this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Has anybody heard anything about where any Michigan players rank in the upcoming draft? Terrance Taylor, Morgan Trent, Tim Jamison I assume will all be drafted... what are their projections?
I'm concerned that we have a lack of depth with the Robinsons.
Terrence, Denard, Marvin, Jerald, GERG, etc.
We should probably go after Damien Robinson, Josh Robinson, Micah Robinson, and even Omari Robinson, so we can catch up to Sparty with in-state recruiting, which they clearly dominate.
They give out updates every now and then, other day it was stadium updates. Michigan isn't listed?
I'm kinda pissed, I wanted to see the new stadium on game.
Looking at the UM football roster for 2009, there's always some doubling up of jersey numbers. For example, QB Tate Forcier wears No. 5 on offense and DB Vlad Emilien wears No. 5 on defense.
These are the available "quarterback jersey numbers" available to incoming freshman QB Denard Robinson:
(Personally I'd love to see a QB wear this number, but I know this is a sore subject for many fellow UM fans because of the Braylon Edwards scholarship and short-term memory issues.)
Donovan Warren wears No. 6 on defense. That leaves an offensive player with an opportunity to wear it.
Steven Threet left. This number appears to be available for an offensive and defensive player in 2009.
Of course, Morgan Trent graduated. Number appears to be available for an offensive and defensive player in 2009.
Zac Combs has it for FS position. Leaves open opportunity for an offensive player. If Mr. Jason Forcier comes back, maybe he'd like it back?
Personally I'd love to see Denard wear No. 1.
But I believe it will be No. 10 or No. 6.
I have always kind of wondered why he got drafted so late. He set Michigan's all time rush record and was an absolute beast for us. 6th round is awfully late. I think the Colts got a steal because he is going to do great things there.
Granted his production dropped a bit, but he should have been stronger and in better shape this year. It seems surprising to me that he is considered a late round pick, maybe it is just my Maize colored glasses. Part of it has to do with the under performance of the defense overall, but I thought his combine would help him out.
