This week I get to write about my all-time favorite Wolverine defensive player.  Depending on which recruiting site you trust, Ottawa Hills (Grand Rapids) linebacker David Harris was considered a high-2 or low-3 star prospect.  Harris defied the odds and was picked in the second round of the NFL draft.  To my knowledge, Harris was the only 2-star recruit ever drafted from Michigan until Jeremy Clark was picked this year.  His career arc is one that shows what consistent work ethic and resilience can produce.

HONORABLE MENTION

  • New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was 23/32 for 319 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 1 interception in a 31-24 loss to the Seattle Seahawks
  • On the other side, Seattle DE Frank Clark made 5 tackles and 1 sack in the same game

  • Green Bay Packers FB Joe Kerridge played in his first NFL game. He was released earlier in the year by the Washington Redskins

BAD NEWS

  • Minnesota Vikings OT Jake Long suffered an Achilles injury and is out for the year. This may be the end of his career after multiple ACL tears and now an Achilles issue. He’s only 31 years old, which isn’t ancient, but he just can’t stay healthy.
