With the 2012 season wrapping up this weekend, it’s time to take a way too early look at the 2013 projected depth chart for the Wolverines with some analysis. Note: The only incoming freshmen that I will include in the depth chart are Shane Morris and Jake Butt.
QB: 1. Devin Gardner – Senior
2. Shane Morris – Freshman
3. Russell Bellomy – RS Sophomore
Analysis: Gardner returns for his fourth season as a Wolverine after starting the second half of 2012 at the QB spot following Denard Robinson’s injury. Gardner’s skill set opens up a more vertical passing game that the Wolverines became accustomed to with Robinson at the helm. Gardner has also shown the ability to make teams pay with his feet and should be the future of the position if he is granted a fifth season, something Coach Brady Hoke seems optimistic about. Shane Morris will be the second best quarterback on the roster talent wise, but don’t expect to see him in mop-up duty– that role will fall on Bellomy’s shoulders. However, should Gardner get hurt, expect to see Morris step in as the starter, ready or not.
RB: 1. Fitzgerald Toussaint – RS Senior
2. Thomas Rawls – Junior
3. Justice Hayes – RS Sophomore
4. Dennis Norfleet – Sophomore
