better leader this year," Carr said.
Rounding out the starting linemen are
sophomore left guard David Brandt,
junior right guard Chris Ziemann and
sophomore left tackle Jeff Backus.
With an untested quarterback and
highly talented running backs, Michigan
will undoubtedly use the ground game to
ram the ball down opponents throats.
Run blocking causes tremendous
strain on linemen, which is why depth in
the trenches is critical. This is where the
Wolverines are hurting.

abound with talent. Junior DiAllo
Johnson made the switch from safety to
wide receiver during the summer and
Marcus Knight has seen plenty of play-
ing time, appearing in all 12 games last
season but catching only three passes.
Kevin Bryant played a hefty amount

town is the two new guys, David Terrell
