The Badgers are also going to return a ton of proven players on defense as well.
Wisconsin's defensive line is going to be extremely deep in 2013, as backup Brendan Kelly is the only senior, and it is unlikely that any of the starters will elect to turn pro.
At linebacker, the Badgers will lose all-everything Mike Taylor, but Chris Borland should be back considering his draft profile. Fellow starter Ethan Armstrong will also return, and the Badgers have Jake Keefer, star of the Badgers spring game, waiting in the wings. Highly regarded Vince Biegel could also challenge for playing time.
The Badgers' secondary will be a question mark heading into the 2013 season, as they will lose at least three starters; it isn't a lock that safety Dezmen Southward will return, either. However, the Badgers have plenty of talent returning at corner and safety, with Peniel Jean and Michael Trotter as potential stars.
