#11 to the Tennessee Titans
“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Michigan's last 5 first round draft picks-
#77 is a great number for OTs here.
The jersey number 77 is one of three that has been worn by five All-Americans in the history of Michigan, as I recall. In addition to Lewan, it has belonged to Jake Long, Jon Jansen, Paul Seymour and Arthur Walker. The other two numbers to be so honored are #72, one of which was Dierdorf, and perhaps not to anyone surprise, the other one is #1.
Shows him pancaking MSU PED fiend bullough. Love it.
Happy for Taylor! This looks great for Michigan!
I thought Kovacs was #11...er ... was it #32? Can't remember...
post pics of various shirts, posters, hats, and other souvineers, I'm beginning to think you're not some high school kid, but instead make a living as a sales rep or marketing exec for some sports apparal company.
RDT got busted a lot quicker, though. Nice job keeping the smokescreen going for so long, "kid"!
I don't know about him but I'm David Brandon.
Did Tom Gholston go in the first round?
Nope. 4th rounder.
This is Lewan's reaction to him as well as mine towards the rest of the B1G having the first B1G draft pick.
Berman referenced 'The Long Blue Line' Of Offensive Linemen? Very cool!
I hope this kid keeps his heads and has a great career!
Make Michigan proud!
AFC south has henne and denard (jags) and lewan and martin (titans)
Make it a long, successful NFL career.
Unbelievable stat RT @BruceFeldmanCFB: After producing 10 Top-10 picks from 03-08, the B1G has now gone 6 years without a Top-10 pick.
Oh my gosh, that seems impossible! Wow.
It's because top level skill guys don't go to the Big Ten anymore. But it's surprising a lineman hasn't been top 10. I think it just shows how much in love with Southern players NFL GM's are.
but CMU does
Ohio State is really the only team consistently producing great NFL talent right now. Embarassing, but not completely surprising
First pick from the B1G.
Why you screw uo trading for Taylor Lewan?
Now we just need Dennard to be left out of the first round and have MSU fans whine about no respect and how Roger goodell's keeping them down.
Nice obsession there.
I am obsessed with ND, Ohio, and MSU and want them to do as bad as possible at everything. There's nothing wrong with that.
"Great for our guy!" kinda stuff. Not interested in anything else on Taylor's thread.
That's pretty sad for you then. By all accounts Dennard is a good kid. After they leave school, I hope they find success in their endeavors. Really, it's the institutions I don't like -- I don't have problems with 18-22 year olds based on their college choices.
Since when is it bad to want our rivals to suck. I hope that our three rivals have nobody drafted in the first round which isn't going to happen now with Shazier and Martin. So sue me.
I don't see how dennards draft stock effects our rivals. He's a good kid and he's done with school best of luck to him
before a buckeye or Johnny Manzel
Wonder if Bortles to Jacksonville means anything for Denard.
Know he's not a QB right ?
Bortles is a similar type of developmental project who could end up playing running back eventually too. But I asked the question without hinting positive or negative. There's also a chance the Jaguars could be looking to build an offense that's loaded with versatility. It's just interesting to ponder, that's all.
A 6'5" running back? Are you thinking of someone else? A TE maybe but not RB...
Ha, I was -- thought he was the NIU guy, Jordan Lynch. Shows how much I've paid attention to football. I'll go back to the basketball threads where my head isn't in my ass, but I still think we should fire Al Borges.
Bortles would be a really big, kinda-slow RB.
If he doesn't work out at QB, then I'm not sure how you recover unless you pull a Matt Jones and try him out at WR/TE.
it means more for Chad Henne than Denard.
Obviously I agree now that I've figured it out, but there's not really too much to wonder about there.
in all you do
Good for him. Glad to see him go to a decent situation, and hopefully he'll continue the tradition of great UM tackles.
Adds to the legacy of Oline U.
How ironic does that sound after last year.
I don't know what I like less about this evening: Ray Lewis waxing poetic about how much he loves the NFL when he used his league-earned fame to literally get away with murder, or Taylor Lewan proving you can punch dudes both on the field and outside the bar, intimidate a rape victim, and be live-tweeted pouring drinks behind a bar and being an asshole after a loss, and still be in line to be a newly-minted millionaire by this time next week.
Someone sounds a little butthurt
