Morning Roundup: August 11, 2019

Zach Gentry in high school

Zach Gentry says he tried to transfer when Jim Harbaugh wanted him to switch from quarterback to tight end (LINK).

I don’t know why a war of words is developing between Josh Gattis and Mike Locksley, but it is (LINK).

Ted Nguyen singled out former Michigan lineman Graham Glasgow:

This was a pretty cool moment for a guy who fudged his way into a tryout, slept on the beach, used up his last few dollars to get to the tryout, and didn’t even have good shoes to wear in the game until Odell Beckham gave him the cleats right off his feet:

Former Michigan cornerback Benjamin St-Juste is still upset that Michigan’s doctors thought he should retire from football:

2016 NFL Draft Preview: Michigan Wolverines

Jake Rudock

The 2016 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. I’m not the world’s biggest draft junkie (you can only have so many obsessions in your life), but I am always enthralled by the first round of the NFL Draft. Other than the Super Bowl, it’s my favorite single NFL day of the year . . . depending on whether the Lions are in the playoffs or not, which is usually not. Tomorrow night I’ll be headed to a friend’s house where a half dozen of us will eat pizza, drink cold beverages, and make fun of each other’s favorite teams.

Several Michigan Wolverines will be on the board, but none will be taken on Thursday, barring a huge surprise. With their Combine and pro day numbers in mind (LINK), here’s a look at Michigan’s representatives in the Draft and some slightly educated guesses about where they’ll go:

Graham Glasgow, C
Glasgow is 6’6″, 307 lbs. and did 23 reps on the bench at the Combine. He ran a 5.13 forty and a 4.63 shuttle time. He also performed well playing both guard and center at the Senior Bowl. He will almost certainly get drafted, but probably not as the top center. It will be interesting to see whether his multiple off-the-field issues with alcohol will cause him to slide.
Best guess: Rd. 3, #87 overall to the Cincinnati Bengals

Willie Henry, DT
Henry stands 6’2″, 303 lbs. and did 28 reps on the bench at the Combine. He ran the forty in 5.0 seconds and a 4.53 shuttle. He also showed a 30.5″ vertical and a 9’2″ broad jump. Henry has good quickness off the ball and can be a playmaker, but he’s a little bit inconsistent. He struggled to hold up at times on the interior because of leverage issues, so he’s more of a 3-tech or an undersized end in a 3-4.
Best guess: Rd. 4, #106 overall to the Chicago Bears
