How does everybody feel about Michigan's situation at DB and,
specifically at CB, in 2009 and beyond? We lose Trent, Harrison, Doug
Dutch and Charles Stewart. That will leave Michigan with the following
CBs - Warren (Jr), Cissoko (So), Wollfolk (So)
S - Brown (Sr), Chambers (Jr), Michael Williams (So), Branden Smith (So)
Unclear if CB or S - JT FLoyd (R Fr), Justin Turner (Fr)
or may not be a DB - James Rogers (Jr) is probably a WR, DeWayne Peace
(Fr) is probably a CB, Justin Feagin (R Fr) is looking more and more
like a DB, Mike Jones (Fr) and Isaiah Bell (Fr) - at least one of which
is probably an OLB.
So, what I'm getting at is this: is anybody else worried about CB in 2009 and 2010?
I know Michigan lists Turner at CB, but it seems both recruiting sites see him as a safety - reasonable for a guy his size. Peace may end up being stellar at CB. If Peace, Turner and Floyd all end up as good corners, maybe we're ok, but isn't it just as possible that only one of those guys ends up being a good corner?
Besides the starters (Cissoko and Warren), who will provide depth in 2009?
If Warren leaves after his junior year, who will start opposite Cissoko in 2010?
Sky isn;t falling or anything, but this seems like an area to address in recruiting this year.
