of the NFL draft usually head out of town before the fourth through seventh rounds.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Quarterback desperation means NFL teams can’t pass on taking a passer — even a flawed one — in the draft.
