Donovan Warren Update

Michigan's top CB, Junior Donovan Warren is likely to be back for the Maize and Blue next year, giving a huge boost to the Michigan secondary. Warren has been a standout player in a below average defense, picking up four interceptions this season. He is one of the top corners in the Big Ten and could make the conference 1st team.

Warren could enter the NFL draft this year, and would go in the first couple of rounds. When speaking to, Warren gave the impression he would be back next year, however nothing is decided for good just yet.

If Warren were to come back, the secondary next year would actually look quite promising. Warren and Woolfolk would be two experienced players with lots of speed, and there would be young talent with players like Vlad Emillen, Brandon Smith, J.T Turner and then the recruits from the 2010 class. 

Warren has to do whats best for him and his family though, and being rated so highly by the top draft analysts, no one could blame him for wanting to go to the NFL. However...Brandon Graham was in a similar position last year, he came back for his final year of college and improved his draft stock even further.


  1. The same Brandon Smith who started at linebacker against Purdue? Don't count on another position switch back to safety. When talking young talent at safety, you must mean Mike Williams, right? RIGHT? sigh....

  2. Mike Williams, former 4 star recruit, ahh such high hopes! Another year in the Greg Robinson defense should do him good, we'll see a big improvement from him next year.
    VERY young talent at safety could come from Marvin Robinson, Carvin Johnson (looks like a true machine on video), and also there are other defensive backs who could be moved to safety.
