Name: Dane Drobocky
Weight: 234 lbs.
High school: Bowling Green (KY) Bowling Green
Position: Defensive end
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #37
Last year: I did not rank Drobocky. He did not see game action.
Drobocky has not played during his first two seasons on campus, but he did win Scout Team Defensive Player of the Week for the preparation week leading up to the Minnesota game last season. When he came out of high school, I thought he would be a tight end, but Michigan has plenty of those. Drobocky is also unlikely to see the field as a defensive end this season, unless a game gets out of hand. There’s something to be said for being a scout team player of the week, and Drobocky’s also the type who could help out a little bit on the punt or punt return unit.
Prediction: Backup defensive end, special teamer
