Abbederis, like so many other Wisconsin legends, is a walk-on turned star. He is good route runner with tremendous hands.  He has long arms and uses them effectively in jump ball situations. He has the quickness to make defenders miss once he has the ball in his hands. His ability along with his work ethic and drive give Abbrederis great potential as an NFL prospect.
