PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Four NFL teams are represented tonight at SHI Stadium for the Big Ten Network’s primetime game. Rutgers hosts No. 5 Michigan at 7:30 PM on the Big Ten Network.
The Wolverines have some interesting names on both sides of the ball, led by running back Blake Corum. On the defensive side of the ball, there is defensive end Mike Morris, who recently got a first round nod from ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. There is also defensive lineman Mazi Smith who is highly underrated.
NFL teams represented:
Carolina Panthers (Terry Bradway, former NFL general manager with the New York Jets)
New York Giants
Canadian Football League
Senior bowl game
Rutgers has several players who should generate interest ahead of this spring’s NFL draft. Wide receiver Aron Cruickshank has shown himself to be a weapon in the Rutgers offense as well as a special teams threat. Guard DiRenzo has been solid in his first (and only) season with the Scarlet Knights.
Punter Adam Korsak should get some NFL looks as well.
