I really really hope so because the quiet work Doran Grant did to shut down his side of the field including top-10 pick Amari Cooper was criminally underrated - that doesn't just happen. And it was just 18 short months ago we were watching Sammy Watkins destroy our bowl dreams by taking screens for 40 yards
It's really really hard to stop 1st round draft pick wide receivers, especially with college rules. If we want to repeat we're going to have to stop some really good wide-outs and safeties like Vonn Bell, as good as they may be, are too far away from the line of scrimmage to do it themselves. I'll be watching the young corners intently because they are my biggest question mark. Can sophomore Eli Apple go from having Michigan score touchdowns on him to shutting down the best of the best in the 2015 post season?
