A couple of seasons ago, it was among the worst units on the Michigan roster. Now, however, the Wolverines linebacking corps enters this spring as one of the deepest and strongest units on the team.

Michigan loses depth at the position in J.B. Fitzgerald and Brandon Herron, but has the majority of its rotation players returning from a season ago. Linebacker is one of two positions to actually get deeper from the fall to the spring due to early enrollees.

Expect this position group to make positive movement this season, but here's what Michigan is looking at this spring.
