Here's How Much Money Jake Butt Will Get If He Drops In The NFL Draft

Jake Butt gives fans the thumbs up after his injury.

Jake Butt suffered a torn ACL in the Orange Bowl.

Michigan tight end Jake Butt reportedly suffered a torn ACL in the Wolverines' Orange Bowl loss to Florida State.

The future NFL tight end will likely see his draft stock drop as a result of this injury, which could sideline him into fall 2017.

Thankfully, Butt took out an insurance policy. He'll start collecting if he falls past the second round, per ESPN's Darren Rovell.

Butt posted the following message on Instagram after the game, saying he didn't regret playing.

Thank you for all of the prayers and well wishes. God has a plan for me and I know through him I can overcome anything! Never once crossed my mind to sit this game out and I would never change that mindset. I play this game (because) I love it, my teammates, coaches.

Still, you have to feel for him. Hopefully he makes a full recovery.
