Michigan Unofficial Depth Chart: RB's and WR's

Next up on GBW's Unofficial Depth Chart, two of the most solid Wolverine position groups: the Running Backs and Wide Receivers.

20 Mike Hart 5-9 192 So./So.
23 Max Martin 6-2 225 So./So.
3 Kevin Grady 5-11 225 Fr./Fr.
24 Jerome Jackson 5-11 200 Jr./Jr.
32 Mister Simpson 5-8 210 Fr./Fr.

Note: Max Martin has really looked good in practice and is the fastest back as well as the biggest, and Mart is, well, Hart. Kevin Grady makes it quite a tailback triumverate.

40 Obi Oluigbo 6-0 237 Sr./Jr.
92 Will Paul 6-3 264 Jr./So.
or 35 Brian Thompson 6-2 230 Sr./Jr.
39 Andre Criswell 6-1 240 Fr./Fr.

Note: this is how the depth chart may start, but the FB position could take a few weeks to settle out as far as depth chart.


Split End
15 Steve Breaston 6-1 181 Sr./Jr.
86 Mario Manningham 6-0 180 Fr./Fr.
81 Doug Dutch 5-10 195 So./Fr.
Note: Don't discount Mario! We're serious.

8 Jason Avant 6-1 210 Sr./Sr.
16 Adrian Arrington 6-3 184 So./So.
17 Carl Tabb 6-2 192 Sr./Jr.
18 Antonio Bass 6-2 195 Fr./Fr.
82 Laterryal Savoy 6-2 195 Fr./Fr.

Note: Arrington has been good, and Tabb is experienced. And, almost to the extent or Manningham above, don't discount Bass (remember Breaston as a RS frosh, how he was used, etc. ... remember, like Breaston, Bass is a former HS QB).

Overall note on WR's: If Breaston and Avant play healthy to lead the group, this bunch is special (and may need to be if U-M has to revamp the OL and it struggles).
