Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver Jared Abbrederis won’t play in Saturday’s Reese’s Senior Bowl because of an injured hamstring suffered in practice.

Abbrederis has a good week of practice before tweaking the hamstring and was one of the more intriguing NFL draft options in Mobile, Al. this week.

He started his career at Wisconsin as a walk-on quarterback before developing into one of the best and most consistent wide receivers in program history. Abbrederis has shown the ability to run crisp and precise routes, a willingness and ability to block in addition to being a great return man.

He won’t wow anyone with his time in the 40-yard dash, but he can get deep and knows how to beat opposing defenses to get open deep or in the short and intermediate passing game.

He has some similarities to New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman who is a quarterback-turned-receiver who has some skills in the return game and solid skills on the perimeter and slot.

Missouri Tigers wide receiver L’Damian Washington will replace Abbrederis on the North roster.
