|With the hairstyles of many of his future teammates, this picture is more
fitting than any actual pictures of Jack Miller.
This is the first post of the 2011 Season Countdown (the 2010 version can be found here). In order from least to most, this countdown will outline the importance of the significant contributors on Michigan’s football team to the 2011 season. This is NOT a list of players ranked from worst to best. Rather, it’s a ranking of who is the most valuable to the team right now. For example, last year’s #2 Troy Woolfolk might be less important this season now that Courtney Avery and J.T. Floyd have starting experience and there will be an influx of talented freshman cornerbacks; furthermore, Michigan has experienced options (Jordan Kovacs, Carvin Johnson, Marvin Robinson) at safety, another position at which Woolfolk could contribute.
On with the show . . .
Name: Jack Miller
Weight: 270 lbs.
High school: St. John’s High School in Toledo, OH
Jersey number: N/A
Last year: Miller was a high school senior.
TTB Rating: 69
At #89 on the list, Miller looks like the most likely freshman to redshirt. Linemen almost always take their first year off. And that’s especially true when there are at least five guys already on the roster who are capable of snapping the ball (David Molk, Rocko Khoury, Ricky Barnum, Elliott Mealer, Christian Pace). If Miller needs to play in 2011, that means bad, bad, bad things have occurred.
