NFL Decisions

WR Nico Collins: Staying

Perhaps the biggest win of the offseason so far is Collins’ decision to stick around. Of the “big three” of Michigan’s wide receivers from last season, he is the best of them and that they were able to keep him around is huge for whoever wins the quarterback derby.

WR Donovan Peoples-Jones: Leaving

Peoples-Jones decided to declare after the Citrus Bowl. He then slid down draft boards and was selected in the sixth round by the Cleveland Browns.

OL Cesar Ruiz: Leaving

Ruiz’s gamble on himself paid off, as he was selected in the first round of the draft by the New Orleans Saints.

DE Kwity Paye: Staying

Paye made his standing official before the bowl game and never seemed to heavily consider going pro. Michigan will once again have two of the best defensive ends in the country next season in Paye and Aidan Hutchinson.

DE/LB Josh Uche: Leaving

Uche is another player that NFL personnel people expected to rise through the draft process. He was a second round pick of the New England Patriots.

CB Ambry Thomas: Staying

Thomas has a breakout season and was arguably Michigan’s best cornerback after dealing with colitis during the summer. We were not sure he’d even suit up this season, but he made it back in time for the opener and made his presence felt right away. Don’t be surprised if he is a captain next season.
