Where would the Badgers get selected if the NFL had a do-over?

If we had a 'Click' remote and could rewind all the way back to re-do the 2020 NFL Draft, where would each of the four Badgers be selected?

Jonathan Taylor
Original Pick: 2-9 to Indianapolis
New Pick: 1-32 to Kansas City

Jonathan Taylor was selected in the second round by the Colts in the real 2020 draft. However in our re-do he will jump up into the first round, replacing the Chiefs original selection Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Taylor's time with the Colts has been rocky to say the least. It seems like at any moment the whole relationship could fall apart. But he's been very productive since entering the league with an impressive 5.0 career yards per carry. Edwards-Helaire on the other hand never found traction with the Chiefs and is now used sparingly, so sliding Taylor to the Chiefs at pick 32 intead seems like a natural fit.

Zach Baun
Original Pick: 3-10 to New Orleans
New Pick: 5-16 to Washington

Zach Baun was taken by the Saints in the third round and never quite panned out. He had a few lackluster seasons, totaling only two sacks, and eventually moved on to the Philadelphia Eagles. We drop him back into the fifth round in this re-draft to the Washington Commanders. They selected outside linebacker Khaleke Hudson with their pick and he also striggled to gain footing in the league. Giving these linebackers a fresh start and a new home might be the best thing for them.

Tyler Biadasz
Original Pick: 4-40 to Dallas
New Pick: 4-40 to Dallas

The Dallas Cowboys actually made a solid choice here in Tyler Biadasz, so in our re-draft he stays put. Biadasz has had a solid NFL career thus far, including a Pro Bowl Selection in 2023. His performance doesn't really warrant jumping up into the second or third rounds, but he doesn't deserve to drop either.

Quintez Cephus
Original Pick: 5-21 to Detroit
New Pick: Undrafted

Quintez Cephus was chosen by the Lions in the fifth round of the 2020 draft. Unfortunately his 37 career catches over three seasons aren't really enough to offset his indefinite suspension from the league due to gambling. In our re-draft Cephus goes undrafted.
