Review of 2012 TTB Ratings

Jeremy Clark

I did a review of my TTB Ratings from 2011 here (LINK), but it’s been a while, so it’s long past time for a look at the 2012 class.

Keep in mind that the ratings (fully explained here) are intended to project how players will fare at Michigan and, to a certain extent, in the NFL Draft. I do not take into account how players will do once they get to the NFL or how they will pan out if they transfer to other programs. I will give myself a grade of 1-5 like a 5-point grading scale (5 is best, 1 is worst) for each player; I reserve the right to give myself an incomplete if the guy never made it to his first season. I’ll work down the list from highest to lowest with a brief career recap for each player:

Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Willie Henry

Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Willie Henry had yet to play an NFL game until two weeks ago, and this past Sunday, he earned his first start. He recorded 3 tackles and 0.5 sacks, but the Ravens lost to the Chicago Bears, 27-24.


  • New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was 20/38 for 257 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception in a 24-17 win over the New York Jets.
  • Kansas City Chiefs WR Jehu Chesson did not catch a pass, but after a safety, the Chiefs took a free kick. The Steelers let it bounce on the ground, and Chesson recovered it for . . . an onside free kick recovery. The Chiefs lost, 19-13.
  • Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess caught 3 passes for 36 yards in a 28-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
  • Eagles DE Brandon Graham made 3 tackles and 0.5 sacks in the 28-23 win over the Panthers.
  • Cleveland Browns S Jabrill Peppers made 5 tackles and 6 punt returns for 43 yards in a 33-17 loss to the Houston Texans.
  • Green Bay Packers LB Jake Ryan made 8 tackles in a 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
  • Baltimore Ravens DT Chris Wormley made 2 tackles in the 27-24 loss to the Bears. So for the Ravens, two of their starting defensive linemen were former Wolverines.
