TTB Rating:

Hinton was in the class of 2020 and ranked as a 4-star, the #6 offensive tackle, and #74 overall in that class. He’s the son of former Northwestern and NFL offensive tackle Chris Hinton and the brother of former Michigan defensive tackle Chris Hinton, Jr. Myles spent the past couple seasons starting most of the games for Stanford, with 16 starts and some injury issues in that span. Pro Football Focus gave him some pretty terrible grades, but he played for a pretty terrible Stanford team, so maybe that had something to do with it. On film Hinton has a lot of potential, but that doesn’t mean he always executed his assignments.

I don’t expect Hinton, who will be eligible through 2024, to be a starter in 2023. He’s a pure tackle, and Michigan has three starter-quality players at tackle already with Arizona State transfer La’Darius Henderson and returnees Trente Jones and Karsen Barnhart. All three of those guys could be gone after this season, and Hinton could very well be in line to start next year. But for now, I think Hinton is probably one of the best backup tackles in the Big Ten, at least. And I know I’m getting ahead of myself, but I would not be surprised if he’s an All-Big Ten player in 2024.

Prediction: Backup offensive tackle
