Plethora of Michigan-based talent projected for first round in 2017 NFL Draft

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report’s lead NFL Draft writer, published his “Way-Too-Early” 2017 NFL Mock Draft this morning, and the talent out of Michigan based schools for overflowing.

Four players from Michigan-based schools made an appearance on the list. Michigan defensive back Jabrill Peppers was the first on the list, as Miller predicted the RS sophomore to be drafted 10th overall by the Miami Dolphins.

Michigan State defensive lineman Malik McDowell was not far behind, being drafted 12th by the Atlanta Falcons in Miller’s mock.

Rounding out the Michigan-based talent was Western Michigan wideout Corey Davis going 24th to the Dallas Cowboys and Wolverines D-lineman Chris Wormley to the Seattle Seahawks at pick No. 31.

It’s clearly way to early to tell what will happen, but it’s great to see the state of Michigan dominating the early draft boards.
