Michigan will have considerable representation at the upcoming NFL Combine in Indianapolis as 14 players are included on the NFL’s recently released list of participants.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh last October predicted the Wolverines would have multiple players heading to the league.

“I don’t know how many guys we’ll get drafted, but it’ll be double digits,” Harbaugh said on his radio show. “That’s awesome.”

The players who will work out at the combine Feb. 28-March 6 are: offensive lineman Ben Braden; tight end Jake Butt; defensive linemen Taco Charlton, Ryan Glasgow and Chris Wormley; receivers Jehu Chesson and Amara Darboh; defensive backs Jeremy Clark, Delano Hill, Jourdan Lewis, Jabrill Peppers and Channing Stribling; linebacker Ben Gedeon; and running back De’Veon Smith.

Offensive linemen Erik Magnuson and Kyle Kalis are not on the list.

Butt suffered a torn ACL in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 30 and Clark had an ACL injury during the regular season.
