OT: @DWarren: "wit the Jets"
While here at UM. Maybe that extra year could have paid off.
Hope he makes the Jets!
I don't know what I was expecting when I clicked on your link... but it sure wasn't that.
It's pro sports. It's obviously OT.
Directly from the MGOBoard FAQ:
Pro sports of any variety
Yeah, it's OT. Don't neg FA for being right.
The front page Brandon Graham story disagrees with this being off topic.
Rex Ryan seems to like his Michigan Men. Maybe Donovan can learn some things from Revis and become a solid NFL player down the line.
AFC East has so many Michigan players now. Then again, which conference doesn't?
What exactly does he have to learn? He was a shutdown corner in the Big 10. Yes, he had the worst combine possible but he's a stellar player.
He may end up having a very limited/insignificant future in the NFL, but if that's the case, it's not because of his field intelligence; it's because of his athleticism.
FWIW, I still up-banged you because I like your optimism. I'm just bitter we won't have him this season..
You ain't gonna last long.
Life is all about learning from your mistakes. At least he got picked up...
... is from the Demar Dorsey school of English Comp.

Here's another tweet from @DonovanWarren today:
I'm humbled by my experiences... and look forward to the challenges ahead of me. And with that being said, Let's get to it!
Chris Webber used to talk about black voice/white voice, i.e. using a different manner of speech depending on the situation. Looks like Warren can do that. Can you?
But definitely is a grade A moron.
No way he made the right decision. What was in his head? To go undrafted is shocking. Minor I can understand because he's been injured so much, but he clearly wasn't ready. I don't know what this says about his relationship with the team or the coaches.
Warren should have stayed in school. Where do these kids get their info? Donovan has talent, but he wasn't exactly doninating the Big Ten. Oh well, poor decisions are supposed to have consequences. Hope he lands somewhere, and hope other young players are paying attention.
Obviously someone misled him to think he would get drafted....and like others have said....another year would have only boosted his draft stock....i wish him well in this trial and error experience....
Whew. I wonder what his wonderlic score was. Maybe that's another reason he wasn't drafted.
cut a hole in the box?
no no, steal underpants is step 1
Do you get off on having numerous accounts and upvoting your lame posts? Totally a dick question but most of your content, not saying mine isn't, is lame and doesn't contribute jack. Sorry, the jig is up.
This is going to end well...
He has conceded. I am victorious!
that's stocked with crazy things like being able to ban or delete at will. i actually had a God complex for a while and considered turning MGoBlog into a Kate Plus Eight fan page until Brian slapped me.
I'll have to carry my ebonics dictionary just in case I ever run into Warren.
If he makes the team, the Jets seem like a pretty good place for him. The Jets are loaded at CB though. Any chance he moves to S as a pro?
On the other hand, I just looked and the Jets only had 4 picks, and only one was used on a defensive player. That seems like a pretty good situation for an undrafted guy to walk into.
have to think DW's best chance to stick is at safety.
that doesn't have a slew of badass corners already. That would give him a much better chance of making said team.
Do you really think a guy who left school early because he thought he'd be a 3rd round pick and went undrafted would have that kind of sense?
You're a tool
ok, maybe warren didnt make the best decisions about declaring for the draft, but maybe hes using his head and thinking that any contract an undrafted player signs if they make a team after training camp will all be around the same length and monetary value. I'm assuming they are 1-2 year contracts, in which case spending a year or two learning from revis, cromartie, and leonhard is nothing but a good thing. its obvious that he isn't skilled enough to be a starter as a rookie on any team or else he would have been drafted, but the potential is there if he is willing to leave his ego at home and soak up the knowledge these guys have. then if he feels like his skills have increased, sign a short term contract with a team that needs a cb, dominate there, and then when that contract is up watch the money come rolling in
How can you be with a team when you just went undrafted? Does he mean he has a tryout or could they have promised him something already?
they can sign contracts too
I didn't know they could do it just minutes after the draft.
Why is this "OT" but the thread about Tim Toone isn't?
I could bitch about OT tags every time it pops up. It just would be just a short term fix and people would get irritated. Days when I'm around the board quite a bit, I fix threads and maybe mention it. Right now, I'm working on posts. I don't have time to bitch and fix.
i'm a huge hypocritical idiot who bitches about other people's posts and forgot!
Why are people on here vilified for bad grammar and most probably never went to UofM but Warren has the grammar of a bum on the street and it's fine? If football doesn't work out for him I know of a great corner in the D that he can call home.
Did you get enough hugs as a child?
OT = Off Twitter
he wont see the field for a while seeing they have kyle wilson, darrelle revis and antonio cromartie.
should have stayed another year and sad to see such a talent seem to be wasted
Maybe they want him to play safety.
thats a very good possibility but they still have leonard and pool, who i think is very underrated, at safety.
regardless he wont be seeing the field unless an injury happens. i really wish he would have stayed another year because he could have been a very good draft prospect in 2011 (and would have helped us win games to ha)
Yeah, but teams aren't looking for starters in the rookie free agent pool. They're looking for backups/special teamers.
So having three starter-level corners would be a problem if he were going to stay at corner because that means he'd be fighting for one of maybe two remaining roster spots. Having two starter-level safeties leaves quite a bit of room.
i agree with you are saying but totally disagreed with his decision to skip his senior year.
was my favorite player on the team for the last few seasons and thought that he had the skill to play in the nfl. the one benefit of going to the jets is that there will not be lack of competition at the DB position and he will learn from some of the best.
good luck to you DWarren.
Glad to see he at least has an opportunity.
How does nobody want someone with the last name Moosman!?
Moosman signed with the Shakespeare Repertory Theater. He's going to open as Othello.
His depth of knowledge and skill with iambic pentameter is uncanny, and they HAD to sign him.
It sucks that D. Warren didn't get drafted, but this appears to be a deep draft. One thing is for sure, he'll make more of an impact for the Jets (or whoever actually signs him) than Tim Tebow will make for the Broncos.
RR now has the nightmare scenario to point out to decent players who are fringe NFL prospects and are thinking of leaving early. Maybe others will learn from Warren's experience.
I thought we already had our bad example. Should get another one this summer when Manny doesn't get drafted, too. Ugh.
The Jets will be the team on HBO's Hard Knocks this summer. They always like to follow those rookies battling to make the team. I hope we don't see the Turk knocking on his door at 5a.m. asking for Donovan's playbook.
THIS!!!! I totally forgot about the Jets being on hard knocks and i can see Warren as one of the many who they follow around throughout camp.
edit: don't know why it didn't work but this is a response to jerseyblue
Goddammit Donovan Warren, why in fuck's name did you have to leave??
that he didn't get drafted. I wish he would've stayed for his senior year. But he didn't, so good luck with the Jets.
Why didn't he just go wherever Stevie Brown went? When they're on the same field he looks like the next Ty Law.
I get it he left early and shouldn’t have, but lets not forget that he played a lot of good ball for us.
How are people going to bad mouth a 5 star and 3 year starter for us.
Tisk tisk MGoBlog
Best of luck DW.
you are a fucking asshole.
