Great Heisman Campaign: Graham v. Robinson

Brandon Graham is likely Michigan’s best shot (outside of the venerable Professor Mesko) to land a player on a first-team All-American squad as a defensive end. He finished last year with 46 tackles, including 20 for loss (2nd in the nation) and 10 sacks (2nd in the conference), all despite missing one entire game and parts of others with injury. The Detroit Crockett star looks for another big year before he moves along to the NFL.

Terrence Robinson was expected to compete alongside Martavious Odoms last year at the slot position, but ended up missing the entire year with injury. He should be fully healthy this year, and will give Michigan another option with a little shake to him:

If Robinson can contribute in 2009, it will go a long way towards helping cure the offensive woes of 2008.

The Great Heisman Campaign: Robinson v. Woolfolk

Terrence Robinson is a redshirt freshman from Klein Oak, Texas. After expecting to contribute last fall, having injuries keep him off the field the entire time was not an easy task for this competitor. He was a quarterback in high school, though at Michigan he will play the slot. With Michigan having more than one slot receiver available (and a young quarterback), Robinson will probably be seeing his fair share of passes come his way.

Troy Woolfolk is a junior defensive back who has played mostly corner in his Michigan career, but is expected to contribute at safety this year. He is the son of Michigan legend Butch Woolfolk, and Michigan fans certainly recognize the speed that probably entails. Woolfolk is entering his first year as a major contributor, after playing mostly special teams in his first two years.
