The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard lists Michigan S Tyree Kinnel as a disappointment from the practices at the East-West Shrine Game.
Ledyard notes that Kinnel didn't stand out at all, and when he was on display in one-on-one opportunities, he was "smoked." He does not that Kinnel (5'11/215) was more of a box player in his time with the Wolverines, so asking him to stand out in that sort of situation was probably asking too much. Still, Ledyard's summary paints a bit of a bleak picture. "...But Kinnel didn’t really move the needle for me in any capacity, which was not the end result I was hoping for." Jan 18 - 3:49 PM

Michigan senior S Tyree Kinnell accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Michigan's defense was loaded with stars, but Kinnel (5'11/215) didn't get enough credit for being a stabilizing force for the Wolverines, outside of, well, you know. NFL Draft Scout's Ric Serritella noted that he's able to diagnose plays, but also has the athleticism to make those plays as well. He's a late-round pick at this point, but testing well and playing well at events like this could see him move up draft boards, quite easily.

NFL Draft Scout's Rick Serritella lists Michigan senior S Tyree Kinnel as a prospect to watch during Saturday's game against Ohio State.

There are a lot of Michigan stars on defense, but Kinnel (5'11/215) often gets overlooked as a leader for the Wolverines. He leads the team with 60 tackles, and he had nine of those in the victory over Indiana last Saturday. "He does an excellent job of diagnosing pre-snap reads and communicates well on the field, making sure his teammates are lined up properly," writes Serritella. "The team captain has been praised by the coaching staff for his work ethic and has always played a key role on special teams, which bodes well for his draft stock." Right now, he projects as a mid-round pick, but a strong performance against the quality Buckeyes' offense could go a long way in improving that stock.
