03/17/2013 - 2013 Michigan Pro Day: William Campbell, DT (6-4 5/8, 311) - Campbell ran the 40 in 5.22 and 5.15 seconds. He had a 27-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-11 broad jump. His short shuttle time was 4.71 seconds and three-cone time was 7.28 seconds. Campbell had 35 strength lifts of 225 pounds.

12/26/2012 - Roy Roundtree flourished as one of the Big Ten's best receivers as a sophomore, but his production tapered the past two years. Will Campbell didn't do much of anything his first three years, then blossomed as an All-Big Ten defensive tackle this year. Two very different paths. One shared goal: The NFL. Neither senior is considered a lock to be drafted, after checkered careers, but both players' stock was boosted recently by invitations to postseason showcases.

Campbell was tabbed for the East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 19 in St. Petersberg, Fla., and said he plans to participate. Roundtree was selected for the Raycom All-Star Classic on Jan. 19 in Montgomery, Ala., but will wait before accepting the offer in case a better opportunity arises. - Kyle Meinke, Michigan Live

06/14/2012 - The people of Ann Arbor can sleep easily tonight knowing that the evil man who slides across the hoods of cars has faced justice. Michigan defensive lineman William Campbell was charged with a felony -- a felony!! -- count of malicious destruction of property after he slid across the hood of a Lincoln Town Car that wasn't his in early April. Campbell had the felony charge dropped after a guilty plea to a lesser misdemeanor charge. Campbell told the judge that he was crossing Church Street in the early morning when he "slid across the hood" of the car and caused damage to the vehicle. Damage Campbell will have to pay for, as part of his plea deal calls for him to pay $2,100 restitution for the hurting he put on that poor, unsuspecting car. Campbell is expected to be Michigan's starting nose tackle in 2012. Campbell had 14 tackles and 2 sacks for the Wolverines in 2011. - Tom Fornelli, CBS Sports
