Erick All, Ex-Wolverine

Michigan tight end Erick All announced today that he was moving on from Michigan. The fourth-year player from Fairfield (OH) Fairfield had been a starter at tight end for 12 games and played in 35 overall, but he suffered a back injury earlier this season and missed most of the year while recovering.

I gave All a TTB Rating of 75 when he committed to Michigan (LINK). It’s funny that when I went back to read my scouting report on him in his commitment post, I said this:

“He seems to be at his best running crossing routes, which is great, because that’s where Michigan will have its most success with the tight ends.”

And the one play that stands out most for him in a Michigan uniform was the game-winning crossing route against Penn State:

Overall, All made 54 catches for 565 yards and 2 touchdowns in his career. (For a reference point, Michigan just played Purdue, whose tight end Payne Durham has 56 catches for 560 yards and 8 touchdowns in 2022 alone.) All was Honorable Mention All-Big Ten in 2021, his best season, when he made 38 catches for 437 yards and 2 scores.

With All (and Louis Hansen) entering the transfer portal, Luke Schoonmaker making a run at the NFL, and Joel Honigford running out of eligibility, Michigan will go from a very proven tight end room in 2022 to a questionable depth chart in 2023. It’s always a strong tight end room at Michigan, but here’s the depth chart headed into next season with the player’s career reception total alongside:

  • Colston Loveland (So.): 12
  • Max Bredeson (RS Jr.): 5
  • Matt Hibner (RS Jr.): 2
  • Marlin Klein (RS Fr.): 0
  • Zack Marshall (Fr.): 0
  • Deakon Tonielli (Fr.): 0

The odds-on favorite to land All appears to be Iowa, where former Michigan quarterback Cade McNamara is headed.

2022 Season Countdown: #12 Erick All

Erick All (image via MGoBlue)

Name: Erick All
255 lbs.
High school: 
Fairfield (OH) Fairfield
Tight end
Jersey number: 
Last year: 
I ranked All #19 and said he would be the starting tight end with 25 catches for 250 yards and 3 touchdowns (LINK). He started eight games and made 38 catches for 437 yards and 2 touchdowns.
TTB Rating:

All had a breakout season in 2021. After struggling with drops and confidence in 2020, he became a very reliable target for Cade McNamara. Whether it was McNamara or the coaching staff, somebody decided to focus on him more as the season went along. After not topping 28 yards in the first half of the year, he had games with 98, 64, 63, and 43 yards down the stretch, including a 10-catch performance against Michigan State. But the biggest highlight of his year was the 47-yard game winning catch and run against Penn State. Michigan got man coverage and ran a pick route for All, who dragged across the field and outraced the entire defense to pull out kind of an ugly win.

In many years, someone like All could be ranked even higher, but the depth at tight end is pretty ridiculous. Michigan has four seniors at the position (All, Joel Honigford, Luke Schoonmaker, and walk-on Carter Selzer), and perhaps the most talented guys have barely played yet, like Louis Hansen, Matt Hibner, and Colston Loveland. All has been named a captain and is a good blocker, so he’s an important piece of an offense that will frequently use multiple tight ends.

Prediction: Starting tight end; 40 catches for 430 yards and 3 touchdowns

Michigan’s Top Seven 2023 NFL Draft Prospects

The following players (listed in alphabetical order) are Michigan’s best bets, in my opinion, to be drafted in 2023. Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan teams have produced 6.3 NFL draft picks per class during his tenure, so it’s a good bet that Michigan gets around this number of players to be selected.

TE Erick All
Senior Erick All was reportedly considering leaving the NFL after the 2021 season, but he decided to return. After a 2020 season in which he struggled with drops, he turned into a reliable target with 38 catches (second on the team) for 437 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a game-winning catch-and-run against Penn State. All is a solid blocker with good speed and run-after-catch ability, and he has a lithe 6’4″, 245 lb. frame. He probably won’t be first round material, but he could be a day two or three pick.

2021 Orange Bowl Preview: Pass Offense vs. Georgia Pass Defense

The Wolverines are smack dab in the middle of the pack at #67 in passing offense (226 yards/game) and they’re #40 in passing efficiency. Meanwhile, they’re #86 in passing attempts with just 359 on the season. Starting quarterback Cade McNamara has completed 199/308 (64.6%) of his throws for 2,470 yards, 15 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. McNamara does not have a particularly strong arm, but he has done a good job of deciphering defenses and keeping the ball out of harm’s way.

The offensive line has allowed just 0.77 sacks per game. Just like in the run game, they don’t have a ton of great players up front, but they play well together. Some stunts and games inside confused the group early in the year, but they seem to have righted the ship as the season went along.

On the receiving end, ten different players have caught touchdowns . . . and no one has caught more than 3. It’s hard to predict from week to week who might step up and make a big play, but the two primary targets have been wide receiver Cornelius Johnson (37 catches, 620 yards, 3 TD) and tight end Erick All (34 catches, 374 yards, 2 TD). However, the two biggest yardage games have come from true freshman running back Donovan Edwards (10 catches, 170 yards, 1 TD vs. Maryland) and freshman wide receiver Andrel Anthony (3 catches, 155 yards, 2 TD vs. Michigan State).

Michigan vs. Penn State Awards

Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Blake Corum. Corum missed most of the Indiana game and the entire Penn State game, leaving the Wolverines to rely heavily on Hassan Haskins. Corum has 130 carries for 778 yards (5.98 yards/carry) and 10 touchdowns. A report came out on Saturday that Corum would miss the next two games, but it’s unclear if that meant he would be out through the Maryland game or the Ohio State game. I’m not expecting Corum to come back this week, but it would be great if he could be back by OSU.
