Over the last 7 years, Michigan football has gone through some stuff, to say the least. The program that was normally producing 5+ draft picks each year was averaging less than 3 picks from 2009-2015.
Yeah, not good.
But with the return of Jim Harbaugh and the return of the program, will 2016 be the last year of less than 5 NFL draft picks for the foreseeable future? Hell, I believe there could be 5 picks this year.
Check out my Michigan football 2016 NFL mock draft projections:
|DL Willie Henry||4th Rd, 127 to CHI||5th Rd, 156 to BUF||3rd Rd, 89 to PIT||4th Rd, 103 to JAX|
|OL Graham Glasgow||6th Rd, 199 to CIN||5th Rd, 146 to JAX||3rd Rd, 96 to NE||4th Rd, 119 to HOU|
|QB Jake Rudock||Undrafted||Undrafted||Undrafted||6th Rd, 221 to NE|
|OLB Mario Ojemudia||Undrafted||Undrafted||Undrafted||7th Rd, 246 to PIT|
|FB Sione Houma||Undrafted||Undrafted||Undrafted||7th Rd, 252 to CAR|
This may be the best case scenario for Michigan’s 2016 NFL Draft but there are also a couple other names to watch at the end of the draft/undrafted free agency, including LB James Ross, LB Desmond Morgan, LB Royce Jenkins-Stone and S Jarrod Wilson.
