ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan cornerback David Long is entering the NFL draft and skipping his senior season.

Long made the announcement Wednesday on social media .

The eighth-ranked Wolverines were without defensive end Rashan Gary and linebacker Devin Bush in their 41-15 loss to No. 10 Florida in the Peach Bowl after both juniors declared themselves eligible for the draft. Long chose to play in the bowl while weighing his options to stay or go pro.

Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson, offensive guard Ben Bredeson, cornerback Lavert Hill and safety Josh Metellus have all said they're coming back for their senior seasons.

Long was voted All-Big Ten in 2018 by coaches. He had one interception, broke up eight passes and made 17 tackles as a junior.
