A Quick Look at Michigan’s NFL Draft Prospects

The 2013 NFL Draft kicks off tonight, where many college stars will finally have their dreams of playing on Sundays will be realized. The Michigan Wolverines have a few guys who should have their names called before the weekend is done.

Denard Robinson, WR/RB: He was one of the most electrifying players ever to play quarterback at the University of Michigan, but his NFL role will likely be as a flex player. He has world class speed and could be worth taking a flyer on in this draft. His injury history has NFL scouts concerned for his long-term status, though.

Projection: 4th-5th round pick

Kenny Demens, LB: The senior leader on last year’s defense. A durable, smart player. Poor tackler who sometimes goes for the big hit instead of wrapping up. Doesn’t project to more than a career special teams player.

Projection: 7th round

Will Campbell, DT: The Cass Tech product was very inconsistent throughout his college career, but his measurables have NFL scouts saying that he could be worth a late round look. Some teams have brought him in to try out on both sides of the ball. Someone could fall in love with him as a project.

Projection: 7th round

Jordan Kovacs, S: The former walk-on had a very nice and productive career for the Wolverines. He was the anchor of the secondary during his time in Ann Arbor. Solid in run support. Appears to be a special teamer in the league.

Projection: Undrafted Free Agent
