Mayfield Leaves Wolverines For The NFL

 

Michigan offensive tackle Jalen Mayfield is entering the NFL draft. The junior announced his plans Tuesday night on Twitter.

Mayfield chose to leave the Wolverines one week after the Big Ten postponed its fall football season because of the coronavirus pandemic. He says the last few weeks have been filled with stress and put him in a place where he had a difficult decision to make.

Mayfield was an honorable mention All-Big Ten player last season after starting 13 games at right tackle. He played in three games at left tackle in 2018 as a freshman.
