"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
I know Shaw had the sports hernia surgery ... Any report of him participating in practices ? from what i took he would be ready for opening day and i am hoping he is full go ... His versatility to catch out of the backfield and even line up at Slot WR could be a help if Tate does indeed start from the opening snap.
I also have heard Mouton had surgery during the off-season and he is a VERY important player this season ... he showed a great motor last year and i have not heard much about his health progression ... i think it was his shoulder ..which scares me because ..well LBs need their shoulders.
While im at it .. i seen a interview with Troy Woolfolk about him playing a centerfield type of role ... I like his speed back there and he said he was focused on bulking up ... With Stevie Brown in the hybrid role i was thinking of who would compete with Woolfolk for the position ... Mike Williams would be an obvious choice as the scouting report on him was good read and react player but lacks the speed which a centerfield role would need.
I know the answers are far and between as the program tends to play their hand close to their chest ... but just asking if anybody close to the program got some answers.
