Here's the hypothetical: if you could pick one current NFL player and have him play on Michigan's team next year, who would it be? Ridiculous, I know, but I think it's an interesting question.
Despite my feeling that our offense will still be much better than the defense, I would pick Peyton Manning. To me, you put Peyton in our offense and it becomes unstoppable. I also pick Peyton over Brady because, despite my affinitly and respect for Tom Brady, I think if you take Bellichick out of the equation Peyton is a slightly better all-around QB. Just my opinion.
I would also be tempted to take Polamalu because he would have such an enormous effect on our D, but I think that QB is by far the most important position in football. We could also still use Denard in a variety of ways.
Who would you pick and why?
