Michigan Football: 2014 Roster — Grades — Offense — Part II

Fullback

Lost: None
Returning: Kerridge, Houma, and Shallman
Additions: None

Outlook:
I don’t see much happening here. Have to give props for effort from both. They did play hard. But neither of the two was overly impressive. Kerridge ran the flood route well one game. Only hope is Shallman and fact he could beat these two out scares me.

Score: Wash

Tight End:

Lost: None
Returning: Butt, Hill, Paskorz, Funchess, Williams
Additions: Bunting

Outlook:
See a bright future for Butt. And if he stays healthy a big improvement. Still think for this group to be a huge plus we need Funchess to step up. He is such a mismatch from the tight end position. Now we get both he and Butts in the game in Ace and make defense single our wide outs or leave linebacker on TE’s. Also makes putting 8th defender in the box difficult. Hill has also shown some skill.

Score: Improvement, how much is key!

Receivers:

Lost: Gallon, Jackson, Reynolds, Dileo
Returning: Chesson, Darboh, Norfleet, Funchess, and a couple of other young guns.
Additions: Canteen, Ways, Harris

Outlook:
Losing Dileo and Gallon is tough. Both played their hearts and souls out. Neither was super talented. Michigan has recruited a number of talented receivers and it is time they deliver. There is no position that is easier for young players to contribute than WR.

Score: Short term drop off. By game 3 or 4 improvement
