Young cancer survivor gets his wish at NFL draft

Posted May 01, 2017

Butt was the 10th MI player drafted, matching the total of Wolverines taken in 1972 and again in '74, but both of those years players were taken in the 10th round or later. The last time the Maize and Blue saw their third player come off the board this high was 2007, when LaMarr Woodley was selected 46th overall.

The Ravens needed to address their offensive line in this draft which they did with their 4th and 5th round picks.

The former MI football standout had 123 tackles, 33 tackles for loss and 18 sacks in his four seasons with the Wolverines. He had six sacks in 2016 for the Wolverines and 18 for his career.

A Toledo, Ohio, native, Wormley will graduate this winter with a degree in sport management. "I think that's my best trait". What he did for our young players.

"Just the coaches, being able to talk with them and seeing how down to earth and how real they are. Any team that drafts him will learn that real fast". Offensive lineman Cam Robinson was not selected in the first round. His 2015 season ranks first in MI history for pass breakups in a single season, having 22. Ohio State, five tackles and a sack.

The Steelers will also have Martavis Bryant back after serving a one-year suspension.

That included going to a game, experiencing a special football camp with wide receiver Steve Smith (now retired), attending Ravens training camp with a special player and coach meet-and-greet, and attending former Ravens receiver Torrey Smith's annual basketball game for charity. I'm very excited to just be there'. He can hang and catch - pretty good stuff.

Late rally falls short for the Bucks (AUDIO)
Milwaukee made only 18 of its 28 foul shots. "They stopped blitzing as much and got us into more of a one-on-one game". Toronto, should it choose to, can take some small comfort from the fact that it found sanity at just the right time.

Another runing back that has been linked to the Packers is Oklahoma's Joe Mixon. The Packers need some players to step in and produce right away this season.

Thames hits 2 HRs, Perez goes deep Brewers beat Reds 11-7
Thames could be the player to finally provide stability at first base, which has been a revolving door since Prince Fielder left. By the end of April, he had hit 10 homers - pushing his career total to 29 - and was batting.326/.404/.783.

"He blocked three kicks on special teams", said Kiper. He was named to multiple All-America second teams.

Wormley - Michigan's defensive lineman of the year his final two seasons - will be going from playing for Jim Harbaugh at Michigan to competing for John Harbaugh, Jim's older brother, at Baltimore. He also broke up eight passes, had two interceptions and forced two fumbles.

A native of Detroit, Michigan, Hill earned his degree in general studies this past winter. He has good ball skills, and he is a blitzer. "And we will continue to work to get better".

He was born in England before moving to Denville, N.J., where he played high school football and wrestled at Morris Knolls. After taking Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey in the first round, Baltimore drafted Houston outside linebacker Tyus Bowser in the second round, MI defensive end Chris Wormley and Alabama outside linebacker Tim Williams in the third round, and Virginia Tech safety Chuck Clark in the sixth round.

With a body more typical of a tight end, scouts questioned Williams had the bulk to be an National Football League run-stopper.

The only other wide receivers on the roster are Chris Matthews, a cast-off from Seattle, Vince Mayle, a mid-round receiver the Browns gave up on, Kenny Bell, a former Buccaneears cast-off, and Keenan Reynolds, a second-year player who was a quarterback in college and spent most of the year on the practice squad. "You really can move him all over the place because he is talented enough to do it". He earned All-America honors as a redshirt freshman in 2015.
