Aidan Hutchinson wreaks havoc

If you look at all the NFL mock drafts coming out, Aidan Hutchinson is near the top of many of those and so far, he’s probably as good a player as there is in the Big Ten.

Hutchinson may not play quarterback but he plays the most important position on defense and he’s going to be huge for the Wolverines. Josh Ross will be too and if he’s unable to go, I don’t see Michigan football holding up well enough against the run to win, that’s how important he is.

But Hutchinson is going to make his presence felt. He’s got 5.5 sacks through four games and has been unblockable. Wisconsin won’t be able to block him either.

Hutchinson is going to get at least one sack on Saturday, as well as a bunch of pressures that hopefully, lead to a turnover, because the turnover battle is key. If Michigan wins that, as it has during its first four games, my bet is that it wins the game.
