There is absolutely no question about it. Detroit Lions DL Damon Harrison is one of the best (if not THE best) nose tackles in the National Football League, and he has been for some time.
Despite that, Harrison got snubbed once again when the Pro Bowl results were announced earlier in the week.
On Friday, Harrison (we know him simply as “Snacks”) talked about being snubbed and he clearly believes he should be playing in the NFL’s version of the All-Star Game.
From Detroit Free Press:
“It’s happened so many times to where I’m used to it,” Harrison said Friday. “I knew I wasn’t going to make it (this year). It wasn’t no big surprise.”
“It’s just a notch under your belt,” Harrison said. “Some of the best players in the NFL are Pro Bowlers so for somebody like myself who considers myself the best at what I do, to not get that recognition, yeah, it’s disappointing.”
Harrison believes there should be a Pro Bowl spot designated for nose tackles but that he is done campaigning.
“There should be a spot designated for nose tackles because our job is different and we shouldn’t be punished for playing that particular position,” Harrison said. “I’m used to it, man. I told my wife I’ll never campaign for it again and I won’t allow anybody to campaign for it again.”
Nation, do you agree with Snacks?
Michigan Wolverines’ National Signing Day recap
Jim Harbaugh and the University of Michigan football coaching staff had a very productive national signing day run. On the first day of the early signing period, the Wolverines were able to fill up almost their entire 2019 Freshman class inking commitments with 25 recruits.
The day was marked by the biggest surprise, maybe in the country, when Daxton Hill decided to send his letter of intent to Michigan. Only 11 days ago, Daxton flipped his commitment to Michigan to Alabama, but today that all changed. Hill is a five-star safety from Oklahoma with a great pedigree. He is the younger brother of Justice Hill, the Oklahoma State running back that just declared for the NFL draft.
Other notable commitments include Zach Charbonnet (RB) and Chris Hinton (DL). Both are in the top 100 nationally and are part of a trio that should be the backbone of this 2019 class. The other major commit was Cornelius Johnson, a top 250 player that, as a wide receiver, is viewed to be the missing piece at a position that Michigan has struggled to fill in its run-heavy offense.
As it stands now, Michigan has the top-ranked recruiting class in the B1G according to multiple sources and are ranked 7th nationally according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
