As they take the next step in there football process Michigan football experienced another banner weekend for the school in all facets at the 2024 scouting combine. Not all of the 18 participants from Michigan's national championship program were on display over the weekend, but those who were showcased to the NFL why they are hard-working national champions.

Here are three of the overreactions.

1. Mike Sainristil cemented himself as a first round lock

Mikey Sainristil upped his stock with a well-rounded performance at the combine. He ran fast, caught the ball well and moved smoothly in all the drills. Afterwards there was talk about him being mentioned as a possible first rounder, but that seems a bit premature and makes this an overreaction that could end up being proven wrong down the line.

His vertical jump was eye-opening for a five foot nine guy. He also jumped almost 11 feet from a stand in place stance too. When all was said and done Sainristil tested pretty much in the top five of every category and made himself some more money. There won't be much to improve upon when Michigan's pro day rolls around.

As a pure nickel corner Sainristil is arguably the draft's premiere option. Many clubs use the nickel corner more than ever now so his services will be in high demand come April. That's the main reason it's not that hard to believe that Sainristil could still work his way up to the first round and join the list of corners that are expected to go off the board in the first 32 picks.
