When Nussmeier was hired byBrady Hoke, he had to do a crash course to familiarize himself with Michigan’s roster. But there was one player he already new very well—running back Derrick Green. Alabama had recruited Green, but he spurned the Crimson Tide to sign with Michigan. Now, Green will have every opportunity to be the focal point of Nussmeier’s running attack.

If Green could become a poorman's Eddie Lacy, I'd be as happy as a pig in sh!t.

I see more Carlos Hyde, but I get your point.

I have NO doubt that Green will be a stud RB...but let's not forget about DeVeon Smith, who's also a top-notch RB.
 
LOVE having a "two-headed monster" tandem at RB

I'm actually more excited to see what DeVeon Smith can do this year.

With ya Omaha! I think he's gonna be a stud. I hope green hits the gym hard this off season. So he can abuse people next year wearing them Down and bringing in Devon to make them pay late in games. Would be awesome!

I wouldn't dismiss Smith out of hand. He seemed the more natural runner last year. If we do end up going mainly zone blocking up front the guy with the better vision and cutting ability will get the job.

Green can be really good... if he hits the weights. Last year he kind of reminded me of Ron Dayne but without the ability to knock people over / break tackles.

Doesn't matter who you put back there if the blocking doesn't improve. That being said I'm pretty excited to what Smith and Green can do with a competent playcaller.

The potential of a Green/Smith two-headed monster in the backfield should have everyone extremely excited. The big question is can we cobble together a competent enough O-line to give those two some running lanes? As it always has been & always will be this campaign will be won or lost on the O & D lines. Hoping for a miracle!

They still need some WR to step up.

He also didn't have 3 star blocking in front of him

What does a five star RB look like that never sees the field?

Came to camp at 227lbs. His senior year weight. Gotta think he'll drop a few more in conditioning
