  Rachad Wildgoose's decision to turn pro after last season, a season in which he played in only two games, stripped Wisconsin of one its better cornerbacks. Barring injury, seniors Faion Hicks and Caesar Williams will enter the 2021 season as UW's best and most experienced cornerbacks. Defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard and new cornerbacks coach Hank Poteat are using spring ball to evaluate the depth at the position and find the next options behind Hicks and Williams. Two players who have taken advantage of the opportunities are Alexander Smith and Dean Engram, with each player getting work on the outside and at the nickel cornerback position. "I'd say in general we feel like they all certainly have a good talent base to them and I think as a group each one individually is coming from a good place," head coach Paul Chryst said recently when asked about the cornerbacks. "They want to be good players and they want to work at it. "But I think that Dean Engram and Alex have been doing a great job of kind of taking the coaching and trusting that and you can now start to see that progression. "That's not to say the other guys aren't taking the coaching. But I think that you're starting to see some consistency in them." - Journal Sentinel
