Michigan Football Players on Track Roster:

Zion Babb, Toney Clemons, Shakir Edwards, Brandon Harrison, Vince Helmuth, Morgan Trent and Troy Woolfolk

Wolfolk stars on 400 Relay

Defense

We move to a 3-3-5 scheme eliminating a down lineman, but will rotate between 4-3-4 and 3-3-5. Coach Shafer has a plan!

Left Defensive Tackle
Taylor
Sagesse/Kates
Taylor, Terry 67 LDT 1 Sr. 6'0" 319 Starter 4.9 n/a 550 20 2.8
Sagesse, Renaldo Ray Ray 95 LDT 2 So. 6'4" 308 Backup 4.9 n/a n/a n/a n/a
Kates, Jason 93 LDT 2 So. 6'2" 339 Backup 5 n/a n/a n/a 2.7

Comments: Rodriquez is going for quickness and speed on defense, and using Graham inside at tackle at times. Taylor starts, Sagesse and Kates back up. Slocum did not make the grade for Fall eligibility.

Taylor sold on new coaching staff

Campbell shows vicious side

Right Defensive Tackle
Johnson-Sr.
Ferrara/Martin
Johnson, Will 97 RDT 1 Sr. 6'5" 285 Meyer Morton 4.7 28" 425 18 3.8
Ferrara, John 94 RDT 2 So. 6'4" 274 Backup 5.1 n/a 335 1650 4

Pomarico, Tom 91 RDT 4 Fr. 6'4" 248 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Johnson starts and rumor has it that his Bench Press is up to 545 x 2 reps; Ferrara backs him up. With Slocum not eligible, Martin will probably rotate in.

Defensive End-Weak Side
Jamison-Sr.
Patterson/Criswell
Jamison, Tim 90 DE-weak 1 Sr. 6'3" 263 Starter 4.7 n/a 300 n/a 2.6
Patterson, Adam 99 DE-weak 2 Jr. 6'3" 259 Backup 4.64 n/a 360 n/a 2.6
Criswell, Andre 88 DE-weak 3 Jr. 6'2" 264 Backup n/a n/a 350 n/a 2.9
Heinager, Will 39 DE-weak 4 Fr. 6'6" 239 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Jamison returns for his second year as starter. Patterson has improved his speed and conditioning and will back up Jamison along with former Fullback and Tight End, Criswell.

Defensive End-Strong Side
Graham/VanBergen
Banks
Graham, Brandon 55 DE-strong 1 Jr. 6'2" 270 Starter 4.63 26" 385 n/a 3.2
VanBergen, Ryan 53 DE-strong 2 Fr. 6'6" 265 Maulbetsch 4.9 n/a 345 27 3.7
Banks, Greg 92 DE-strong 3 So. 6'4" 258 Backup 4.7 n/a 310 n/a 3
North, Tim 89 DE-strong 4 Jr. 6'1" 260 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Graham starts, but goes to tackle with VanBergen coming in for obvious passing situations to give us a better pass rush and a more mobile line. Graham was at 287, went down to 250 and is up to 269; he now can bench press 475 x 2. Banks will also back up.

Comments: Panter and Thompson battle for the other inside linebacker position: WILL. Brandon Logan, Brandon Herron, Kenny Demens and Taylor Hill will battle for playing time. Zac Fortier and Paul Gyarmati also join the linebacking corps as walk-ons.

Williams, Michael 40 Nickel 3 Fr. 5'11" 185 Redshirt 4.44 40" 275 n/a 3.5

Comments: Brandon Harrison returns for his Senior year. Michael Williams backs him up along with Dutch who has been playing here much of Spring. Floyd said he'd get a shot at cornerback and safety. Don't be surprised to see Wolfolk get some Nickel action.
