NAME: Beau Benzschawel

SCHOOL: Wisconsin

CONFERENCE: Big10

POSITION: Offensive guard

CLASS: RS Senior

JERSEY: No. 66

RECRUITMENT RATING: 3-star

HT: 6-5

WT: 317

D.O.B.: 9/10/1995


PROS: Powerful in straight line situations. Big, boxy frame occupies a lot of space and can frustrate defenders in tight spaces. Plays best in gap/power role to drive interior offensive linemen off the line of scrimmage. Has a modest level of open field mobility to release out in front of boundary plays and act as a lead blocker for ball carriers working up the field. Natural strength offers flashes of nice recovery balance after absorbing a heavy blow from a charging defender.

CONS: Foot speed is problematic, often times gets caught stuck in the mud and can’t slide base quickly enough to frame blocks cleanly. Has issues with playing with defenders in space, will lose reach blocks at the LOS or fold at the waist chasing after pass rushers if isolated in a man protection. Struggles to sustain blocks as a puller and will slip off a defender’s frame uncontested in too many situations. Does not show a lot of grace as a puller, appears tight in the hips. Tightness translates to outside zone concepts, where he struggles to stay engaged and will let defenders work across his face and into the backfield.
