Name: Conner Edmonds
Weight: 252 lbs.
High school: Richfield (WI) Germantown
Position: Tight end
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #86
Last year: I ranked Edmonds #86 and said he would be a backup tight end. Edmonds did not see game action.
Edmonds has now been on campus for two seasons without seeing the field. He’s a year older, 1″ taller, and 4 lbs. heavier than Ryan Veingrad (profiled yesterday). That might give Edmonds a leg up on seeing the field, but it’s still an uphill climb to beat out the other tight ends on the roster, including incoming freshmen Mustapha Muhammad and Luke Schoonmaker. I do believe there is a possibility for Edmonds to get on the field in certain situations, but Michigan doesn’t have a cupcake schedule this year. At least one of the freshmen is likely to see the field, which might cost the walk-ons a few opportunities to get some snaps.
Prediction: Backup tight end
