Jokisch, the son of former Michigan tight end Dan Jokisch, is entering his fourth season in the program without having set foot on the field yet. I have seen him on the field in practices and warmups, and he always looks a little out of place – a little too light, a little too stiff, etc. After all he was a high school tight end, and I think perhaps trying to bulk up is just not something that has worked out for his body.
Either way, there has been a little talk about Jokisch this spring getting some more playing time with the twos and threes, but I don’t expect that to carry over into meaningful playing time this season. He’s mostly a scout team and program guy.
Prediction: Backup offensive tackle
