Taylor Lewan receiving draft attention

December, 12, 2012
Taylor Lewan mightnot have made a decision whether he will return to Michigan for his final year of eligibility next season, but the left tackle has been receiving plenty of praise as a potential high draft pick if he leaves this year.

ESPN's Todd McShay has the 6-foot-8 Lewan as the second tackle off the board in his first mock draft -- and that would put him in the top 10 and in potentially familiar company. Lewan is also slowly moving up McShay's board into the Top 15 players eligible for the draft.

Meanwhile, fellow analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has Lewan right in the middle of his big board of prospects and in his Top 5 junior eligibility offensive tackles.

The only other player mentioned in any list is quarterback/receiver/running back Denard Robinson, who is listed as the No. 5 senior receiver in the class. Robinson has two career catches for 24 yards.
