Michigan football QB Shea Patterson signs with Kansas City Chiefs as undrafted free agent.

Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson celebrates a touchdown against Alabama during the first half of U-M's 35-16 loss in the Citrus Bowl on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020, in Orlando, Florida.

As one of the most criticized guys on the Wolverines roster, Shea didn’t produce the numbers required to have a team take a chance on him, even with a sixth or seventh draft pick. 13 quarterbacks were taken during the virtual event and none of them named Shea, including FCS Ben DiNucci from James Madison University, which may have stung a bit for the once highly touted recruit.

Coming from the prestigious IMG Academy in Florida Patterson was the fourth-highest ranked football player in his class and the No. 1 Pro-style quarterback with a day one draft projection. Two years at Ole Miss and another two at Michigan.
