List of Michigan Players Declared for the 2023 NFL Draft
College football powerhouse Michigan once again has produced top NFL Draft prospects in 2023. Defensive tackle Mazi Smith leads the pack, though there's a host of others who could hear their names called.
With that in mind, here's everything you need to know about the Wolverine alumni who could become 2023 draft picks.
Michigan Underclassmen Declared for 2023 NFL Draft
To be eligible for the NFL Draft, players must have been out of high school for at least three years and used up all of their college eligibility. However, underclassmen and prospects who have graduated early can also request permission from the league to be draft-eligible.
Three non-seniors are part of Michigan's 2023 draft hopefuls. Mazi Smith, along with EDGE Mike Morris and cornerback D.J. Turner, are all forgoing their remaining years of college eligibility.
Michigan Seniors in the 2023 NFL Draft
Most of the NFL Draft is comprised of seniors who spent four years in college before attempting to enter the pros. This allows those who don't break out early to continue their development in hopes of closing out their collegiate careers strong.
Michigan has eight seniors looking to make the jump to the NFL. This group is headlined by tight end Luke Schoonmaker, who is projected as a fourth-round pick. He's joined by wide receiver Ronnie Bell, tight end Joel Honigford, offensive tackle Ryan Hayes, center Olusegun Oluwatimi, cornerback Gemon Green, kicker Jake Moody, and punter Brad Robbins.
Most Likely Michigan Players to Be Drafted in 2023
The scouting combine hosts the very best from the country for a showcase in front of every NFL front office. However, not every player looking to become a pro is invited to this event. This invite list gives us a good look at the players from each school with the strongest chances of being drafted, or signing as free agents.
Michigan had nine players invited to the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine: Ronnie Bell, Ryan Hayes, Jake Moody, Mike Morris, Olu Oluwatimi, Brad Robbins, Luke Schoonmaker, Mazi Smith, and D.J. Turner. There's a good possibility most of this group hears their names called at some point during the draft.
