Today’s Topic: Who will be the second Wolverine taken in the 2018 NFL Draft?

Unless something crazy happens, Maurice Hurst is going to be the first Wolverine taken. But which Wolverine will come immediately after him?

NCAA Football: Big Ten Media Days Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight’s the night. Finally. The 2018 NFL Draft. I don’t know about yourself, but I love everything to do with the draft. The mocks leading up to it, the rumors swirling around the top picks, whether teams will trade up or down. There are so many things that make the NFL Draft great.

One rumor that may not sit well with Michigan fans is centered around Maurice Hurst. There have been rumors over the last few days that Hurst will slip out of the first round...and possibly not be taken until Day 3.

I’d be really surprised if Hurst fell to Day 3 of the draft just because of a heart condition that was picked up by scouts and teams back in early March. The same heart condition he’s known about for a long time, and the same heart condition NFL defensive tackle Star Lotulelei was flagged for before he was selected 14th overall in the 2013 draft.

I don’t believe Hurst will fall that far (I hope not at least). Regardless, he should still be the first Michigan player taken in the draft. But the question I want to propose to you today is this — who will be the second Michigan player drafted this year?

I think it’ll be offensive lineman Mason Cole. NFL teams love versatility, and that’s exactly what Cole brings to the table. He started out as a left tackle for Michigan, but played center throughout his entire junior year, which he absolutely excelled at. Last year, he went back to left tackle and played solid for what he had to work with.

You’re up.


Who do you think will be the second Wolverine taken this weekend?
