“Honestly, I think I’m the most NFL-ready quarterback in this draft just as far as terminology, and knowing what to do on a day-to-day basis, game-planning,” O’Korn said Friday. “I was part of the game-plan meetings with coach Harbaugh, coach (Pep) Hamilton, the whole staff, coach (Tim) Drevno, all last fall, so just on a day-to-day basis what it takes to be an NFL quarterback, I think I would choose myself over any other guy in this draft in that regard.”
O’Korn came in for injured starter Wilton Speight in the Big Ten opener at Purdue. He played in 10 games last season and completed 53.5 percent of his attempts and threw two touchdowns and had six interceptions. He transferred to Michigan from Houston where he was the American Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year as a freshman in 2013. He threw for 3,117 yards and led all true freshman nationally with 28 touchdowns.
