this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
So i had seats for Section 23, row 5, seat(s) 9&10, my mom went with me
The seats were in the player family and friends area, so in addition to be nearing Adam Patterson's parents, behind Mike Martin's parents and near the Grahams, and meeting Jack Kennedy's parents who are very very nice people,
Next to me sat this very big guy, about 24 at the oldest, but he was wearing a shirt that said 2008 Michigan Senior, with the UM helmet shown like it is on some UM polos
I am guessing that the person next to me could have very well been Tim Jamison?
Here are your unofficial Michigan free agency signings, for our boys who missed out on draft day, but will still look to earn an NFL paycheck (except Carson Butler, who will undoubtedly be cut after releasing a terror-spree the nerdy denizens of Wisconsin).
Full (and still unofficial) list can be found here: http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2009/04/2009-undrafted-free-agent-signing...
Will Johnson - Ravens
Brandon Harrison - Colts
Tim Jamison - Texans
Doug Dutch - Redskins
Sean Griffin - Seahawks
Carson Butler - Packers
Here's hoping these undrafted guys impress enough to crack the roster.
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?
With our entire starting D-Line graduating or leaving (I presume Brandon Graham will leave), I am worried about where we will stand next year. I know Martin has been playing well and the Butler shift may be interesting. Also, Van Bergen has showed some promise. Roh and Lalota and Campbell(?) are coming in next year. It would be a shame if we improve our LB core and DB's but our D-Line falls apart. Do we have any budding superstars I am unaware of? Is there any real cause for concern?
