Michigan football isn’t entering 2023 with a championship or bust mindset, but if the Wolverines are to win a championship, the preparation is finally starting in earnest.
In terms of the roster, there are few questions, though there are a couple of potential problem areas.
Michigan may be the most complete team given the returning production from last year’s College Football Playoff squad,
but that doesn’t mean that everything is where it needs to be to compete for the nation’s top prize.
Here are the biggest questions we have at the moment for the maize ,
and blue as well as our expectations for the team entering what could be a special year.
Who will be the second cornerback? The Wolverines have one glaring problem: it doesn’t have a surefire cornerback to play opposite star Will Johnson.
Which edge rushers will step up the most? As far as edge rushers are concerned in Ann Arbor, the Wolverines have just one returning starter in Jaylen Harrell,
who is more of an outside linebacker type. Mike Morris went to the NFL while Eyabi Okie opted to follow Biff Poggi to Charlotte.
Which freshmen will burst onto the scene? We asked Jim Harbaugh at Big Ten media days about the incoming freshmen and his thoughts if he had some special players on the roster.
