Michigan's offensive line was a disaster last season—injuries and poor play caused constant shuffling, and the unit never found consistency. Much of the blame for the team's disappointing season rests with the offensive line— a group that struggled to open up holes for the running game or pass protect for Devin Gardner.
Lewan and Schofield were consistent but not good enough to make up for deficiencies on the interior line. Lewan let his temper get the best of him and was lucky to not get tossed out of a few games for taking liberties with opponents.
Magnuson, Glasgow and Bosch were completely unpredictable—each occasionally having good games followed by poor outings. Miller was overmatched at center from the beginning and replaced early in the season.
2014 Position Outlook
With Lewan and Shofield graduating, every position is up for grabs. The offensive line is the main problem needing to be corrected to prevent a repeat of last season’s collapse. A situation this dire would cause some schools to look for junior-college players to transfer in—but Michigan historically doesn’t go that route.
