this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
From Kyle Meinke
He caught punts and did other drills, but is not yet cleared for contact. (thus the yellow Jersey)
And, a mid-day unfortunate update from the Det News:
Apparently Denard has the Dropsies (who wrote that headline? Are they 5 years old?). Apparently that means he had 2 drops in a row. And while Menkie reports that he went 11-for-11 on catching punts before practice, the news says he only caught 2 of 4 after.
Michigan's Denard Robinson has committed to the Senior Bowl. He was invited as a receiver. Should play RB, too.
Saw some Senior Bowl notes on Stephen Schilling from Shutdown Corner:
I also liked what I saw from Michigan guard Stephen Schilling -- the guy definitely plays with a nasty streak and shows the technique you'd expect from a school with so much great offensive-line history. Representatives from the Washington Redskins, Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs made sure to talk to Schilling after practice. A projected third-rounder at this time, Schilling could benefit greatly from the pre-draft process, especially as he shows zone teams his ability to hit the second level decidedly and in a hurry.
There were some other Big Ten players mentioned there and on other sites, like Ryan Kerrigan (apparently weighed in lighter than expected and started off slowly, but came back on Day 3); Gabe Carimi (strong and good technique, but not that athletic), Greg Jones (undersized, stiff, "tight-hipped"), Ricky Stanzi (not very accurate), and others.
If you look at the main article, it's quoted as "Michigan's Tim Jamison never slowed down during Day 4 practices."
I'm not an insider on ESPN, so I can't read the full article. But apparently Tim is doing well. Improved draft stock?
