Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Aidan Hutchinson

Aidan Hutchinson

Detroit Lions defensive end Aidan Hutchinson made 2 tackles in a 15-9 win over the Green Bay Packers, but his biggest play was an interception of Aaron Rodgers at the goal line, preventing a touchdown pass to eligible tackle David Bakhtiari.

HONORABLE MENTION

  • Tom Brady, QB (Tampa Bay Buccaneers): Brady completed 36/58 passes for 280 yards and 1 touchdown in a 16-13 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
  • Hassan Haskins, RB (Tennessee Titans): Haskins had 1 carry for 5 yards, 1 catch for 2 yards, 4 kickoff returns for 72 yards, and 4 tackles on special teams in a 20-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
  • Kwity Paye, DE (Indianapolis Colts): Paye made 8 tackles, 1 sack, and 5 quarterback hurries in a 26-3 loss to the New England Patriots.
  • Josh Uche, OLB (New England Patriots): Uche made 6 tackles, 3 sacks, and 2 quarterback hurries in a 26-3 win over the Colts.

MISCELLANEY

  • Green Bay Packers OLB Rashan Gary tore his ACL against the Lions and will miss the remainder of the season. He made 32 tackles and 6 sacks this season before the injury.

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

Goodbye, Hassan Haskins

Thanks to those of you who have made donations to TTB’s fundraising campaign! As of Monday I’m up to $1,104.43 brought in through Paypal, which puts me at 32.5% of my goal for the redesigned site.

HIGH SCHOOL
Haskins was a 2-star running back to Rivals and the #1013 overall player to 247 Sports when he committed to Michigan out of Eureka (MO) Eureka in the class of 2018. I gave him a TTB Rating of 78 (LINK) and he ended up as a 247 Composite 3-star, the #49 running back, and #975 overall. A quote from my commitment post:

I’ll probably take some flak for this because people don’t understand how words work, but from a running style standpoint, Haskins reminds me a lot of Adrian Peterson. He’s not as big or as strong or as fast, but he runs with the same style and idea of physicality. He’s not a blazing runner or amazingly elusive, but he has good vision and power.

Hit the jump for more.

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).
