Jordan Kovacs and Jibreel BlackLeon Halip/Getty ImagesMichigan will miss the leadership and on-field play of Jordan Kovacs (32).
Over the next few weeks, WolverineNation will look at every position on the Michigan roster and give a depth chart analysis of each position on the roster heading into the offseason.

Jordan Kovacs is gone from Michigan and with him leaves one of the most productive walk-ons in school history. The Wolverines lose a lot there, from a reliable player who was good against the run to one of the better leaders the school has had in recent seasons.

Replacing him, though, could be someone who has both experience and a high level of talent.
