Michigan's starting center will be taking his talents to Detroit.

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan Football offensive lineman Graham Glasgow has been selected by the Detroit Lions with the No. 95 of the 2016 NFL Draft.

With his  selection, the Wolverines have extended their historic streak of consecutive years of a player drafted to 78. Glasgow made every start at center for the Wolverines last season and has also played guard in his career, making him a valuable versatile piece for an NFL franchise.

Here is what he can bring to a team, as we wrote in our pre-draft profile:

Strengths

As it was mentioned already above, Glasgow's ability to play multiple positions along the offensive line make him a fit on any NFL roster. He emerged as a leader in the later stages of his Michigan career and plays with a mean streak. He possesses a strong lower half and holds his blocks well.


Weaknesses

Average athlete who needs to improve his footwork. Self-proclaimed "false start king" has to improve his awareness to avoid pre-snap penalties. Some character concerns. Arrested in March 2014 for DUI and probation was extended because he consumed alcohol during his initial probation.
