What does Michigan TE Jake Butt think about entering the NFL early?
Jake Butt and Chris Wormley, two of the many juniors on the Michigan football team who could enter the NFL draft early, talked to reporters about their decisions Monday in Ann Arbor.
Butt, a true junior tight end who has contributed since his freshman year and enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2015, said he is 50/50 to return at this point but wants to talk to coach Jim Harbaugh.
Wormley, a redshirt junior, who was among Michigan's standouts on the defensive line this season, admitted he might feel a sense there is unfinished business to take handle.
"lf I wasn't in the top three rounds, I'd be coming back no question, it would have to be a top three deal for me to even consider it. And what I've been kind of hearing a little bit is that I'd be in the top three rounds, which is why I'm considering it," Butt said.
"But it'll go back to seeing what coach Harbaugh says. I trust him so much and I value his opinion."
Other contributors who have a decision to make include receivers Amara Darboh and Jehu Chesson, offensive linemen Kyle Kalis, Ben Braden and Eric Magnuson, defensive lineman Willie Henry and cornerback Jourdan Lewis.
"When you're that close and one or two plays either way can make or break a season, it gives you that much more motivation to come back and work that much harder to attain your goals," Wormley said.
