04/19/2012 - Larry Krueger is more than just a sports talk radio host on KNBR. He's also a former NFL scout with the Cardinals who takes an acute interest in the NFL Draft every year. Krueger particularly likes to scour draft eligible players and pick out sleepers. Junior Hemingway, WR, Michigan: Projected as a fifth or sixth round selection, Hemingway, at 6-0, 225, is built like a running back and that's where Krueger would have him play. He'd convert him to a receiving RB, which is an intriguing thought. But why not just keep him at receiver? The guy competes like heck for the ball and was the Wolverines leading receiver last year with 34 catches, 399 yards and four touchdowns. Imagine how productive he could be with a quarterback other than the highly inconsistent Denard Robinson. He also had the combine's third-best shuttle time (6.59). - Kevin Lynch, San Francisco Chronicle

01/03/2012 - Scouting the Michigan passing game: Junior QB Denard Robinson was sharp in the season finale against Ohio State, and finished the 2011 season with 18 passing touchdowns. With WR Junior Hemingway leading the team with 32 catches for 636 yards, the Wolverines have been very balanced in their attack. TE Kevin Koger is a significant weapon, while WR Martavious Odoms offers another athletic option outside. - The Sports Xchange

I know he's going to do a great job for us the whole year."
