The 2022 NFL Draft has wrapped, and here are the Michigan-related results:

Defensive end Aidan Hutchinson was taken in the 1st round (#2 overall) by the Detroit Lions.

Safety Daxton Hill was taken in the 1st round (#31 overall) by the AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals.

Outside linebacker David Ojabo was picked in the 2nd round (#45 overall) by John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens. Ojabo would almost certainly have been a 1st round pick if not for a torn Achilles suffered at Michigan’s pro day.

Running back Hassan Haskins was drafted in the 4th round (#131 overall) by the Tennessee Titans, where he will have a chance to run behind former Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan.

Offensive tackle Andrew Stueber went to the New England Patriots in the 7th round (#245 overall), joining former Wolverine Michael Onwenu on the offensive line. Outside linebacker Joshua Uche and inside linebacker Cam McGrone are also with the Patriots.

Undrafted free agent signings include:

  • CB Vincent Gray to the New Orleans Saints
  • S Brad Hawkins to the Atlanta Falcons
  • DT Chris Hinton to the New York Giants
  • DT Donovan Jeter to the Pittsburgh Steelers
  • QB Brandon Peters, who transferred to Illinois, to the Los Angeles Chargers
  • LB Josh Ross to the Baltimore Ravens
  • DE Luiji Vilain, who transferred to Wake Forest, to the Minnesota Vikings

2022 NFL Draft Preview: Michigan

It’s NFL Draft time! The draft starts tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. EST. Here is a look at the various Michigan players eligible for the draft.

Aidan Hutchinson, DE
Captain and all-time season sacks leader Aidan Hutchinson will be the first Wolverine off the board. At 6’7″ and 260 pounds, Hutchinson showed off good (not great) speed with a 4.75 forty at the Combine and also has elite quickness with a 4.15-second 20-yard shuttle. His arms are considered to be a little short (32 1/8″), but that doesn’t seem to be limiting his draft stock. In general, he’s considered to be nearly a lock to go in the top two to the Jaguars or Lions.
Projected round: 1st

Daxton Hill, S
At 6’0″ and 191 pounds, Hill is a little bit small for a traditional safety role. However, his speed (4.38 in the forty) and athleticism (10’1″ broad jump) are tantalizing and he’s a willing and able tackler in the open field. He could be a starter from day one, especially as a nickel corner. Scouts seem to like his man coverage abilities, and he could also be a major asset on special teams. Most projections seem to have in the bottom half of the first round, and he’s battling with Notre Dame’s Kyle Hamilton to be the first safety off the board.
Projected round: 1st

8 Michigan Players Invited to NFL Combine

Aidan Hutchinson

There are eight Michigan players who have been invited to perform at the NFL Combine:

  • CB Vincent Gray
  • RB Hassan Haskins
  • S Daxton Hill
  • DT Chris Hinton
  • DE Aidan Hutchinson
  • DE David Ojabo
  • LB Joshua Ross
  • OG Andrew Stueber

A few draft-eligible players were not invited, including WR Daylen Baldwin, S Brad Hawkins, and C Andrew Vastardis. I guess this is my time to reiterate how weird it is for Baldwin to have declared for the draft, since he did not factor much into the Michigan attack this past season. It’s also interesting that Hawkins was not invited despite being literally the most experienced player in Michigan history (by games played).

Review of 2021 Season Predictions

Aidan Hutchinson

Now’s your chance to lambaste me for my idiocy, so you can go check out my season predictions if you want (LINK).

Season prediction: Hassan Haskins, 900 yards
Actual: Hassan Haskins, 1327 yards
Scoop: I thought Michigan might spread the ball around a little more – and I did not expect Haskins to get 270 carries – but Haskins got a big boost in production when Blake Corum injured his ankle. Haskins notched 27, 31, 20, and 28 carries in the wake of Corum’s injury before the latter returned healthy. The last time any running back topped 270 carries in a season was Mike Hart, who had 318 attempts in 2006.

Season prediction: Ronnie Bell, 800 yards
Actual: Cornelius Johnson, 620 yards
Scoop: Bell got hurt in the first game of 2021, tearing his ACL on a punt return. He had 1 catch for a 76-yard touchdown at that point. After a two-year run as Michigan’s leading receiver, it was time for a new king, and that new king was 6’3″, 210 lb. Cornelius Johnson. Johnson made 39 catches for 620 yards and 3 touchdowns.

2021 Season Countdown: #10 Andrew Stueber

Andrew Stueber

Name: Andrew Stueber
338 lbs.
High school:
Darien (CT) Darien
Offensive guard/tackle
Fifth year senior
Jersey number:
Last year:
I ranked Stueber #20 and said he would be the starting right guard (LINK). He started six games.
TTB Rating:

In some ways Stueber is Michigan’s most experienced offensive lineman. Not in years (Andrew Vastardis is in his sixth year), but in playing time. After redshirting in 2017 and playing minimally in 2018, Stueber was in a battle for the starting right tackle job with Jalen Mayfield in 2020 when Stueber’s ACL quit on him. He returned in 2020 to become the starting right guard, eventually bumping out to tackle when Mayfield himself got hurt. Stueber acquitted himself fairly well and was one of just two linemen to start every game.

I debated placing Stueber higher on this list, but I think Michigan has depth on the offensive line – especially after starting so many guys in 2020 – and there are a bunch of key, seemingly top-heavy positions. Stueber is probably not looking at being a high draft pick in the NFL, but he is massive, has some versatility, and has turned out to be a solid leader. The expectation is that he starts at right tackle, with Vastardis at center and Zak Zinter at right guard.

Prediction: Starting right tackle
