“Michigan is very high up in tradition and their quarterbacks succeed in the NFL,” he said as a high schooler. “It is a big honor for me just to get notification from them.”
Even if you aren’t a regular college football fan, you’ll remember that Henne was the quarterback for the No. 5 ranked Wolverines that lost to Appalachian State in that wild 2007 CFB season.
Henne’s star faded from those dizzying days as hyped recruit to a brief stint as the Dolphins’ Tom Brady. Earlier in the offseason, back when Blake Bortles was still considered a starting QB, Henne got some praise as a perfectly mediocre backup. He was 10th on SI’s rankings for the backup QBs.
Joyner: Tevin Coleman, RB, Falcons. New offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian calls a run-heavy offense, as his 2013 Washington Huskies team set program records for carries and rushing yards. Coleman will get more than enough work to easily best his mid-tier RB4 draft status.
Schatz: Mark Ingram, RB, Saints. Sorry, I’m not counting on a 32-year-old Adrian Peterson to take away a ton of Ingram’s carries all year long.
Seifert: Mike Gillislee, RB, Patriots. Rest assured, fantasy owners. Even as so many are backing off the hype of what once seemed a no-brainer, I still think he’ll get a big portion of the Patriots’ point opportunities. Hang in there, and we’ll get through this together.
