The Michigan Wolverines depth chart on offense for 2020 took a hit at wide receiver on Saturday, Donovan Peoples-Jones announced on social media he’ll be entering the NFL Draft.

“After much prayer and discussion, I have decided to forgo my senior season and will enter the 2020 Draft!,” Peoples-Jones said. “This has always been a lifelong dream of mine and I am excited for the new opportunities in store for me. God Bless and Go Blue!”

Peoples-Jones came to Michigan as a five-star prospect and the No. 1 WR in the nation. DPJ ends his Michigan career with 103 receptions for 1,327 yards and 12 touchdowns. If Peoples-Jones fares well in the pre-draft process, he could be a round one or two selection. Back in October, ESPN’s Todd McShay had Peoples-Jones ranked as the No. 26 player overall on his big board, while Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller tabbed him as the No. 33 overall pick heading to the Cincinnati Bengals in a mock draft last week.

Now Michigan waits on wideout Nico Collins to make his decision as to whether he’ll stay for another year or enter the draft early like teammates Josh Uche, Cesar Ruiz, and Peoples-Jones.
