Shea Patterson invited back to Michigan for team's pro day
Shea Patterson didn’t get his opportunity to participate in Michigan’s pro day in 2020, canceled because of the pandemic. But the former Wolverines starting quarterback was invited back to Ann Arbor to partake in it this year.
Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News reported on Friday that Patterson was invited back to Michigan for the team’s pro day. While he did receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine after the 2019 season, he did not get the opportunity to take part in the spring pro day in Ann Arbor, with the COVID-19 pandemic hitting.

Per Chengelis, Patterson threw and worked out with wide receiver Nico Collins before making a return trip to Ann Arbor. The former U-M gunslinger was not selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Following the draft, Patterson was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Kansas City Chiefs in early May. He was then waived by the franchise in mid-July.
In two seasons as the Wolverines starter, Patterson threw for 5,661 yards and 45 touchdowns with only 15 interceptions. He also completed 60.1% of his passes and finished 19-7 as the No. 1 quarterback in Ann Arbor.
