Did anyone realize that in the Fourth Round of The 2022 NFL Draft Hassan Haskins was drafted by the Titans?

He was a focal point of the Wolverines offense in 2021, totaling 1,327 rushing yards and a program-record 20 rushing touchdowns on 270 carries, helping the team win a Big Ten title and reach the College Football Playoff for the first time

Hassan Haskins was the thunder in Michigan’s thunder and lightning backfield duo with Blake Corum last season.

After getting drafted in the fourth round Saturday, the 6-foot-2, 228-pounder is hoping to bring the same thunderous punch to the Tennessee Titans’ backfield, which features the 2019 and 2020 NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry.

“I just feel like I’m a powerful back, but I’ve got everything in the tool bag,” Haskins told reporters Saturday. “I run angry. I don’t want to get hit in the backfield or none of that. I’m trying to gain yards and get those extra little YAC (yards after catch) yards. I’m just a powerful, aggressive runner.”
