Offensive Lineman Michael Deiter, Wisconsin

In looking at all of the offensive linemen in this year’s draft, and taking into consideration the gap between college and pros which has stemmed its head over the last few seasons, Michael Deiter would seem to be a perfect pick for the Bears.

First of all, there is a significant chance he is available. That helps. Second of all, though, he comes from a program that continuously churns out NFL talent. The Wisconsin Badgers are one of those big universities that continue to produce up front. If you are a young offensive lineman playing high school football, with dreams of going pro, the Badgers should be within your top three landing spots if you want the best chances at achieving your dream.

Deiter falls in line with this narrative, and he fits it well. Deiter is one of the more versatile offensive linemen in this year’s class, as he has made double-digit starts at all three positions up front (tackle, guard and center).

Deiter has ideal size at 6-foot-5, 309 pounds and plays the game with a chip on his shoulder. He goes into each snap with the same intensity and brings it every time. Deiter is proficient in both run and pass blocking, with no enormous weakness.
