This may be the matchup that most fans will have their eye on. How will that mostly inexperienced Michigan defensive line hold up against arguably the best offensive line in the country?
There is no question that guys like Campbell, Roh, Black, Beyer and Washington will have to step up and play better than they ever have before. Honestly, most of them just have to play way over their heads.
The linebackers also have to play great. There really can't be any missed tackles and guys can't be playing out of position. Jake Ryan and Kenny Demens, the two most experienced starters on this unit, need to step up and be leaders for the rest of the group.
Eddie Lacy took a lot of carries away from Trent Richardson last season, so that says a lot right there. Even though Richardson is gone, Alabama won't face much of a drop off at running back.
Lacy is one of the best running backs in the country, and won't be fazed at all being a full-time starter. We may see Jalston Fowler in short-yardage situations, as he weighs a whopping 242 pounds.
Dee Hart is the absolute opposite of these power backs, as he only stands 5'9" and weighs 190 pounds. Speed and quickness is obviously his specialty.
Last but definitely not least is 5-star true freshman, T.J. Yeldon. He was the star of Alabama's spring game, and will definitely see plenty of carries in the opener.
I just don't see how Michigan can slow down this rushing attack. They have to at least be able to keep them out of the end zone at times and not let them score at will.
