Michigan Thursday: Draft Day!

 This is one of my favorite days of the year.  I very much enjoy the draft for many reasons.  

1. It's the Super Bowl of hope for the Detroit Lions or any other NFL Team

2. Love seeing kids live their dream 

3. Talented Wolverines getting a shot at the NFL

4. Too much football talk for April-May 

The fun begins tonight and will be very happy to see Kwity Paye getting drafted in the 1st round! 

  • Sam Webb has predicted that transfer PG DeVante Jones will pick Michigan this weekend.  So I guess we need some more information on Mr. Jones.  
6'1 200 pounds 
3 year starter for Coastal Carolina - Sun Belt 
2020-21 Sun Belt Player of the Year 
Averaged (last season): 19 points, 7 boards, 3 assists, and shot it at 48%
He shoots over 80% from the line.
His scoring average the last 3 years:  13, 17, 19 points

Yes, please.  

I know Franz isn't coming back, but if he did this special team could be championship worthy.  

  • Moe has signed with the Orlando Magic for the rest of the season.  I hope he sticks there and gets a ton of playing time.

Bob, you know that Franz isn't coming back? That's amazing since I just read the other day that he hasn't know if he is coming back or not because he hasn't made a decision yet.
