If you could take one non-QB off any CFB team in the country and add to Michigan this year...who would it be?

Again in my effort to plant one tree a day during the dog days of OT season... Here's another hypothetical.

One I like much better than the if you could take a player from OSU/MSU someone asks every year. Fuck OSU/MSU.

If you could take one non-QB off any CFB team in the country and add to Michigan this year...who would it be? I say no QB so it's not a million Watson from Clemson posts.

And I know the OP said screw OSU/MSU, but the upside of the McMillian pick is that it also simultaneously depletes OSU as well.

But I do agree that if the defense is as good as people say it is, we could likely paper-over LB issues this year.  My pick would be either Fournette, McCaffrey, or as others have said, whoever the best left tackle is in the country.

Rueben Foster from Alabama. A run stopping force up the middle is the only weak link I see on this defense, and my grandpa told me that defense wins championships.

Kid is explosive and a proven RB. Always nice to have a game breaker.

Runner-up, JuJu Smith-Shuster, USC WR, home-run speed and great size.

I think he does a little better catching out the backfield than Fournette, and screens are a huge part of Harbaugh's offensive package.

2nd would be McCafferey for the same reason.  Not sure why, but I question his durability more, even though Dalvin is on the injury report way more often.

That's what I was going to say. I'd take Johnson though - too much off-field drama with Robinson.

2nd option is Dan Feeney. A slighlty awkward fit, but I'm sick of seeing our RG get destroyed/block air/pull like he's got a 40% move debuff.

I think if our OL improves significantly, this is a special, special year.
