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.
Hit the jump for another early look at 2017.

Also, there are several players on here whom I do not expect to return to Michigan in 2017.
