 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Way back at the NFL combine while Cesar Ruiz was sharing his story with reporters earlier this year, he was asked to name a Michigan player no one was talking about who would have a big year in the fall for the Wolverines. He didn't hesitate. "Brad Hawkins on the defensive side of the ball," Ruiz, like Hawkins a Camden, New Jersey native, said at the time. "He had an ankle thing that kept him out a little bit (late last season), but if you watch what he's able to do on the field, if you watch what he's able to do in practice, he's special. "I think Brad Hawkins is going to have a great season, and no one's really talking about it, which I'm surprised. But I believe something special is coming for Brad."

Hawkins, 6-foot-1, 218 pounds, played in 11 games last season at safety - he missed the Indiana and Ohio State games because of the leg injury that never was specified by Michigan, but practiced for the Citrus Bowl against Alabama and played some snaps. He finished the season with 53 tackles and was named the team's most improved defensive player. He and Dax Hill, a freshman last season, are projected to be the starting safeties this season. Bob Shoop, Michigan's new safeties coach, appeared on the "In the Trenches" podcast in March and already had a good feel for Hawkins' abilities. "He brings a tremendous amount of experience," Shoop said. "I think the expectations are he's going to be one of the leaders of this unit." - Detroit News
