Wisconsin center Travis Frederick looks to be the next product of the Wisconsin offensive lineman factory in Madison. It's no real surprise, though, considering he was the first freshman in Wisconsin history to start a season-opening game when he snapped the ball against Northern Illinois on September 5, 2009. He later went on to start two games at left guard (UWBadgers.com).
Frederick's versatility as an interior lineman has earned him the honor of Mel Kiper's highest-rated center. "Frederick has been my top center for a while: solid player, moves well, can get to the second level or pull effectively" (ESPN Insider). Frederick took a much more modest approach to the question of what he thinks about this year's class of offensive lineman.
"I think there's a lot of great talent out there, both at center and guard," Frederick told reporters at the combine. "I think that I play very well as well. And I think that I rank up there with those guys."
Here are some video highlights to back that up.
