Badgers center Biadasz puts NFL on hold, will return to Wisconsin in 2019

Two days after learning right tackle David Edwards is leaving early for the NFL, Wisconsin announced on social media that center Tyler Biadasz is sticking around for another year.

Like Edwards, Biadasz had inquired to the NFL about a potential draft grade. While Edwards, a redshirt junior, declared his intention to go pro, Biadasz, a redshirt sophomore, decided to stay at Wisconsin.

In addition to Edwards, Wisconsin is also losing both of its starting guards in seniors Beau Benzschawel and Michael Deiter.
