Why? Well, U-M returns a ton of talent along its defensive front. Top returners include: Willie Henry, Chris Wormley and Ondre Pipkins among others. The depth doesn’t stop there, the linebacker group includes Desmond Morgan, James Ross III, Joe Bolden and Ben Gedeon. Michigan’s secondary will be led by Jourdan Lewis, Jarrod Wilson and a now healthy Jabrill Peppers.
How good can they be? Josh Newkirk and Sam Webb break the defense down and more in their spring defensive preview video posted below.
