Michigan CB headed to NFL Draft
Michigan cornerback David Long won’t return to Ann Arbor in 2019, declaring for the NFL Draft on Wednesday afternoon. He made the announcement via Twitter.
Long’s decision comes just a few days after the Wolverines were defeated by Florida in the Peach Bowl.
“I know that great things are ahead for Michigan football,” Long wrote. “I also know that my ultimate dream has always been to play in the NFL. As such, I am choosing to pursue that dream and officially declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.”
