Prescott Burgess was the next Wolverine to go when the Baltimore Ravens grabbed him with the 33rd pick in the sixth round (207th overall). Burgess’ draft stock took a tumble when he ran a 4.82 forty at the NFL combine. He later improved upon that time when he ran a 4.77 at 249-lbs. at Michigan’s pro day. Like Breaston his history as a strong special teams contributor will likely be his ticket to making the team since the Ravens already have a formidable linebacking crew headed by perennial All-Pro Ray Lewis.
Three More Wolverines Go on Day Two
Steve Breaston was the first Wolverine to go off of the board on day two when he was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the fifth pick in the fifth round (142nd overall). The Big Ten’s all-time leading punt returner boosted his draft stock by running a 4.41 in the forty at the NFL combine. With one of the best receiving trios in all football residing in Arizona (Bryant Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Anquan Boldin), there probably isn’t much playing time at receiver available for Breaston. However, there is a need for his ability as a returner with the departure of former specialist Troy Walters.
