Agreed, but you are not taking into consideration whether or not Schilling leaves after this year. I personally think he will stick around, but if he decides to leave, there would be a large chunk of our offensive line leaving. I am not as worried with all of the young guys on the 2 deep. Thoughts?

couple interesting things to note:

1.kelvin grady is the 2nd slot behind odoms (ahead of roundtree and t. robinson) - glad to see hes succeeding in the system

2. kevin koger and martell webb are both listed as potential starters - with the potential that koger showed last yr, I expect the winner of this competition will be extremely effective this yr. (i expect both to get significant pt)

3. no hints at qb

4. Vincent Smith is listed as even with Carlos Brown, and ahead of Michael Shaw. Smith might get more carries than Shaw because he is more of a shifty, change of pase back. But I think brown will certainly be the number two, and if he or Minor went down with an injury, Shaw would jump Smith on the depth chart. (I expect shaw and cox to be the primary two backs next yr, with smith again as shifty change of pace back.)

5. Who the hell is Will Heininger...plz dont respond with: hes our backup DE

6. Will Campbell is 3rd on the chart at NT. (it probably unlikely but I would love for him to be able to redshirt.) Cross your fingers for Sagesse to perform well and Martin to stay healthy.

7. Craig Roh is 2nd at the quick position (behind herron and ahead of watson). 99.9% chance he doesnt redshirt, unless its a medical redshirt. Lalota on the other hand is a more than likely redshirt candidate.

8. Kevin Leach is 2nd on the WLB chart (ahead of Brandon Smith). Smith was a serious recuirt, is his lack of speed holding him back?

9. Mike Williams slotted as the #1 FS

One thing that jumped out at me was the listed weights of the players. I'm sure they all aren't 100% correct, but their are only 3! players over 300lbs.

Michigan doesn't have much beef up front. Sure, speed and quickness are important, but you can't beat pure size in goal line situations.

Stevie Brown's backups at the hybrid LB position are Mike Jones and walk-on Floyd Simmons. Where's Brandon Hawthorne? Is he being punished for the Jihad quotes? BTW, Stokes is on the depth chart as third string WR.

You know the D isn't very deep when there are guys I haven't even heard of on the two-deep.

We're going to need Jebus, Buddah and Allah on our side to keep them all healthy.
