I feel like the south is known for their football, and sometimes the football up here in Michigan just doesn’t get the respect it deserves.

That said, I’m happy to see that the most anticipated NFL draft pick, according to a new survey, hails from Michigan.

Can you guess the No. 1 pick? Aidan Hutchinson of Michigan, of course. The study is by, who asked NFL fans which new prospects they were most excited about. Hutchinson was No. 1! Of those surveyed, 17% think he will be the very first draft pick. I’m excited to see where he lands.
