Indispensable Badger #33

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.33.

Vince Biegel

Position: Linebacker

Experience: Redshirt Freshman

Strengths: For his size, Biegel has deceptive speed. At 6-3, 205 pounds, he is athletic enough to play in both space and in coverage. His tackling technique is superior to others as he hits hard and wraps up whenever there is contact.

Weaknesses: The only obvious problem for Biegel is his ability to shed off blocks from bigger, stronger lineman. With his current frame, he will have a tough time against a bigger offensive line.

Overall: A four-star recruit, Biegel is looking to enjoy a full season without injury; as a foot injury removed the opportunity for him to contribute as a true freshman. With his little experience last season (he played two games before taking a medical redshirt), Biegel's presence on the field should do wonders for the Badgers' defense. Biegel is a tough and speedy attacker that will play aggressive each and every play.

Look for Biegel to exceed expectations as he is considered to be number one on the depth chart. Biegel will thrive off of Chris Borland's, Brendan Kelly's and Ethan Armstrong's aggressive play.

Up Next: Originally lower on our list, our No.32 player has skyrocketed up the list because of experience and a sudden lack of depth
