12 THE WOLVERINE JUNE/JULY 2017   INSIDE MICHIGAN ATHLETICS 2 Golfers in school histor y have earned three All-Big Ten honors after junior Kyle Mueller joined the exclusive club with his sec- ond straight first-team honor this year. Three-time first-teamer Michael Harris (1998-2000) is the other. As of May 14, Mueller was on pace to set a school record with an average of 71.43 strokes per round and had led U-M in six of the 12 events, includ- ing two wins. 2 Michigan draftees were listed as their new club's best NFL Draft pick by FOX Sports — defensive end Chris Wormley, the third-round choice of the Baltimore Ravens, and tight end Jake Butt, the fifth-round selection of the Denver Broncos. 3 Is where Tom Brady ranked in the NFLPA's Top 50 Player Sales List from March 1, 2016 to Feb. 28, 2017. The list is based on total overall sales of all licensed products (T-shirts, jerseys, player mu- rals, figurines, matted and framed pho- tos, bobbleheads, drinkware, jewelry, electronic device accessories and more) from online and traditional retail outlets. Brady trailed only Dallas Cowboys rookies Ezekiel Elliott (No. 1) and Dak Prescott. 3 Michigan products were listed among CBS Sports senior NFL Draft analyst Dane Brugler's top five prospects by position for the 2018 NFL Draft — redshirt sophomore Tyrone Wheatley Jr. was the No. 4 tight end, senior Mason Cole was the No. 4 guard/center and fifth-year senior Maurice Hurst was the No. 5 defensive tackle. Redshirt junior Wilton Spei- ght was among the six quarterbacks who just missed the cut. 16 Is where the Wolverines checked in on FOX Sports' post-spring top 25 for next year. U-M was the fourth-highest ranked squad from the Big Ten following No. 2 Ohio State, No. 4 Penn State and No. 13 Wisconsin. Week one opponent Florida came in just behind Michigan, at No. 17. 38 Was where redshirt sophomore forward D.J. WILSON was projected to be selected in Draft Express' May 4 mock draft. He hasn't hired an agent, so he's still eligible to return, but he will be in action at the May 9-14 NBA Combine, along with U-M teammates Derrick Walton Jr. and sophomore Moritz Wagner, the latter also has not hired an agent and is eligible to return. 60 Goals scored through 36 games by water polo senior captain Al- lison Skaggs, who was named the Collegiate Water Polo As- sociation MVP in late April. She is the second straight CWPA Player of the Year to hail from Michigan and earned first-team all- conference laurels for the first time in her career while helping the Wolverines win a second straight league crown. The team earned the No. 6 seed and opened NCAA play May 12 against No. 3 USC in the quarterfinals. 362 Michigan players have been se- lected in the NFL Draft after this year's school record of 11 picks. The Wolverines' all-time total ranks fifth. $10,355,428 Is the projected four-year con- tract — with a signing bonus of more than $5.6 million — for Jabrill Peppers after he was drafted 25th by the Cleveland Browns, according to a projec- tion from Taco Charlton, the 28th pick by the Dallas Cowboys, is expected to get a deal for $10,041,800, with a signing bonus north of $5.4 million.
