Well, here we find Dylan McCaffrey, the guy once destined to be the Next Great Quarterback at Michigan who now appears to be headed for, I dunno, Northern Colorado to play for his dad. McCaffrey was pegged by many – including me – to be Michigan’s starter in 2020, ahead of Joe Milton. For whatever reason, McCaffrey lost the job and therefore announced he would opt out of the season and would explore transfer options.
I had McCaffrey ranked #10, which is low for a starting quarterback. The reason? He seems injury-prone. A concussion and a broken collarbone have ended each of his previous two seasons prematurely. The only season he finished healthy was when he was redshirting in 2017. So by my estimation, Michigan was going to end up with at least two starting quarterbacks for lengthy stretches in 2020, McCaffrey and Milton. Now the job goes to Milton, and we have to hope that redshirt freshman Cade McNamara is ready to roll as the backup.
