Michigan DT Willie Henry declares for 2016 NFL Draft

The Michigan Wolverines look to be one of the better teams for the 2016 season. They have one of the best recruiting classes and have a ton of talent returning on both sides of the ball.

One player they were expecting to get back for the 2016 season is defensive tackle Willie Henry. Henry had a big season for them in 2015, but only started nine of his 12 appearances.

Despite that, he declared for the 2016 NFL Draft in a heartfelt message on Wednesday.

Henry recorded 34 tackles, 10 for loss, 6.5 sacks, and was an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention this year.
