Don't expect Donovan Warren back at Michigan

Apologies for overlooking this until now, but Michigan cornerback Donovan Warren is leaning toward entering the NFL Draft.

"I’m not saying one way or the other," Warren told the Detroit Free Press. "I’m definitely, I’d have to say heavily, I like the chances of me coming out."

On the year, Warren had 66 tackles, seven pass breakups and four interceptions. They are good stats, but Warren struggled at times this season. His playing speed get him beat by fast receivers and his agility is only ordinary for a cornerback.

Warren's high-point agility isn't the best and he can be beaten in the air. The picture with this post is of Wisconsin's Nick Toon, an above-average player. Toon rode up Warren's body to the high point and caught a touchdown pass on this play.

Where Warren is at his best is when he can be physical. He's good at jamming receivers at the line and can re-route smaller players. He's a dependable tackler and can help out against the run. Warren has even seen time at free safety, a position he may be able to hold up at in the NFL.

Warren has good size at a listed 6-foot and 185 pounds. Cornerbacks of Warren's size and skill generally don't last long in the draft, so don't be surprised if he's gone by the end of the second round.
