Mike was a force last year for the Boilers. He was an anchor in the middle that made things happen. He was taken in the 2nd round of the NFL Draft this year by the Green Bay Packers which made me very happy. A player that I followed his whole four years going to my favorite NFL team. With some attrition at the defensive tackle spot going into camp Mike has an excellent chance to get some reps with the first team as a rookie.
I took this picture last season as Mike was taking down Northwestern tailback Arby Fields. Since I took the picture I really have loved how it looked. Hopefully I can get one of him in a Packer uniform this year.
