Four of Michigan football’s starting offensive linemen from 2019 were selected in this past April’s NFL Draft, which is a massive achievement for position coach Ed Warinner and a fact he and the rest of the Wolverines’ coaches can drive home on the recruiting trail. Soon after the fall Big Ten season was postponed, redshirt sophomore right tackle Jalen Mayfield declared for the 2021 draft, meaning Warinner and Co. are now tasked with finding a fresh five to lead the Maize and Blue up front.

One of the most likely to be in that group is redshirt junior Andrew Stueber, who started two games in 2018 and was the favorite to start at right tackle ahead of 2019, before tearing his ACL in preseason camp, forcing him to miss the entire campaign.

Missing that time allowed Stueber to have an improved grasp on the offense,

“I’d definitely say that my understanding of the game of football improved,” Stueber said. “Seeing defenses, reading defenses and understanding them is a lot greater. I live with Dylan, the quarterback. So I’d always ask him about the defenses we’re playing each week, what he’s looking for. The mental game is a huge part of the game. So that was definitely something I took the time to improve in this time off.”
