Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
NFL cheat sheet tabs Funchess as their LINK: number 1 potential NFL draft bust in 2015.
They cite his lack of dominance at either the WR or TE position. While his size and athleticism make him look like a TE, he is panned for his "lack of blocking and physicality." Cheat Sheet also criticizes him for "average hands" and being "an average route runner."
My personal hope is that his injuries in the ND game in 2015, along with the lack of a great QB, and the lack of another great receiver or two (a la Gallon) contributed greatly to his relative lack of production. I'd love to see Funchess shine in the show, and really come into his own.
This Saturday at the State Street M-Den from 12-2.
Who will score Michigan's first TD against Ap State and what play will it be?
I'm going with a post from DG to Funchess.
You're kidding right? Mr. Funchess doesn't break top 50 in this Top 100 list?
"Wide receiver or tight end? Funchess' position might be forever debated, but his talent is not. The 6-foot-5 junior is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses, averaging more than 15 yards per catch in his first two seasons."
Okay ESPN. Whatever..
WolverineNation uploaded a video of the Pee Wee (NTPW) team that Devin Funchess, Terry Richardson, James Ross and Royce Jenkins-Stone played on. It has Ross, Richardson and Jenkin's Stone talking and joking about their past Pee Wee team.
I personally think it's awesome that we have 4 guys coming to play for us who have played together for so long.
