Terry Richardson (167) is still the lightest.
somehow we're only 124th
Terry Richardson (167) is still the lightest.
Still light, but better than the 154 he checked in at last fall.
...but it seems like we're bigger everywhere this year. Even our kickers and QBs.
on a diet. 338 just has to be too much bad weight I'd guess.
All Weight Changes Are Positive!
I called this a few weeks ago when I saw him in the ugli, he still has great definition in his lower bodu, but definitely some fat on him in the upper body. I trust that it's not "bad" weight though, he guy has a crazy commitment to his physical conditioning, and if he's at 240 it's because the coaches want him at 240. Still curious, though.
That's not fat, those are big bones.
I want to hear that from the coaches.
I doubt they wanted Bryant at whatever he weighed last year. And I doubt they want Green at 240.
I thought Green looked bigger than 212ish in the practice video.
Green is at 240?!?! May the football gods have mercy on any soul that tries to get in between him and the goal line.
Maybe you should worry more about any soul trying to get between Derrick and the buffet line.

Ron Dayne...but fast!!!
Green is heavier than the FB's that will be blocking for him!!
Some of the positional average heights and weights right now:
RB - 5'11", 216 lbs.
WR - 6'1", 191 lbs.
OL - 6'5", 301 lbs.
DE - 6'4", 270 lbs.
LB - 6'2", 233 lbs.
DT - 6'3", 292 lbs.
QB - 6'2", 214 lbs.
DB - 6'0", 184 lbs.
At 240 pounds, I can see Derrick Green running through people in padded workouts too.
Those are what you're looking for in a prototypical football team
10lbs by start of season is my guess with being on campus and having a meal plan.
that Coach Hoke is grooming Derrick Green for nose guard at this point
Gedeon's weight should guarantee him seeing the field this fall, special teams at the very least.
Clark is huge for a WDE.. and I love it.
I love the sizes of Green, Smith, and Johnson. Hopefully all the weight Green has put on is good weight,
Magnusson seems to be a bit slow putting on the weight, he may not be the LT of the future after all.
by the time aug 31 rolls around Green will be sitting at 225 i'd bet. No worries at all.
but just as, if not more, important is what role they will play and how badly they want (or don't want) to redshirt.
There isn't any need for another LB. We have Bolden backuping up MIKE and WILL (with RJS in the mix as well) and 3 SAMs (Beyer, Gordon, Ryan). Meanwhile, next year will be Morgan's senior year and Bolden/Ross/RJS will be juniors.
I'd be pretty shocked if Gedeon didn't redshirt.
Kugler could win the center spot. He has the size already haven't heard much but I know his father is a good coach. I think he could be a real sleeper.
At 6-5, 287, he's probably too small.
Yes, one inch and three lbs. does make a big difference, for those of you ready to argue that Jack Miller is only 6-4, 290.
Isn't Kugler coming off of shoulder surgery? I'd expect that, along with the fact that he is a true frosh, to make it extremely likely that he redshirts.
240? That's alot of mustard going into those kicks!
Less variance in height at this point. Brady Hoke definitely likes his tall people.
So we went from a bowling pin to a missile over the last year? Good work team.
Camp, Green will probably be around 230-235... Some of it will come off...
That's always the case though. You could use that logic to worry about Miller being 280 after camp.
I don't think it's warranted, but if people want to fret on 240 being too heavy, it's the right number to use.
Yeah, it's kind of useless. In one week, my weight may be as low as 170 or as high as 176. When I was in HS wrestling, we in the upperweights would easily drop 5-10 pounds in a day or two. I doubt more than 5% of players ever actually play at their roster weight but it is good to see lighter guys bulk up and bigger guys shed bad weight.
has no one mention that De'Veon Smith is @ 224? We've got more than 1 highly ranked freshman running back people.
Smith was 220ish during his recruitment, so I think people aren't talking about it because it's not that surprising.
I just don't see how we Smith has been almost completely neglected from the running back talk around these parts.
and Deveon is completely off everyone's radar anyway because of Green. He's a top100ish back at 225 and not a soul is taking notice. He might surprise people down the road
Good to see Shane where he is (201)
This just makes me realize how much I want this season to start, especially with the size of our projected OL starters.
Maurice Hurst down to 270, I gotta figure thats a good thing. He was probably carrying bad weight at 300. Also, Butt and Funchess are basically the same size now
All weight loss is good
All weight neutrality is good
Don't overlook Da'Mario Jones. He is college ready at 6'2" 192. He may come on pretty strongly his freshman year.
For his frame and the way he runs on the highlight from H.S. - certainly would not want more on him. He wasn't exactly Noel Devine'ish before. With that said, camp will definately get 8- 10 off of him IMO. Going forward though, he ain't gonna get taller so it looks like he will really have to battle his physical maturity for his time at Michigan. Not a bad thing, just a thing.
Smith is a great weight for his body type and athleticism.
Gedeon is supposedly a freak in the weight room/testing and with that size now he could be one of the top odds guys to play meaningful time out of this class.
Good to hear he's at 237, 2 pounds higher than Funchess. Everyone knew he would see the field this year but that weight definitely confirms it. Hopefully he struggles less with the blocking than Funchess did.
Our TE depth is thin, so the fact that Jake isn't is big news. He's a lock to play.
