Where Does the Wisconsin Badgers Aaron Henry Fit in the NFL Draft?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Besides being one of the best interviews in college football, the Wisconsin Badgers Aaron Henry is also a talented prospect at the safety position.

The senior Henry will enter the NFL Draft this spring and as of now ranks as a top-five safety. With a strong showing prior to the draft, he could go as high as the second round, but shouldn’t go any lower than the third or fourth round.

Wisconsin Badgers are the Best Team in the Midwest By Far

There’s only one team you can call elite right now in the Big Ten, and it’s not the traditional powers- the Ohio State Buckeyes (things will get worse before they get better) or Michigan Wolverines (decent start, but they always start fast, only to fade later in recent years). It’s not the two conference teams beyond the fringes of Big 10 country either-  Nebraska Cornhuskers (defense looks terrible right now) and Penn State Nittany Lions (big time issues at quarterback, plenty of other places).

And the best team in the Midwest is certainly not Notre Dame (you can commence laughing now).

The only program that could compete for a national title this season is in Madison, Wisconsin.

Wisconsin 49, Northern Illinois 7: Rapid Reaction


The Soldier Field Showdown II quickly turned into the Soldier Field Beatdown as the #7/#8 Wisconsin Badgers (3-0) flashed their offensive dominance in a 49-7 win over the Northern Illinois Huskies (1-2).

It’s time to start calling QB Russell Wilson “Mr. Efficient” because the guy was almost perfect while completing 23 of his 32 passes for 347 yards, three touchdowns and just one late interception. Wilson also became the ninth quarterback in franchise history to eclipse the 300 yard mark and has transformed himself into a real Heisman candidate.

Aaron Henry and the Badgers Know Where They Stand on Defense


The Wisconsin Badgers 51-17 thrashing of the UNLV Rebels was full of offensive highlights, particularly from QB Russell Wilson in his Camp Randall debut. While Russell received most of the talk and deservedly so, the team’s defense put forth a rather average performance.

When asked to “grade” his squad’s performance, sophomore linebacker Chris Borland answered “I would give us a C. We didn’t do anything terribly bad, but we can tackle better.”

Senior safety and team captain Aaron Henry concurred and attributed some of the defense’s struggles to an unfamiliar pistol offense run by the opposing team.

Wisconsin Badgers Patrick Butrym Ready to Take His Game to the “Next Level”


On Sunday night, the Wisconsin Badgers named four of their seniors as team captains. Along with QB Russell Wilson, RB Bradie Ewing and FS Aaron Henry is DT Patrick Butrym.
