SPARQ numbers are not the be all end all.  Mike Mitchell had really good SPARQ numbers as well.  Personally, I think McLaurin lost out in his battle with Paris Campbell.  I doubt you see much of him this year.  I could be absolutely wrong, and I am basing this only on playing time last year.

I would agree, but dominant corners are as well.  Marcus Peters fell all the way to 18 because of character concerns.

The ravens draft at 6 and if they pick him I'm not sure I could root for him ever again.  I would be really torn.

When was the last time there was a 5 star DT on the roster?  I don't know the answer, but I would venture to guess that we have not had one during the Tress years or the Urban years. Wilkinson was that type of player, but I don't think they had 5 star ratings then.  Each of the last two coaches (Fickell's one year doesn't count) won a title without a 5 star tackle.  It will be ok.

A pair and a spare on the o line would be five tackles. 2deep at left tackle, 2 deep at right tackle and a spare. That make 5 quality tackles. Same for guard. 5 guards. At least two centers, and maybe your spare could be the same as the spare guard. That is a minimum of twelve but more likely 13. Tackles are harder to find so the will bring in a few more of those. I think I heard somewhere that urban likes 14 ol on the roster, which means 17 is a bit much but not excessively so.

I'll tell you what went wrong, Michigans punter dropped the punt. One play the other way and the season turns out differently. It doesn't even have to be that play. If MT had caught one of the two balls that were dropped in the MSU game, or if JT gives to Zeke instead of keeping on the inverted veer one time. If Urban doesn't call the Q run every 4th down. Literally we were one play away and it could have been any one of a hundred plays.
