Taylor Lewan still undecided about entering 2013 NFL Draft

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan offensive lineman Taylor Lewan is still undecided about whether he'll toss his name into the 2013 NFL Draft pool.

Widely projected as a top-15 pick in next April's NFL Draft, Michigan redshirt junior tackle Taylor Lewan told The Associated Press' Larry Lage that he remains uncertain about heading to the pros following his team's bowl game.

The 6'8, 309-pound Lewan has often been compared to former No. 1 overall pick and Michigan standout Jake Long, due to both their massive frames and aggressiveness on the left side of the line. But while Lewan still has the opportunity to return for a fifth and final year of eligibility, he admits that the allure of possibly being a top five selection like Long is difficult to ignore.

"I'm leaning right in the middle," Lewan said. "To potentially be a top-five or top-10 pick is tough to pass up, but there's nothing like being in college because it's a great opportunity you only get once. There are pros and cons either way and I'll weigh them all after the bowl season."

Along with receiving a litany of All-America nods by a handful of publications earlier this month, Lewan also became the first Michigan offensive lineman to score a touchdown in more than 60 years during a fumble recovery against Massachusetts on Sept. 15. His decision could be tied to his performance against another likely first-round draft pick in South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney.
