Way Too Early 2017 Depth Chart: February 2017

Back in August I took a look at how the depth chart might look in 2017 (LINK), and then I updated it in September (LINK), November (LINK), and January (LINK). Of course, things are always fluid, there will be early departures, there will be injuries, etc. But now that we have the 2017 class signed or enrolled early, things are perhaps a little bit clearer.

Hit the jump for another early look at 2017.

Back in August I took a look at how the depth chart might look in 2017 (LINK), and then I updated it in September (LINK) and November (LINK). With the  season in the rear view mirror, there are some moves to make. Of course, things are always fluid, there will be early departures, there will be injuries, etc. But now that we know how the 2016 team looks, we might have a better view of next season.

Back in August I took a look at how the depth chart might look in 2017 (LINK), and then I updated it in September (LINK). With the regular season in the rear view mirror, there are some moves to make. Of course, things are always fluid, there will be early departures, there will be injuries, etc. But now that we know how the 2016 team looks, we might have a better view of next season.

Way Too Early 2017 Depth Chart: September 2016

Back in August I took a look at how the depth chart might look in 2017 (LINK). Well, four games into the 2016 season, there are some minor changes to make. Of course, things are always fluid, there will be early departures, there will be injuries, etc. But now that we know how the 2016 team looks, we might have a better view of next season.

Way Too Early 2017 Depth Chart: August 2016

20 September 2014: Michigan defensive back Jabrill Peppers (5) gets into position in an NCAA college football game between the Michigan Wolverines and Utah, at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

With Michigan about to embark on fall practice for the 2016 season, it seems to be the perfect time to jump past this season and think about a year from now.

Below is a look at how the roster could shape up in 2017. There will certainly be departures, injuries, reshuffling of positions, etc., but those things are pretty difficult to project a year ahead of time. What we do know is that the 2017 version of Michigan’s team will be vastly different than 2016. The lineup below projects there to be at least 8 new starters on offense and 8 on defense, not to mention a new punter and kicker. Those six returning starters in 2017 should be the winner of the QB battle (O’Korn/Speight), the nominal fullback (Poggi/Hill), Grant Newsome, Rashan Gary, Jabrill Peppers, and Mike McCray. And yeah, that includes Jabrill Peppers, who could very well leave for the NFL. Particularly of note would be the lack of depth and experience on the offensive and defensive lines.

Projected 2016 Spring Depth Chart: Defense

Jabrill Peppers 800x

Jabrill Peppers

On Tuesday of last week, I posted a projected depth chart for the offense (LINK). Today I’ll take a look at the defense, which is expected to be a 4-3 with a defensive back-type player inhabiting the strongside linebacker-type role in some packages. With position previews forthcoming, I didn’t bother to elaborate on depth. Michigan is bringing in some early-impact guys on defense who should be the two-deep by the fall, but the roster is limited this spring since 22 of the incoming freshmen aren’t enrolled yet.

SDE: Chris Wormley (RS Sr.), Matt Godin (RS Sr.)

DT: Maurice Hurst Jr. (RS Jr.), Brady Pallante (RS So.)

NT: Ryan Glasgow (RS Sr.), Bryan Mone (RS So.)

WDE: Taco Charlton (Sr.), Shelton Johnson (RS Fr.), Lawrence Marshall (RS So.)

*SAM: Jabrill Peppers (RS So.), Chase Winovich (RS So.), Carlo Kemp (Fr.)

MIKE: Ben Gedeon (Sr.), Mike McCray II (RS Jr.), Reuben Jones (RS Fr.)

WILL: Noah Furbush (RS So.), Devin Bush Jr. (Fr.), Jared Wangler (RS So.)

CB: Jourdan Lewis (Sr.), Keith Washington (RS Fr.), Freddy Canteen (RS So.), Reon Dawson (RS Jr.)

CB: Jeremy Clark (RS Sr.), Channing Stribling (Sr.), Brandon Watson (RS So.)

FS: Dymonte Thomas (Sr.), Tyree Kinnel (So.)

SS: Delano Hill (Sr.), Jordan Glasgow (RS Fr.)

*Dependent on defensive package
