Submitted by Indonacious on October 21st, 2018 at 7:34 PM

Long and Winowich are somewhat expected, but quite the turnaround by Runyan during this year. Curious where Uche would have ranked, but not sure he had > 20 snaps to qualify.

Michigan Offense

Jon Runyan, OT – 75.3 overall

Grant Perry, WR – 69.0 overall

Karan Higdon, RB – 69.0 overall

Nico Collins, WR – 62.6 overall

Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR – 62.1 overall

Michigan Defense

Chase Winovich, Edge – 78.3 overall

David Long, CB – 78.1 overall (targeted 8 times, 1 PBU, 1 completion against for 9 yards)

Lavert Hill, CB – 68.4 overall

Josh Metellus, S – 65.4 overall

PFF must be mind-readers.  How could they possibly know Long was targeted 8 times?  I had no idea who most of those passes "targeted."  I doubt Lolwerke knew either...  Although I guess you can't give credit for PBUs to the sideline, benches, or cheerleaders.

Id be interested to understand the methodology more, I feel like I never see running backs grade out well, but almost always a tackle is in the top five. Do lineman scores have higher deviation s.t. one of the ten linemen happen to get a really good grade while running backs are almost always in the middle of the pack?

To think how brutal everyone was on John Runyan the first couple of weeks. The best coaching decision this year might turn out to be keeping that line intact and not making the instant changes that everyone here were calling for.
