After the day one and day two results (LINK), Michigan got one more player drafted on day three.
Zach Gentry – TE – Pittsburgh Steelers: Round 5, #141 overall
Gentry had subpar performances at both the Combine and pro day, but I guess it’s important to remember that he got invited to the Combine for a reason. At 6’8″ and 260 lbs. with some impressive plays over the past two seasons, he has some things going for him. I projected that he wouldn’t go higher than the 7th round due to a 4.92 forty (at the Combine) and a poor showing on the bench press, the Steelers found him worthy of drafting, perhaps to help replace Jesse James (who signed with the Lions). I like Gentry and I think he could hang around the NFL for a decent career.

UNDRAFTED FREE AGENTS
Juwann Bushell-Beatty – OT – Washington Redskins
Karan Higdon – RB – Houston Texans
Tyree Kinnel – S – San Francisco 49ers
Lawrence Marshall – DT – Chicago Bears
Bryan Mone – DT – Seattle Seahawks
Grant Perry – WR – unsigned
Wilton Speight – QB – San Francisco 49ers
Brandon Watson – CB – Jacksonville Jaguars
Undrafted free agents are unlikely to actually make the team they sign with in the aftermath of the draft, so I won’t bother talking much about whether these guys fit on their respective rosters. Talent-wise, the most likely player to stick in the NFL is Karan Higdon, who was invited to the Combine and ran a 4.49, but had surgery that may hamper him a little bit.
