Pick a 21st Century Michigan Player... With a catch

Submitted by 5th Van Tyne on July 23rd, 2017 at 1:43 PM

Name one 21st Century Michigan Football player that you would love to have on the team this year. The catch is that once a player has been named by a user, he can't be a choice anymore. I'll start off with an obvious answer of Jake Long, as an All-American left tackle can really do wonders to assuage one's doubts about the line. Now that Long is off the board, who's next?

JD, no question. I'm generally pretty optimistic about Long and Hill too, but having an elite, shutdown corner on one side would alleviate a lot of pressure from what projects to be a young secondary.

Steve Hutchinson. He played in 2000 so he counts. He gives us a kick ass interoir line, allows for flexibility, and for certain guys (like Ruiz and Onenwu?) to RS. Second choice would be Alan Branch given our DT depth and the fact Mone still has question marks.

I pity the LB that makes that mistake.  I will take my pancakes in Floridated Texas heat please with a side of Gary coming with the hard edge (oh shit... I actually used a RR term.)  

Well ef me then... I will take my 21st century dude as Shoelace in a RR 'O' with Brandon in a Brown 'D'.  What might have been.

Must have football ... must Go Blue!

This 21st century shit has got to stop by the way.  Most of my Michigan memory is 20th century shit.  In that vein... I will take Ron Simpkins for the fucking goal line fumble that wasn't.  Almost as fresh to me as Wormley's 4th  down stop that wasn't.  Since no one is reading this now anyways... Fuck it ... Simpkins to the grave brothers.  I will never forget that.  What a stud.

Both had very disappointing final games in blue. Hall got torched by Dwayne Jarrett and USC while JD had a poor Orange Bowl. Still, I give the slight edge to Lewis. He was Revis-level good for pretty much 3 years.

Because I love to see my defensive backs never face the ball and constantly get hit with it in the helmet/shoulder pad/back/ass/leg area.

I must select an upperclassman REINCARNATION of Braylon Edwards. Before the hot fires of Cleveland and the Rex Ryan era forged him into somewhat of a curmudgeon, he was quite titillating to watch. He would provide a much needed veteran presence in the receiving corps.
