Kevin Zeitler OG Wisconsin #70 Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 314

  Strengths: Prototypical size and strength. A physical run blocker who can drive defenders backwards. Quick off the snap; gets into position quickly and shows strong all-around fundamentals. Strong lower body allows him to anchor against the bull rush. Hard worker off the field; won team award for work in weight room in 2010. Weaknesses: Limited athleticism; struggles to get to the second level. Lumbers along and does not have the foot quickness to excel when pulling/trapping. Not polished in pass protection; gets into position quickly, but instincts and vision are lacking; struggles to adjust to delayed blitzes. Tends to play too upright in pass protection and will lunge at defenders at times. Struggles against more athletic interior linemen; lacks the overall quickness to adjust to pass rush moves of interior pass rushers. Suffered a sprained ankle in 2010. Comments: Zeitler has the size and skill set to excel as a power run blocker at the next level. He definitely has the skills to start, but may not be a great fit for every scheme due to his struggles in pass protection. His size/strength is an asset at times, but he could probably improve his mobility and quickness in pass protection by dropping a few pounds. If he doesn’t drop weight, then what you see is what you get – there is very little, from a fundamental/technical aspect, that Zeitler can do to improve his game.

Spring Football - Secondary

If there is one position group that is a mixed bag heading into Spring camp it's the Secondary for Wisconsin.  For the most part the starters are quite experienced, but what's behind them is a total unknown as they are very young and lacking in game experience.  Wisconsin finds itself having to replace Aaron Henry at Safety and Antonio Fenelus at Cornerback so this group...

Taylor's leadership puts Badgers over the top

In moments of chaos on the basketball court during postseason play, a steadying, influential leader with the ability to calm teammates while an entire season hangs in the balance often makes the difference between triumph and sadness. This season, Wisconsin almost always has the advantage with point guard Jordan Taylor in the lineup, despite the criticisms that have followed him...

Videos: Badgers Headed Back to the Sweet 16

Wow, what a great opening weekend. The Badgers advance to the Sweet 16 in consecutive seasons for the first time in program history. Here's a factoid for you - only 3 other teams (Louisville, NC State, and Ohio) in the Sweet 16 beat a higher seeded team than the Badgers (#5 Vandy) to get to the second weekend. UW earned its spot. Let's get on to some video fun with Mike Lucas...

Wisconsin-Montana Game Highlights and Interviews

Well that was a nice change. UW was 9-1 in 1st round games under Bo entering yesterday's game but a lot of those 9 wins felt closer than they should have. Not so yesterday as UW made the Seth Davis's and Doug Gottlieb's of the world look silly for continuing to pick UW to be upset in the opening round. UW takes on Vandy at 5:10pm CDT on Saturday. That's a perfect...

The Right Mix of Toughness

No.4 seed Wisconsin got five players in double figures and relied on senior point guard Jordan Taylor to again hit the big shot, as his 3-pointer with 1:42 left proved to be the difference in the Badgers beating Vanderbilt, 60-57, advancing to the Sweet 16 for the second straight season.
