What a show from the early games and the big prospects with one issue being a bit of a health scare for Henry Ruggs III who left the game after an injury.

Now, we get into a game that should absolutely delight Arizona Cardinals fans that crave good trench play.

It is the 2020 Rose Bowl

#6 Oregon Ducks vs #8 Wisconsin Badgers, 3:00 p.m. Arizona time, ESPN

This game is littered with fantastic offensive linemen and has a couple names to know on the defense as well.

For the Ducks, Shane Lemieux is one of my favorite guard prospects in the draft. He reminds me of of Evan Mathis (not saying he’ll ever reach that dominant level) with his ability to move and his nasty demeanor. They also have a tackle in Calvin Throckmorton and another center in Jake Hanson. Lemieux is the guy I’ve got an eye on for that 40th pick if the Cardinals want to have a plan in place for 2021 and beyond. On defense for the Ducks, Troy Dye is the guy to watch who could be a discounted version of Isaiah Simmons that everyone loves.

The Badgers meanwhile have a guy I’d take at eight without hesitating, and I know that is sacrilege, but Tyler Biadasz is that good along the interior of the offensive line. He could be a guy that anchors the Cardinals for a decade.

Behind Biadasz is Jonathan Taylor, who could be a great fit in the second round if the Cardinals cannot get Kenyan Drake at a reasonable rate. On defense for the Badgers, Zack Baun could be a good fit at outside linebacker in round three.

Enjoy what should be a great matchup everyone.
