THE RECRUITS

He was consistently good and highly productive for the Wolverines, totaling 172 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, and 10 sacks through 2011. He was a 3rd round pick (#82 overall) of the Tennessee Titans in 2012, but his career slowly faded. His best year was his rookie season (22 tackles, 3 sacks), he barely played in 2015, and he ended up signed with the Eagles in 2016 but didn’t play during the regular season.

Andre Criswell (RS Jr.)
Brandon Graham (Jr.)
Adam Patterson (Jr.)
