Big Ten Football Preview 2015: Three Key Players For Wisconsin

Taking a look at the Badgers that can help the team win the Big Ten West.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Wisconsin Badgers have gone through a coaching change this off-season with Paul Chryst replacing Gary Andersen, but they have a good roster and should not experience a drop-off this season.

Here are their three key players for the 2015 season:

Corey Clement, Junior Running Back

Clement has played the last few seasons in Melvin Gordon's shadow. Now, he'll get the chance to shine with Gordon now in the NFL.

Wisconsin is a running back factory, so expect Clement to perhaps not dazzle quite as much, but still be one of the best backs in the conference with the job all his.

Vince Biegel, Junior Linebacker

Biegel is arguably the best player on the defense and has a motor that is constantly running. Look for the active linebacker to have a big season and continue to camp in opponent's backfields.

Michael Deiter, Redshirt Freshman Offensive Lineman

In addition to being a running back factory, the Badgers are also known for cranking out great offensive lineman. Rob Havenstein is no longer in Madison after being a fixture on the line. Deiter is young, but he versatile, big and physical and is a future star for the Badgers.
