Indispensable Badger #19

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.19.

Pat Muldoon

Position: Defensive End

Experience: Redshirt Senior

2012 Stats: Played in 11 games, starting six … Finished with 15 tackles (eight solos) … Set a career high with 5.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks last season … Finished with a career-high four tackles against Oregon State and Purdue.

Strengths: Muldoon is quick off the ball and plays smart. He is also disciplined and has great balance.

Weaknesses: Muldoon needs to work on shedding blockers easier when double teamed.

Overall: The Cincinnati native is looking to become a major contributor to the defense this season for the Badgers. His bigger frame allows for him to be a powerful presence. With his surprising quickness, considering he's overcome an ACL injury, Muldoon will impact the Badgers from the get-go.

Look for Muldoon to have plenty of playing time and also look for him to be a giant factor for the Badgers this season in a deep defensive line rotation.

Up Next: Our No.18 player missed all of spring recovering from an injury, but he'll be counted on to compete for a starting job in the fall camp
