    Josh Uche was late to Michigan’s pass rush party over the last few years. But as he has been given an increased role, the Wolverines a good return on investment for more playing time. In 2019, he saw career highs in both tackles for loss (10.5) and sacks (8 1/2) and much of that can be attributed to the rare speed and burst he has off the line.

    Entering the Senior Bowl, we weren't sure exactly where we were going to see Zaun Baun play. After finishing the 2019 season with 19.5 tackles for loss, 12 1/2 sacks, and a lot of good reps coming off the edge (when asked to) at Wisconsin, many thought that Baun's best place in the NFL may be as a situational pass rusher. But after coming in at 6-foot, 240 pounds, he would be one of the smaller edge rushers in the league

    When it comes to weigh-in winners, you have to start that conversation with Kyle Dugger. The small school safety from Lenoir-Rhyne at a rocked up 6 feet, 217 pounds. That size is pretty big for a safety and going into the season people weren't really sure where Dugger's best spot would be.

    Jeremy Chinn came into the week in a similar boat to Dugger. He was an over-sized safety who had the potential to play linebacker, but those questions had yet to be answered. Where Dugger's 6-foot, 217-pound frame seemed nearly maxed out, Chinn's 6-foot-3 frame looks like you can pack 10-15 pounds on his already 219-pound weigh-in with ease. Now we're talking about a potential LB convert who can bring a lot of plus athletic ability to the position.

    Harrison Bryant had a productive career as a "big slot" tight end player at FAU. Bryant's production increased steadily each season until 2019 where it really took off. As a focal point of the Owl's passing offense, Bryant racked up over 1,000 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.

    Bryant weighed in at 6-foot-4, 241 pounds Monday

    Dugger and Bryant have apparently been playing lights out.

    Curious where they'll land. Many are saying Dugger worked himself into the Top 50 now.
