Western Michigan’s Braverman headed to NFL

KALAMAZOO — Western Michigan wide receiver Daniel Braverman announced he will forego his senior season and enter the NFL Draft this spring. Braverman is coming off a season in which he was tied for second in the country in receptions, finishing with 108 receptions for 1,367 yards and 13 touchdowns.

“As educators we want all our student-athletes to live and experience their dreams,” head coach P.J. Fleck said. “The timeline for those experiences is based off individuals’ different circumstances. Whether I agree or disagree with student-athletes’ decisions to leave school early without their degree, it is my job to provide them with facts and data (big picture) about opportunities that come up in their lives. We are proud of Daniel for all he accomplished and we wish him the best.”

Braverman has the opportunity to become the 12th college receiver under Fleck to play in the NFL, joining the likes of names such as Ted Ginn Jr., Brian Hartline, Anthony Gonzalez, Mohamed Sanu and current Bronco WR coach Matt Simon. Fleck also coached wide receivers during his time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012, mentoring NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Vincent Jackson (72 rec., 1,384 yards, 8 TD) and Mike Williams (63 rec. 996 yards and 9 TD).

This season Braverman teamed with fellow junior Corey Davis to become the first FBS wide receiver duo since 2008 to each go over the 1,300 yard mark.
