  Yes, even Donovan Peoples-Jones' NFL combine numbers impressed him. The outgoing Michigan wide receiver, who elected to forego his senior season and enter the NFL draft early, turned heads last month in Indianapolis with event-best numbers in both the vertical (44 1/2 inches) and broad jump (139 inches). Peoples-Jones' vertical was 2 1/2 inches higher than the next-closest attempt, and places him in the top 10 all-time among combine participants. "I just felt great," Peoples-Jones said Friday. "It felt great. I'm blessed to have the combine, to be there and witness that. "I'm blessed to be part of the combine and showcase what I can do."

Athleticism has always been a hallmark for the 6-foot-2, 212-pound Peoples-Jones, a Detroit native who recruiting services classified as a "five-star," top-level recruit out of high school. And it was on display Friday in Ohio during a mock workout with teammates Shea Patterson and Sean McKeon after Michigan canceled its "pro day" event amid the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. Peoples-Jones made two acrobatic catches during the 60-minute session, including one in which he extended his right arm and make a one-handed grab. "Little bit. Little bit. Surprised with me those numbers a little bit," Peoples-Jones said. "That was my best vertical yet. My best broad jump yet. It wasn't my best 40 - so I'm not super happy about that. But I was blessed to be there." - Ann Arbor News
