Pretty cool video feature on Peppers
It's generally a slow football news time, aside from the NFL Combine. But since it's the off-season, I posted a guide this morning to what I look at when watching offensive tackle prospects. It's mostly centered around Michigan recruits/players.
Who's the best left tackle prospect in the 2018 class? I haven't had enough time to look at all the candidates.
Saw this pop up on Twitter. So much for being the only school with Jordan Football. Rumblings were happening all season about them whining about not being Jordan. This photo shows Jumpman logos on the 25 yard lines at their Football stadium.
edit: picture was fake but it's confirmed.
Early RB results from yesterday:
De'Veon Smith - 22 reps on BP
Dalvin Cook - 22 reps
Fournette - DNP (say's he'll lift at LSU Pro day)
Perine - 30 reps
McCaffrey - 10 reps (so much for skipping the bowl to prepare for combine)
Ben Braden - 25 reps / 5.04 40
Nice article by Nick Baumgardner over at Mlive about how Coach Harbaugh is bringing his NFL experience to Michigan and helping prepare players for future NFL Careers.
De'Veon Smith said:"Honestly, I don't think any (player from any) other school out here has it easier than us right now," he said. "Because we've been through it all."
And if that wasn't enough, the Ross School of Business is currently hosting the NFL's Business Academy, in which 34 active and retired NFL players are participating (Julius Peppers, Alfred Morris and Cliff Avril among others). Not only is Coach preparing players physically and mentally for NFL careers, he's ensuring that Michigan gets attention even during the offseason (although it seems like he doesn't have an "offseason") and is cementing an interesting relationship between the NFL and Michigan. The man is a genius. Go Blue.
