BREAKING: You will not believe why Pep Hamilton left Michigan

Published

on

On Monday, news broke that Pep Hamilton was leaving the University of Michigan coaching staff to pursue another opportunity.

Well, according to reports, that opportunity is not at the college level and it’s not at the NFL level. Instead, Hamilton is expected to become the head coach and GM of the XFL’s Washington, DC franchise.

We sure did not see this one coming!

Drysdale: Full Detroit Lions 2019 ‘Perfect’ NFL Mock Draft Vol. 1

Polar Vortex 2019!

What better time than to write up my first full Detroit Lions 2019 NFL Mock Draft?

Let me begin by saying these mock drafts are extremely fluid as free agency will play a huge role in what direction Lions’ GM Bob Quinn decides to go in the NFL Draft.

For example, I personally believe that acquiring an edge rusher should be the number one priority this offseason and I would have to believe that Quinn agrees with that. But if he goes out and signs a big name DE such as Trey Flowers out of New England (yes, please!), the chances of the Lions drafting an edge rusher with their No. 8 pick in the first round would drop, though it is still possible.

This volume of my full Detroit Lions mock draft focusses on what the current needs are at this moment in time as if not a single free agent is signed.

So, with that understood, let’s take a look at Vol. 1 of my full Detroit Lions 2019 ‘Perfect’ NFL Mock Draft.


Round 1 (No. 8 overall) Rashan Gary (DL) – Michigan

Despite not having as much production as many projected him to have at the college level, Michigan defensive lineman Rashan Gary is the real deal and I have no doubt that he will be a top 10 pick. Gary would fit in beautifully with what Matt Patricia wants to do with the Lions’ defense and if he is available at No. 8, Bob Quinn should not hesitate to pull the trigger.

From The Draft Network:

Rashan Gary is a versatile defender with the needed abilities to be a disruptive force working from 3T. Gary has the ability to set the edge vs. the run and can be worked on the outside sparingly, although his pass rush skills are best utilized in scenarios that allow him to play with linear angles and with his hips aligned behind his pads to optimize his power and quickness.

Michigan surges to ‘Crystal Ball’ lead for 5-star quarterback

Published

on

Michigan vs. Ohio State.

That is what it could come down to for quarterback recruit J.J. McCarthy, who according to 247 Sports is the No. 2 pro-style quarterback (No. 19 overall player) in the class of 2021.

McCarthy, who plays for La Grange Park Nazareth Academy in Illinois, recently visited the Michigan campus for the first time and he was blown away.

From 247 Sports:

“I really felt the love from the coaching staff like crazy,” McCarthy said. “A couple highlights for me would be bowling with Coach (Jim) Harbaugh and interacting with Coach (Ben) McDaniels as well as the rest of the coaching staff. Watching practice and seeing how McDaniels and Harbaugh were actually teaching and going through the drills was surreal.”

According to 247 Sports, respected analysts Steve Wiltfong, Allen Trieu, and Michigan insider Sam Webb all currently have McCarthy going to the Wolverines.

If you have not yet seen McCarthy sling it, check out these highlights. He truly looks like he could step onto a college field right now and compete for a job.
