Bleacher Report has Matt Miller's "post-combine" mock draft" earlier today. Thought some football-starved MGoBloggers might want to discuss it.
Of note, Miller had the following Wolverines in the first 3 rounds:
- #11 - Taco Charlton to New Orleans Saints
- #23 - Jabrill Peppers to NY Giants
- #80 - Amara Darboh to Indianapolis Colts
- #83 - Jehu Chesson to Tennessee Titans
- #101 - Chris Wormley to Denver Broncos
Rest of the B1G:
- #6 - CB Marshon Lattimore (OSU) to NY Jets
- #7 - FS Malik Hooker (OSU) to LA Chargers
- #18 - CB Gareon Conley (OSU) to Tennessee Titans
- #26 - OT Ryan Ramczyk (Wisconsin) to Seattle Seahwaks
- #46 - MLB Raekwon McMillan (OSU) to Indianapolis Colts
- #47 - DE TJ Watt (Wisconsin) to Baltimore Ravens
- #48 - OG Dan Feeney (Indiana) to Minnesota Vikings
- #49 - WR Chris Godwin (Penn State) to Washington Redskins
- #53 - DE Malik McDowell (MSU) to Detroit Lions
- #69 - C Pat Elflein (OSU) to LA Rams
- #71 - DE Dawauane Smoot (Illinois) to LA Chargers
- #73 - DB Desmond King (Iowa) to Cincinnati Bengals
- #75 - WR Curtis Samuel (OSU) to Buffalo Bills
- #82 - LB Vince Biegel (Wisconsin) to Denver Broncos
- #96 - DE Carroll Phillips (Illinois) to New England Patriots
- #100 - LB Anthony Walker (Northwestern) to Tennessee Titans
I think that was all the B1G players, let me know if I missed anyone.
Currently projected as the 6th best CB in the draft and a 2nd-to-3rd rounder.
6th underclassmen to declare for Ohio State behind Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott, Cardale Jones, Darron Lee, and Tyvis Powell.
Still waiting on word from WR Michael Thomas, S Vonn Bell, and WR Jalin Marshall.
CBSsports is doing a draft preview of 2015 FBS football teams up until the season kickoff. UM was yesterday, Sparty today. I think we could see 2-3 others potentially get drafted on this list if they have outstanding years, probably not likely but hopeful. Sad state of affairs that we have only avergaged 3 picks over the last 5 years for a total of 15. In contrast didn't every starter on the '97 team make it to the league? I know this trend will change because, Harbaugh!
Angelique talks about Cole taking reps at Center, the spring game draft (this Saturday), and a few other things.
Just your friendly MGoBoard reminder that this weekend many of our Wolverines will not hear their names called in the NFL draft. And that's OK. There are 120ish D1 programs or approximately 13,800 "jobs" for people to play college football. In the NFL there are 1590 jobs (on the "active roster, which doesn't mean you'll get to suit up on Sundays).
Many of our favorite Wolverines are done with Football. Some might become NFL stars, long-time special-teamers, have a cup of coffee, make practice squads, play arena league, or somewhere in between. And that's all awesome. How many people do you know that took a year or two off after graduation? Some travelled the world, some just bummed around, some saved up money for grad school, etc. Making a practice squad is nothing to sneeze at. None of these kids are failures, even if they don't get drafted.
Here's hoping that all of our Wolverines have great football experiences going forward. Go Blue.
The topic says it all, article for those who want to read it:
How cool would it be to keep watching Denard on a regular basis? Of course, he would have to play for the Lions, and its hard to wish that on someone I like so much.
