Since we won’t have a chance to discuss this ad nauseum for the next eight months (sarcasm), I was wondering where you come down on Troy Woolfolk. Assuming he’s back in more or less the same shape, do you see him as a FS or CB? Last year he was playing CB seemingly out of depth concerns, but next year they’ll at the very least have a lot of bodies to throw out there, and FS would seem to be a role where his experience/leadership might be better leveraged. On the same front, do you think Marvin has the speed to play back there? We know he has the abs.The deployment of Woolfolk has long been a hot topic with me because I don't think a lot of people respect the role and importance of a free safety. With a lot of coaches I know, they take their best overall athlete and put him at free safety. That's one reason why you see a lot of college cornerbacks who played free safety in high school, because they can make more plays from the middle of the field. Who is Michigan's best overall athlete (speed, size, coverage, tackling ability, and awareness) in the secondary? I would say it's Woolfolk. He's 6' tall and 195 lbs. with high level Big Ten track speed (6.86 seconds in the 60 meters); a solid tackler; and the most experienced defensive back on the team.
