So Frank Clark to SDE? Man's almost 280 in the spring. Wow. Also, did Richardson add any weight? 162? Still pretty light... Also, was kind of hoping Funchess would add a little more weight to make him a little more of a blocking threat. And did AJ Williams slim down or did I just imagine him as heavier last year?

Really thought Bars and Magnuson would have put on more weight by now.

Tuley-Tillman has cut down, which is good. A lot of his weight was bad weight. Rivals lists him at 307.

Eh, they're only in their first spring. It's not only just adding weight, but transforming the weight to good weight. They may have had to do more of that than expected and haven't had the chance to add additional good bulk yet. They still have summer as well and neither will hopefully have to contribute much this year.

They're still in their freshman year of college, so being in the mid-280's isn't concerning at all.  By the beginning of fall, they're both within range of 290 lbs. as redshirt freshmen.  Our senior starting tackles are 308 and 303, and our likely starting guard (Kalis) is 297 right now.  So they're not far off.

Some ? marks
Funchess 228 ( no change)
Miller 291 ( only gained 3 lbs)
Bryant 325 (gained 7, maybe needed to trim)

because so many folks said he didn't beat Mealor based on his "slight" build at 288. 288 is not large, but his inability to win the job was more than weight, especially with Mealer's poor reach blocking and assignment blocks.

Now Hoke said "we have to find a center" in his presser the other day. A weak C will hinder us again. I would start Kugler if he has the athleticism to reach block as anticipated.

Some selected averaged by position / position group from the entire roster rather than any projected two-deep:

Offensive line - 6 ft., 6 inches and 300 lbs

Defensive line - 6 ft., 3 inches and 299 lbs

Defensive end - 6 ft, 4 inches and 265 lbs

Linebacker - 6 ft., 2 inches and 227 lbs

Running back - 5 ft, 10 inches and 202 lbs

Tight end - 6 ft, 4 inches and 239 lbs

Wide receiver - 6 ft, 2 inches and 196 lbs

I will say that I am really liking that average size on the offensive line.

It might take a little longer to see,  but DB averages should probably look like 5'11"-6'0" and 180-190lbs in a few years.  

and happy with the wide receivers too!  last few years the averages were probably close to 5'10"-5'11" and 180-190lbs (which is what the DBs hopefully will look like)

given enough solid recruiting classes, hoke and company will transform this roster into beasts.  i have no doubt michigan will have a strong, physical, perennial top-10 defense for years to come!

What number will Shane wear?

Every QB number is taken except #16...

Hmm....

On second thought, I rather him not. Because every QB to wear #16 here had mountains of critics. Steve Smith, John Navarre, Denard. 

Thorin

Not sure if serious. There are plenty of QB numbers besides 16 that he could wear, including the most famous one (7: Leach, Henson, Henne). He could also wear Harbaugh's 4, 11, 18, Griese's 14,  or ask a walkon QB to give him 6, 13 or 15. He could also wear 2 and start calling himself Shanney Football.

Remember, all weight changes are good. Lighter means better quickness and endurance, heavier means the player is now a BEAST!!! Therefore, Pipkins is now super svelte and ready to dominate. Bryant is going to be an absolute mauler in the middle on the way to all Big 10 honors.
