Nick Herbig Draft Profile

Strengths

Nick Herbig has a nose for the football, and he always found a way to either blow up linemen or avoid them while at Wisconsin. He uses his hands well both to create separation and finish ball carriers. His inside move is exceptional, crossing the face of tackles with ease. While most analysts knock Herbig’s size and play strength, they have said the same about many other successful Wisconsin defenders that made the transition well. Most recently, that was Jack Sanborn.

Weaknesses

Again, the knock for everyone on Nick Herbig is his size and play strength. While nearly all of his snaps came on the edge for the Badgers, some scouts believe his lack of size may require Herbig to play off-ball linebacker, and changing his position could be quite the learning process. Regardless of where Herbig plays, he will need to add some strength.
