Michigan TE Jake Butt ’50-50′ on NFL decision


Michigan junior tight end Jake Butt could be one of the most in-demand names in the 2016 NFL draft class if he declared right now, but he himself is on the fence about whether he wants to take that next step.

According to ESPN’s Dan Murphy, Butt is “50-50” on his decision and wants to take a week to consider it before talking to coach Jim Harbaugh.

Given how Butt had a career season in 2015, posting 48 receptions for 620 yards and three touchdowns, entering the NFL seems like the best decision at this point. Michigan could be entering a transitionary period on offense next year since quarterback Jake Rudock is likely turning pro, so the risk of his production going down is definitely there.

But the decision is Butt’s and Butt’s alone so when push comes to shove, he’s going to make the decision he feels is best for him. If he opts to go pro, he’ll look to get in top shape for the NFL Scouting Combine in February. If he stays, however, he’ll look to continue improving so that he can finish his collegiate career with a bang.
