Senior Bowl Notes
- Abbrederis has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl
- The former Badger didn’t win the weigh in, weighing in at only 189 pounds, BUT when he got on the field, he lit up the North team defensive backs. He caught everything, got open against everyone he faced. Everyone. He’s fast. He’s going to be a star this week as long the North QBs get him the ball.
- Abbrederis continued his impressive run during the week. He didn't do anything flashy, but just caught the ball consistently every day against any and all DBs
- Unfortunately an injury suffered during the week kept Abbrederis from playing in the game on Saturday.
- Has ability to get open anywhere on the field
- Quick out of cuts
- Versatile - ran for 2 TDs this year as well as being a factor in return game for years
- Former high school state champion hurdler
- Can he get separation against press coverage?
- Lets the ball get into his body
- Stuck in a deep receiver draft class
A former walk-on, Abbrederis is one of Wisconsin's all-time greatest receivers. An excellent route runner with blazing speed, Abbrederis burst onto radar screens in 2013 with one of the best performances of the season. In Columbus, matched up with All-American CB Bradley Roby, Abbrederis caught ten passes for 207 yards and a TD, as he repeated beat Roby and the Buckeye secondary.
Abbrederis won't get the hype of other WR in this class, but he's one of the most dependable big play receivers in the country. This is one heck of a wide receiver class so the team that finds Abbrederis late on day two or early day three is going to love him.
