Drafted and Non-Drafted Wolverine Update

  • Morgan Trent, gets a pick and then breaks his foot in Bengals Camp. On Sunday night, the Dayton Daily News reported he is out until training camp after suffering a foot injury Saturday. He had a screw inserted to repair a small bone fracture.

  • Larry Foote was officially released by the Steelers. He will visit the Lions today. Look for him to sign with the Lions by the end of the week.

  • Carson Butler is in a 4 TE race to make the Packers roster: "In the only practice open to reporters, Butler showed his 4.7-second speed in the 40-yard dash with a long reception down the middle of the field during a team drill. He caught passes well and comes with a lot of experience blocking in (Lloyd) Carr's run-oriented offense." I'm not sure where Carson got this rep as a good blocker. IMO, that is a exact opposite of his time in Ann Arbor. I'm not sure he ever blocked anyone as a Wolverine, except that nerd be beat up that got his suspended from the team.

  • Terrance Taylor is the "largest" Colt on Defense at 319 pounds: "It makes me feel good," Taylor said. "It's always good to go to a place where they need you. You're not just there because they had another pick. They've got a lot of great veterans and leaders I can learn from."

  • Curt Anes had a bad weekend. If you remember Curt led Grand Valley State's football team to a national championship back in 2002 and also set a number of passing records at the school. This weekend he was pulled over for drunk driving and the Police found cocaine in his wallet.
