Haskins and Stueber Selected during Day 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The University of Michigan football program closed out the 2022 NFL Draft with two Wolverines selected during rounds four through seven held Saturday (April 30) at Caesars Forum in Las Vegas. Running back Hassan Haskins and offensive lineman Andrew Stueber were drafted in the fourth and seventh rounds, respectively.

Michigan had five players selected during the seven rounds of the draft, led by first-round picks Aidan Hutchinson (No. 2, Detroit Lions) and Daxton Hill (No. 31, Cincinnati Bengals) and second-round choice David Ojabo (No. 45, Baltimore Ravens).

The Tennessee Titans selected Haskins with the 131st overall selection of the draft, the 26th pick of the fourth round. He joins former Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan with the Titans organization, and Haskins became the ninth Wolverine drafted by the Houston Oilers/Titans franchise.

A second-team All-American in 2021, Haskins started all 14 games at tailback for the Wolverines, rushing 270 times for 1,327 yards and scored a school-record 20 rushing touchdowns. He also added 18 receptions for 131 yards. He was the No. 2-graded running back in FBS according to Pro Football Focus (PFF) after having only six negative rushing yards all season as well as netting 96 runs that resulted in a first down and 50 missed tackles forced. Haskins earned All-Big Ten first team honors in 2021, was named Michigan’s Offensive Player of the Year and was voted by his teammates as the Toughest Player Award recipient.

A four-year letterman, he started 22 of his 37 career games at tailback. Haskins carried the ball 452 times for 2,324 yards and scored 30 rushing TDs. He had 10 career 100-yard rushing efforts, including four 150-yard games. Haskins had only 26 negative rushing yards in his career and did not fumble in 452 rushing attempts and 24 receptions.

Three rounds and 114 picks after Haskins, Andrew Stueber was selected by the New England Patriots with the 245th overall pick, the 20th selection of the seventh round. Stueber joins five former Wolverines with the Patriots: LB Cam McGrone, K Quinn Nordin, OG Mike Onwenu, S Jabrill Peppers and LB Josh Uche. 

Stueber started the final 20 games of his career along the offensive line, 18 contests at right tackle and two at right guard. He appeared in 34 games overall and made 22 starts during his five seasons in Ann Arbor. A three-year letterman, Stueber was a two-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree.

He helped lead the Wolverines’ offensive line that won the Joe Moore Award as the nation’s top unit in 2021. He earned second-team AFCA All-American honors and was a first-team All-Big Ten selection. Stueber started all 14 games at right tackle and anchored a line that led the nation in fewest tackles for loss allowed per game (2.43 avg.) and was fifth in fewest sacks allowed (1.0 avg.). He was selected as the Hugh R. Rader Memorial Award recipient as the team’s top offensive lineman.

Remaining draft-eligible members of the Michigan football program are able to sign free agent contracts with NFL teams.
