I am incredibly intrigued by the situation Michigan has at defensive line. No, this certainly isn't a great group, but it's not a bad one either.
Just about all of the players on it have interesting story lines heading into the season. For example, will Quinton Washington build off of his breakout season last year? If he does, he'll easily be one of the best tackles in the Big Ten.
Has Jibreel Black finally found a home as a senior on the interior of this line? Ondre Pipkins has all the potential in the world, but can he start to put it all together as a sophomore?
Perhaps the most intriguing player, though, is Frank Clark. A popular breakout choice, Clark is the kind of freak athlete that can take over games from his defensive end spot. He has shown flashes of doing this in the past, but never has been able to do it consistently. Will this be the year?
To go along with the projected starters, there are a ton of youngsters that should earn playing time as well, including Taco Charlton, Chris Wormley, Willie Henry, Matt Godin and Tom Strobel.
It looks like bodies will be rotated in at an amazingly high rate, but it definitely isn't out of necessity.
