- Michigan WR Devin Funchess headed to NFL...Michigan junior wide receiver Devin Funchess announced Tuesday that he plans to forgo his remaining college eligibility in Ann Arbor and enter the 2015 NFL Draft. He is projected as a first-round pick by NFLDraftScout.com. "I would like to thank my family, coaches and teammates for their support," Funchess said. "It's always been a dream of mine to play in the NFL, and I am prepared to take the next step in my journey. I want to personally thank Coach (Brady) Hoke and his staff. I've learned life and character lessons from them, and they have helped me become a better person and man. I love Michigan."
A second-team All-Big Ten wide receiver, Funchess is currently ranked as the No. 6 wide receiver prospect for the 2015 class and No. 32 player overall. The former tight end led Michigan in receiving this past season with 62 catches for 733 yards and four touchdowns, his first season as a true wideout. While some around the league believe he should stay at tight end in the mold of Jermichael Finley, most think his NFL future is at wide receiver where he compares to Alshon Jeffery. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
