Michigan Football: 2014 Roster -- Going Into Spring -- Cornerbacks

Michigan Football: 2014 Roster — Going Into Spring — Cornerbacks

Going into spring football we are going to do our version of the roster breakdown and what we believe going into spring football might look like.

Michigan Football Spring practices start February 25th.

Going into spring football will be interesting to see how the cornerbacks will be used this spring. Does Coach Mattison have enough faith in the young safeties not to protect them like he did last season and play a lot more aggressive defense similar to what we saw when he first arrived in the 2011 football season.

Will any of the young corners get a serious look this spring with having both starters back from last season in Countess and Taylor.

Curious if either one of them might move to safety or at least try it out a little bit to see if they can handle it or not especially with the depth issues at safety along with Coach Mattison already knows what they can do at corner spot so they might mix it up a little bit to try and give some younger guys such as Stribling, Lewis, Dawson, and incoming freshman that is already on campus Watson. Will be interesting to see if Hollowell fits into the defense as well.

Also curious who they will project as the nickel back this year as well or maybe they are saving that spot for Peppers already to get him on the field quite a bit since Coach Mattison plays nickel probably about 50% of the time.

The overabundance number of cornerbacks on the roster and that doesn’t include yet Jabril Peppers who will likely see playing time as soon as he steps foot on campus this summer either as a nickel back to start out or right to the cornerback position.
