Scouting Report: Air Force Falcons

Scouting Report: Air Force Falcons

Michigan looks to close the non-conference strong against a dangerous AF squad. In 2012, Michigan opened its season on neutral turf in Dallas before coming home to take on what we all thought was an average Air Force team. Early in the fourth quarter of that game, the Falcons had cut it to a three-point contest before the Wolverines added another field goal and won, 31-25. It was safe to call it a scare, and the preseason No. 8 team might not have escaped without a thrilling performance from then-quarterback Denard Robinson, who tallied more than 200 yards and two scores both on the ground...

2017 NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns Select Jabrill Peppers With The 25th Overall Pick

2017 NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns Select Jabrill Peppers With The 25th Overall Pick

It’s final: Jabrill is taking his talents to Cleveland. Well, that was fun. And now that Jabrill’s Michigan career is finally, officially, behind him, we know the next stage in Jabrill’s career - the Cleveland Browns. I’m sure that will be equally as interesting to watch unfold. Of course, it’s easy to wonder what might have been if Jabrill’s Michigan career had gone a little differently, whether with fewer injuries or one more touchdown or two or maybe another season in Maize and Blue. But the future is bright for the New Jersey star, and that’s all that really matters. Now,...

Throwback Thursday: One (Or 53) For The Record Books

Throwback Thursday: One (Or 53) For The Record Books

One of Michigan’s best tight end seasons came in 2002, but it’s often forgotten. When Jake Butt was collecting various Michigan records among tight ends, he landed Michigan’s all-time receptions and receiving yards marks, and came close in all the other categories. One of those, receptions in a single season, he finished second - only Bennie Joppru was ahead of him with 53. It was during a breakout senior campaign in 2002, when Joppru put up 579 yards - second to a young Braylon Edwards on that team - and 5 touchdowns. J-Booty fell just short twice, with 51 catches in 2015 and 46 in...

NFL Draft Profile: WR Jehu Chesson

After a step back back in 2016, what will scouts make of the dynamic receiver? If it hadn’t been for a knee injury in the Citrus Bowl at the end of his 2015 season, we might be talking about whether Jehu Chesson is a first or second-round pick. But a backslide in his final season has NFL teams wondering if the wideout offers enough return on investment. Chesson wasn’t just a good player in 2015, he was Michigan’s best player. He earned team MVP honors on 50 catches for 764 yards, along with a total of 10 TDs in the air and on the ground. Some of his 2015 performances were outright...

Grant explains how close he was from getting his leg amputated. Luckily, he is on the road to recovery. Grant Newsome suffered a horrible leg injury last season against Wisconsin, which required six surgeries since then and is expected to miss the entire 2017 season. What many didn’t know is how close he was to losing his leg, and it was shockingly close. He was grateful the doctors recognized the severity of the situation to get him into surgery that night. Angelique Chengelis with the Detroit News posted a video with Grant talking about his injury and recovery while following the team...

ESPN reporting Jabrill Peppers had diluted sample in drug test at NFL Combine

His agency says that Peppers was sick and “pounding water” prior to Combine. Jabrill Peppers has been an enigma as an NFL Draft prospect in terms of where he will ultimately land. However, his chances of being a first round pick may have taken a hit on Monday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Peppers’ drug test results returned a diluted sample at the NFL Combine in February. It is important to note that the sample result does not mean he tested positive for any banned substances, but the NFL treats it as such and he will begin his career in the league’s drug program. His...

Can the Michigan cornerback make it at the next level? The Michigan Wolverines will have an abundance of former players infiltrating the NFL as rookies in 2017. On the defensive side of the ball in the secondary, two big names making the jump to the next level are Jourdan Lewis and Jabrill Peppers. Although Lewis and Peppers have tremendous skill and name recognition, don’t sleep on the cornerback who started opposite Lewis, Channing Stribling. Stribling emerged as a formidable foe for opposing offenses as the 2017 unfolded. On the year, Stribling only allowed 19 receptions, with only...

Michigan 2017 Draft Profile: Ben Braden

An undrafted free agent at worst, Ben Braden will find himself in an NFL camp this fall. Ben Braden came to Michigan as part of Brady Hoke’s first full recruiting class at the University of Michigan in 2012. He’s been apart of the program from a promising start of the Hoke era, to the disastrous 2014 season, to the (almost) glorious first two years of the Jim Harbaugh era. A three-year starter, Braden has been under the microscope as part of the much discussed offensive line group that struggled at times when they needed to get yards the most. As stated earlier, Braden has experienced...

Fan Poll: Who Will Lead Michigan In Receiving Yards This Year?

There are a lot of candidates to take the reins in 2017. Yeah, it’s one of Michigan’s iconic positions historically. But it’s also one of the most exciting right now - after all, the Wolverines lose as much as 80% of their offense here, but they get to turn the ball over to young studs from a historic recruiting class who by all accounts are ready to kick some Butt. Er, figure of speech. But who will be the one to take the lead? Receiving is a tough business if you’re the fourth- or fifth-best guy on the team. Even if you’re a world-beater, you’re still riding the bench. So, who...
