Michigan 2010 Stat Leaders

Submitted by Jedelman11 on April 23rd, 2010 at 10:47 AM

Seeing as its been kind of a slow day, I figured I'd throw a bone to the MGoBoard and start a thread.

The question here is: Who do you think will lead Michigan in the following statistical categories?

My picks and predictions...

Pass Yards: Tate Focier -- 2200
Pass TDs: Tate Forcier -- 18
Rush Yards: **Mike Cox -- 875
Rush TDs: Mike Cox -- 8
Receiving Yards Roy Roundtree -- 750
Receiving TDs Koger/Roundtree -- 6
Tackles: Obi Ezeh -- 85
INTs: Cam Gordon -- 4
Sacks: -- Van Bergen/Roh -- 8

** Depending on the split at QB and at RB I would not be shocked to see Denard lead the team in rushing with over 1,000 yards.

Pass Yards: Denard Robinson -- 2000
Pass TDs: Denard Robinson -- 30
Rush Yards: Denard Robinson -- 2004
Rush TDs: Denard Robinson -- 4
Tackles: Cam Gordon -- 132
Ints: Cam Gordon -- 30
Sacks: Jonas Mouton -- 1

Considering that Hopkins is going to be the running back for small yardage and goal line situations, it is quite likely that he might lead the team in rushing TDs. Similar to MSU situation couple of years back when they had one bull for goal line and one speedy back for everything else. The speedy one had lots more yards but the bull had the most TDs.

Pass Yards: Cone Jones -- 3,700
Pass TDs: Jones - 6.5
Rush Yards: O'Neil Swanson - 1,340
Rush TDs: Stephen Hopkins - 26
Receiving Yards: Denard Robinson (since it's in his best interests to not play the position he wants to and enjoys playing) - 3,694 (Odoms gets the other 4 on a bubble screen)
Receiving TDs: Odoms - 1
Tackles: Floyd Simmons/Jordan Kovacs (just because walk-ons are people too, and, er, Kovacs was second on the team in tackles last year) -- 110
INTs: Kovacs - 3. E-fact - Kovacs had more interceptions in 2009 than Troy Woolfolk and J.T. Floyd combined. Hell, so did Craig Roh and Boubacar Cissoko.
Sacks: -- Jibreel Black - 7.

Tackles: Jordan Kovacs - 115
INT's: T-Wolf - 3

16 sacks out of two guys is a lot...I could see one of them with 8-10, but not both. RVB only gets 4 or 5 I think.

I don't think Koger gets that many TD's either...he's been sliding down the play calling chart with the dropsies.


April 23rd, 2010 at 12:03 PM ^

Kovacs had 75 last year...you're right that it would be a huge jump. I think he'll have a ton of opportunities to slash in from the weakside against the run on first and second down and crush people. He'll be smart and be in position to grab cutbacks that Campbell, Martin, Roh, Ezeh, et al stuff the point of attack and the RB is seeking daylight. He's going to get tested in the pass game quite a bit as well against TE's and Slots.

Mouton's not a bad pick, but I would go with Ezeh out of the linebacker corps, just because he's the MLB and will be attacking the line of scrimmage a lot in this defense.

I can definitely see Ezeh taking that honor. I really liked Mouton in the spring game though. He was the leading tackler (which means absolute dick, I know) in the game and had the should-have-been safety on Gardner. I think he's going to improve a ton this year over his 2009 play.


April 23rd, 2010 at 12:07 PM ^

I don't want to guess specific yards but I say Denard leads us in passing and rushing yards. Stephen Hopkins leads us in rushing touchdowns and Roy Roundtree leads us in receiving touchdowns. On defense I say Craig Roh leads us in sacks. Jonas Mouton leads us in tackles. Troy Woolfolk and Cameron Gordon tie for the interceptions lead.


April 23rd, 2010 at 2:34 PM ^

Pass Yards: Robinson 1650
Rush Yards: Robinson 900

Tackles: OBI 101
Picks: Woolfolk 4
