The Jim Harbaugh era at Michigan has been defined by the school’s defensive stars. That was proven again in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Harbaugh is still looking to solve his offensive issues, and overcome the Ohio State streak. Coordinator Don Brown has helped develop one of the most star studded units in college football.
All but one of the players selected from Michigan over the last three days is on the defensive side of the ball. The Wolverines had a pair of stars go towards the top of the first round as well.
Linebacker Devin Bush and defensive lineman Rashan Gary were both off the board early on Thursday. The Pittsburgh Steelers jumped into the top 10 to nab their guy in Bush.
Devin Bush and Rashan Gary were two of five total Michigan Wolverines taken in the 2019 NFL Draft.
The full list of Michigan players, and where they were selected:
10. LB Devin Bush - Pittsburgh Steelers
12. DE Rashan Gary - Green Bay Packers
77. EDGE Chase Winovich - New England Patriots
79. CB David Long - Los Angeles Rams
141. TE Zach Gentry - Pittsburgh Steelers
Gary was one of the most hotly debated played at the top of the draft. He is a tremendous talent, and tested off the charts, but production wasn't always there at UM. The Packers are starting him off with the outside linebackers, which is an interesting wrinkle. He'll be a very interesting one to follow this fall.
