It is shocking how bad Brady Hoke and staff were at managing the offensive line. I think back to when Omameh graduated, and most of the people on this board (including, whole-heartedly, myself) believed that getting the old RR personnel out and Hoke's new guys in was going to be an instant upgrade in the OL. Guys like Omameh were thought to be the problem when the OL struggled in 2012; it turns out that the problem was the guys coaching them.

I would be delighted to be wrong, but it's possible that Omameh has a better career than any Hoke OL recruit that completed his career at Michigan.

I'm kind of amazed how long Omameh has stuck in the NFL. At first I was like "Oh, 2* guy? Maybe he'll be a good depth player or even a starter one day". Now he's been in the NFL for like 5 years now

Don't forget, Omameh had the critical block on Denard's big run at ND. Pancaked 5* and future high NFL pick T'eo in to the safety. That 2-for-1 block sprung Denard.
