Gregory Shamus/Getty ImageMel Kiper believes Denard Robinson can be an NFL receiver, but it's the guy lifting him who has the brightest NFL future.Every Thursday, Mike, Tom and Chantel discuss three pertinent issues in Michigan sports. But let's be serious, it feels like summer in Ann Arbor, so we decided to tackle some lighter questions this week. We'll look at the draft, some basketball tournaments, and give out a few mock election awards.
1. Of anyone on the Michigan football team during this past season (including those who were drafted in the 2012 draft), who do you see having the most successful NFL career?
Tom Van Haaren: I think Mike Martin is going to have a good NFL career, but as far as the most successful career I think it might be Taylor Lewan. He has the size and ability to be another good NFL player from Michigan. He's nasty, and big linemen don't grow on trees. Mel Kiper Jr. even has him going No. 12 overall in his most recent mock draft.
