As Michigan’s preseason approaches at the end of this week, WolverineNation takes a look at the 10 players who are most indispensable for the Wolverines this season. This doesn’t mean the most talented players, but rather the players that if Michigan lost them, the team would be in the most trouble.

Yet Michigan’s starting running back will be one of the most important and critical players to the Wolverines success this season. It is the only one of these spots in which we won’t name an actual player, but the position.
