As we inch closer and closer toward opening day, the Wisconsin football team sports a lot of new faces on both sides of the ball. Coming off a 9-4 season that saw a debacle in the desert, a meltdown at Camp Randall and their first loss by more than a touchdown since October 2010, the Badgers have plenty of room for improvement.
Replacing their entire front seven and their top four receivers will be no easy task, but these 10 players will certainly help Gary Andersen and his coaching staff as they move into their second season at the helm of the Badgers.
To compile this list, I examined how well these players have performed in the past, be it through tangible statistics or just their impact on the field, as well as projected ahead a bit in some cases. Honorable mentions to this list include Kyle Costigan and Tyler Marz along the offensive line as well as tight end Sam Arneson.
