When RichRod was hired, an oft repeated complaint was that Michigan's presence in the NFL would fade as we moved from a Pro-Style Offense to a Spread Offense, and that this would effect recruiting. Well here is Mel Kiper's latest draft board:
Around half of the projected first rounders are in a spread system. Yes, around half of those are defensive players, but still - I think it's clear that the offensive system a team runs has no effect on a player's NFL prospects. And that applies to every position - the only first round RB (Spiller) and 1 of the 2 first round QBs (Bradford) run spread offenses.
