It’s been over a day now and I’m still really freaking out about Michigan’s WR situation since Darboh went down. I mean, I can’t even get any work done anymore. How has Michigan been so unlucky this offseason with injuries, position switches, everything? I mean, the coaches are still switching people’s positions two weeks before the season! Gah! Anyway, I’ve looked over the WR core again and again on mgoblue and I just didn’t see anyone that could be that big bodied WR like Darboh could. I mean, I know Darboh probably wasn’t going to be Braylon this year, but he was primed to help take Michigan’s passing attack to the next level.
But then I got to looking, and I couldn’t believe no one had brought it up yet. Scanning over the entire rosters, there is one person that can be a similar, probably even better WR than Darboh would have been this year: Devin Gardner. Gardner showed great flashes of being a capable WR in high school and early last season. That sort of playmaker would garner huge success for this offense IMO. The obvious solution is to put DG at WR.
Why not just throw Morris into the fire. Morris has a high ceiling and a really strong arm. He’s a lot like a freshman level Chad Henne. It worked great back then with him and Braylon, and I’d expect similar results this time around. Morris to Gardner, I think that’s the answer. So, fellow MGoBloggers and Michigan football crazies, what do you think of moving DG back to WR and throwing Morris into the fire?
