Pro Football Focus has Jourdan Lewis, Taco Charlton, and Jabrill Peppers all being drafted in round one.
Pick #27 to the Chiefs - Jourdan Lewis
Pick #28 to the Cowboys - Taco Charlton
Pick #32 to the Patriots - Jabrill Peppers
Most of the mock drafts that I've seen had Lewis going in the 2nd or 3rd round due to his size. If he lasts till the 3rd, that team is getting a bargain with his press coverage skills.
Ann Arbor — Braylon Edwards was living in Chicago last fall, in a comfort zone with so many Michigan alums in the area, when he had a moment of realization while watching an NFL game on a Sunday afternoon
“I said, ‘All right, look, I’m 33, I’ve got to get back home,’ ” Edwards said. “I knew it was time to focus. It’s time to find that drive. You’re 33, what’s going to be your final signature on this world?”
Edwards currently is taking four classes at Michigan and has an internship in the athletic department...
“Michigan has always been Michigan,” Edwards said. “We are the leaders and the best, but in the last four, five years, you’ve seen the transcendence of where Michigan is going in terms of the national spotlight. You look at the football program, you look at the architectural design and obviously (Michigan football coach Jim) Harbaugh is the talk of the town on so many levels and what the Ross School of Business is doing, you’re lucky to be here.
“It’s not easy. I’d be lying if I told you my classes are easy. These kids are intelligent, they’re smart, they work hard, the professors are amazing at what they do. To be here is a special thing, and I see why people are excited and passionate about whatever they do here.
Edwards blends in on campus wearing a Michigan hoodie and hat, and when he’s not going to class or studying or attending meetings as part of his internship, he’s at the football building giving advice to some of the current Michigan receivers, including early-enrollee freshmen Donovan Peoples-Jones and Tarik Black.
“The other day I was watching film with Maurice Ways and helping him, saying....
Good read, only a small portion, check out its entirety at:
Last year Warde Manuel said that we wouldn't have a night game as there wasn't a game big enough to be worthy of it. This year we only really have one big game at home in MSU. I see numerous advantages and disadvantages to putting the game at 7 or 8 pm. For advantages, it helps recruiting and gives the team a boost from the home crowd energy. Throttling State on primetime television would be sweet. On the other hand, it props up a 3-9 program and might lead to more issues with drunk fans but 3:30 games are already dark anyways and the SEC does these games all the time. It seems like something Harbaugh would do IMO. What say you?
Interesting list from Vegas bookie William Hill US. They list the 2017 Heisman odds for 30-some players. Wilton Speight comes in at 75-to-1, tied for 25th place on their list. He's the only Michigan player listed.
Hey, I'll bet Lamar Jackson's odds were worse than 75-to-1 at the beginning of last season, so you never know!
The hits just keep coming.
And, I do not mean to make to take this situation lightly, or disrespect the victims of these horrible acts. I hope the victims eventually find peace, to the extent possible, within the legal system.
