NFL Draft Player Profile: Zack Baun | Wisconsin

Wisconsin linebacker/edge rusher Zack Baun enters the 2020 NFL Draft as a Day 1 or Day 2 target for most teams. He may be the first Badger off the board in this year's class.

Here's what NFL.com says about Baun:

Ascending prospect whose explosive production on the field has begun to mirror his explosive athletic traits. Baun's twitchy get-off and deep bend at the edge is nightmare fuel for Big Ten tackles and he's still at the early stages of pass rush development. He is aggressive to flow downhill in run support, has sideline-to-sideline range and is fluid dropping into coverage. He's strong but a little light as an edge-setter so teams will need to figure out how best to align him. Baun is a scheme-diverse linebacker with high-impact potential whose best days are ahead of him.

Baun's biggest strength appears to be his versatility, which will make him more appealing to a wider variety of teams picking in the NFL Draft.
