Michigan Fall Camp Update! Wide Receivers and Tight Ends and More

Following my last  update I had a few folks ask me about Eddie McDoom, he is clearly a fan favorite and some like to see him break out in 2017.

I started poking around and my sources tell me that all is well with McDoom and he is having a great camp, he just isn’t as dynamic a receiver as Tariq Black and Donovan People-Jones.  I’m also told Kekoa Crawford is having a great camp too, they are just being over shadowed by the “sick” freshman in camp.

Michigan Football Practice Information

The biggest news is that the offensive line is ahead of schedule and looks really good.

The most important news is that the offensive line is young, but really good and talented.  The OL has long been an issue at Michigan but it appears that Michigan has found a group that can lead this team and salt away games when the wolverines are ahead.

Here is the OL that more than one source claims will be the next great offensive line for the Wolverines.

LT: Cole
LG: Bredeson
C: Ruiz
RG: Onwenu
RT: JBB/Runyan

This grouping is what many insiders think will lead the Michigan OL in 2017 with plenty of depth.

If Michigan is going to break out in 2017 it will be on the bac...
