2. Alex Orji is going to be a proficient passer soon

There's no disputing Orji's running abilities, but as a passer, he still has some work to do. That makes this an overreaction for now. By August it could surely change, but nothing really stood out that would make the Michigan football fanbase feel any better about Orji being the presumptive day-one replacement for J.J. McCarthy.

He didn't turn the ball over and was good on the short stuff, but had some problems getting the ball deeper downfield on a few throws. Of course the maize and blue didn't want to tease anything major for the season, but McCarthy was more of a game manager at times and perhaps that's what they want Orji to do to.

It was the most he has thrown the ball while at Michigan, but it's got to be taken with a grain of salt because it's the spring game. We'll see what they can get in the portal at receiver to help him, but adding a more experienced body who can hold the spot for a year seems almost mandatory at this point even though the coaches suggest otherwise. Orji went 12-17 for those keeping track at home.
