Ken Wilkins is going to be good

Ken Wilkins looks like he is gonna be a good player. He is 6 foot 3 inches and weighs 244. Is he going to be a defensive end or is going to play the quick position? It seems that if he adds 20 or 30 pounds of muscle he could be a great every down defensive end. He has a lot of potential to be a very good player at Michigan. Also what is the outlook when brandon graham leaves, who will replace him?

Not that I don't believe you, but what besides his size and recruiting rankings make you so sure of this? Are you clairvoyant? I expect him to be good too, but I don't get the point of this post.

Big Gulps huh?

You never know, he could be. He's got the size, but it all depends on how he camps. I don't think any of us expected Roh to start right off the bat. Most of us would have assumed Big Will would be getting more PT with the lack of depth at tackle. It all depends on how he comes to play. It would be nice to see him develop quickly and get in there, but as of now it is all speculation. Just gonna have to sit back and see how his senior season and off-season play out.

Wilkins is a tweener prospect. He'll play the Quick position; he's not a pure DE like Graham. We have no replacement for Graham, and I don't believe we have any commits who could step in for Graham. I'm sure the staff will find a way to adjust, but losing Graham is really going to hurt us next year. You prolly should change the thread topic; very misleading.

Roh is likely the replacement for Graham, with a little bulking up.

Nobody really knows what to expect from the rest of the guys. Jordan Paskorz and Anthony Lalota are more in the RVB mold. Antonio Kinard may have the skill set, but he may also be better suited to the Deathbacker spot. Wilkins could play at Graham's end spot, but I think it's more likely that he takes over at one of the two inside backer positions, provided he shows the right instincts.

Frankly, I'd be happy to see them throw Ezeh at the end, since he's at his best on a blitz anyway, but I'm not sure we're any better (depth-wise) at LB.
