Today we will be continuing our series of position previews for the 2011 season. We have run out of time, the Season is Upon us! Because of this we will be going over the best of the rest Wolverines(This is not a shot at these incredibly important players but rather bad time management by me).
The offensive line this year will be led by The best center in the country SR David Molk. Molk Was a huge part of the success that DRob had running all over every defense last season. While Molk will be running the show expect JR Patrick Omameh and SO Taylor Lewan to really stabilize the rest of the line.
The DL/LBs can be summarized by one player SR Mike Martin. Martin was the only bright spot on our defense last season and will continue to demand respect/double teams for the whole season. The constant double teams will help give opportunities to players like “Death” Roh and Ryan Van Bergen. these supporting players will be important to the revival of the Wolverine defense as well.
The CB position was a disaster last year nuff said. It wasn’t just the quality of player the breakdowns were also a result of injuries. For the first time in a few years Michigan will have CB’s and safeties who can be an advantage for the defense rather than a spot that needs to be covered(no pun intended). Look for SR Troy Woolfolk, JR JT Floyd, and JR Jordan Kovacs to be one of the main strengths of Michigan this year.
Well that is the 2011 Wolverines in all their glory. The outlook is great for this season and there is not too many positions of concern. We have finally made it to game week and look forward to tons of previews and insight working up to game 1 of the 2011 season.
