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:

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.

This is one of the most exciting NFL Draft seasons for Michigan fans in years, probably even surpassing the 2017 draft when Taco Charlton was taken in the first round, Jourdan Lewis seemed like a borderline first rounder, and several others were drafted. A couple players are expected to go in the first round, and another player is considered to be one of the top few players at his position.
