NFL Draft Preview: Ex-Wolverine-style

Justin Boren.

This is slightly related to yesterday's NFL Draft Preview: Michigan-style and completely related to the Ex-Wolverine Encyclopedia.  I will freely admit that I didn't put too much effort into this post, because I dislike two of the four players highlighted, and the other two aren't exactly Boy Scouts.  One is a traitor, one is a reported alcoholic, and two are borderline criminals.  So I won't exactly be rooting for any of these guys, but it will still be slightly interesting to see when and if they're drafted.  Those players are:

Justin Boren - OG - Ohio State
Boren, who played for Michigan from 2006-07, transferred to Ohio State and played the 2009-10 seasons for the Buckeyes.  He is 6'3", 311 lbs. and rated the #17 offensive guard by NFL Draft Scout.
Projection: 7th round or free agent

Eugene Germany - DE - Central Washington
Germany, who was on Michigans team from 2005-06, transferred to Arizona State and then Central Washington.  He is 6'2", 270 lbs. and rated the #76 defensive end by NFL Draft Scout.
Projection: Free agent

Ryan Mallett - QB - Arkansas
Mallett, who played for Michigan in 2007, transferred to Arkansas and played the 2009-10 seasons for the Razorbacks.  He is 6'7", 253 lbs. and rated as one of the top five or six quarterbacks.  A potential first round prospect at one time, his stock seems to have dropped off because of serious character issues.  Michigan fans predicted this approximately halfway through Mallett's freshman year.
Projection: 2nd round

Cobrani Mixon - ILB - Kent State
Mixon, who spent one year at Michigan in 2006, transferred to Kent State and played the 2008-10 seasons for the Golden Flashes.  He is 6'1", 241 lbs. and rated the #20 inside linebacker by NFL Draft Scout.
Projection: 7th round or free agent
