After a long offseason, the Michigan football team begins fall camp. And in doing so, 247Sports beat writers Zach Shaw and Steve Lorenz break down the five biggest questions they'll be watching from the Wolverines in their one-month build-up to fall camp. The two begin with a couple conversations about Michigan's defensive front. First, they look at who is going to emerge as stars, starters and key rotation players along the defensive line, both at EDGE and tackle in the wake of so many departures from last season. They then turn their attention to possibly Michigan's biggest on-paper weakness, in the linebacker room's perceived lack of depth. After those two topics, they look at a quirkier question in who will lead Michigan in receiving yards this season, debating between Erick All, Ronnie Bell, Cornelius Johnson, Roman Wilson and Andrel Anthony. In the second half of the episode, Shaw and Lorenz break down how Michigan will replace the "ugly yards" Hassan Haskins is taking with him to the NFL. They close with a discussion of Michigan's defensive backfield, and how it will juggle the nickel role as well as safety and cornerback snaps available. Learn more about your ad choices.
