How the Michigan football team will do this year is anyone’s guess. After an abysmal 3-9 season in 2008, the Wolverines started hot in 2009, going 5-2 before hitting the bulk of the Big Ten season and sputtering to a 5-7 finish.
Two years under Rich Rodriguez and the results have been less than stellar. An 8-16 record, no bowl berths, no rivalry wins and an awful lot of questions.
There were a lot of holes in last year’s team, but a few players were bright spots all season and kept the team in games as best they could. Since the end of the season, a few players have earned good reviews from scouts and analysts as the NFL Draft approaches in April.
While there aren’t as many big names as in years past, here’s a look at six Michigan prospects that NFL teams might consider taking in this year’s draft.
