Taylor Lewan to file paperwork with NFL Draft advisory board

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan junior left tackle Taylor Lewan will hope to gain a better grasp of his NFL Draft status after submitting his name to the advisory board.

Following another strong season where he anchored Michigan's offensive line from the left side, junior tackle Taylor Lewan filed his paperwork with the NFL Draft advisory board according to a report by Kyle Meinke of MLive.com.

The 6'8, 309-pound lineman is viewed as a sure-fire first-round pick by most scouting services, and is not all that unlike former Michigan great and No. 1 overall pick Jake Long when it comes to both size and ability. Lewan was named the Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year earlier in the week in a well-deserved nod, and is likely to feature one of the most intriguing size-strength combinations at his position in the entire draft class if he opts to leave.

Though he still could return to Ann Arbor for a final season, Lewan's likely top 15 status will make it difficult for him to pass up on making the transition to a pro career this spring. Lewan is more athletic than Long was at the same point due to years spent in a system where he was often utilized for his agility as a down-field blocker, and looks to be on the verge of being the next great Michigan offensive lineman to wind up as a first-round pick.
