There’s a lot of excitement in the state of Michigan as both UM and MSU should field very competitive teams this season.  The Wolverines are under new management which will help improve their performance on the field and in war rooms around the league.  The Spartans could be a dark horse for the conference title and offer a lot of good prospects on both sides of the ball.

2-3 Craig Roh DE 88 3Jr tall, athletic defender who in many ways reminds us of a young Mark Herzlich. Can rush the passer out of a three-point stance and also drop off the line into coverage when necessary.
2-3 Mike Martin DT 68 4Sr Tough, hard working nose tackle that gets the most from his ability. Lacks the great upside yet gives an honest days work and gets results.
4th Patrick Omameh G 65 4Jr Athletic, explosive guard that turns defenders off the line of scrimmage and can get out on the second level then block in motion. Must improve his balance and learn to block with his legs.
4-5 Kenny Demens ILB 25 4Jr Stout, run defending linebacker with a terrific head for the ball. Very good in the box or up the field.
5th Denard Robinson WR 16 3Jr Could be a faster and more explosive version of Antwaan Randle-El yet still really needs to develop his game.
5th Junior Hemingway WR 21 5Sr Nice sized pass catcher with reliable hands that constantly finds a way to make himself an available target.
5-6 Kevin Koger TE 86 4Sr Terrific pass catching tight end that shows himself to be a downfield threat. Offers a lot of upside and should thrive in the new Michigan offense.
6th David Molk C 50 5Sr Quick, explosive yet undersized linemen that will get looks from zone blocking teams. Well liked and highly rated in the scouting community, an opinion we don’t share.
6th Roy Roundtree WR 12 4Jr Quick, elusive slot receiver type that must show more consistency in his game.
6-7 Ryan Van Bergen DE 53 5Sr Hard-working defensive lineman with limited upside.
7th Darryl Stonum WR 22 4Sr Solid underneath receiver with reliable hands. Did not take his game to the next level in 2010 as we thought he would.
FA Jordan Kovacs S 32 4Jr Run defending safety best between the numbers.
FA Rocko Khoury C 63 4Jr Underrated backup with good size, strength and explosion.
FA J.T. Floyd CB 12 4Jr
FA Troy Woolfolk S 29 5Sr
FA Mark Huyge G 72 5Sr Tough, strong lineman that can play a variety of positions. Underrated.
FA Michael Williams S 40 5Sr Solid safety with a complete game forced to the sidelines with a head injury last season.

2nd Jerel Worthy DT 99 4Jr Highly rated underclassmen that displays tremendous quickness and explosion in his overall game. Can be a game changer up front yet really needs to bend his knees and learn to play with leverage as all too often he’s easily neutralized at the point.
2nd Chris Norman OLB 10 3Jr Athletic linebacker with a great amount of upside. Goes sideline to sideline, covers a lot of area on the field and consistently around the ball making plays. Could make a big move up boards if he continues to improve.
3rd Kirk Cousins QB 8 5Sr Physically gifted passer that can make all the throws and does a great job commanding the offense. Needs to improve his reads but has a lot of next level potential.
3rd Edwin Baker RB 4 3Jr Explosive ball carrier with nice size and the ability to break games wide-open.
4th Trenton Robinson S 39 4Sr Efficient safety that is effective against the run and can get outside the numbers to make plays on the pass.
5-6 B.J. Cunningham WR 3 5Sr Large, productive possession receiver that can be the go-to guy in underneath coverage.
7th Keshawn Martin WR 82 4Sr Fast, game breaking pass catcher with a good amount of upside.
FA Johnny Adams CB 5 4Jr Smallish yet athletic cornerback best suited for a zone system.
FA Kevin Pickelman DT 96 5Sr Nice sized defensive lineman that flashes skill on occasion.
FA Tyler Hoover DE 91 4Jr Tall, hard-working defensive lineman with limitations. Could eventually develop into a solid run stuffer once he adds bulk to his frame and improves his playing strength.
FA Joel Foreman G 67 5Sr Strong, nice sized blocker only effective in a very small area.
FA Keith Nichol WR 7 5Sr Efficient receiver with reliable hands and good downfield blocking skills. Potential fifth receiver at the next level.
FA Chris McDonald G 62 4Jr Quick blocker that shows skill in motion.
