Indispensable Badger #42

Counting down the days to Wisconsin opens training camp, Badger Nation's new summer feature will rank the 50 most indispensable players of the 2013 Wisconsin football team. Today we reveal No.42.

Riki Kodanko

Position: Offensive lineman

Experience: Redshirt Junior

Strengths: Powerful offensive lineman that knows how to punish defensive units.

Weaknesses: Kodanko lacks experience due to sitting out the past two seasons. He will be in for a reality check once Big Ten play begins.

Overall: Kodanko is a giant to most. Standing 6-9 and weighing 332 pounds, Kodanko is looking to contribute greatly this season for the Badgers. Considered to be second on the depth chart, Kodanko is your typical Wisconsin lineman. His overwhelming power will contribute to the Badgers successful run game. With a giant frame and immense strength, look for Kodanko to be given plenty of reps this season.

Up Next: A four-star prospect coming out of high school, our No.41 player got his most extensive playing time last season and is looking to expand his snaps
