Brady Hoke and the Michigan Wolverines finally have the roster and subsequent depth chart ready to go heading into opening weekend this Saturday against Central Michigan. Some positions were pretty clear as to who was going to emerge as the starter for instance everyone knew that Devon Gardner was going to get the nod at starting QB over Shane Morris and despite his season ending injury early last season (try the first game of the season) Blake Countess was going to get one of the starting CB spots.

However the Wolverines also had some very real questions on the offensive line like who exactly was going to fill some of those spots.

Well those inquiries have finally been addressed at least for the week.

Sophomore Jack Miller well get the start at center with Taylor Lewan starting at left tackle and Graham Glasgow taking the left guard spot after competing with Miller for center. On the right side highly touted redshirt freshman Kyle Kalis will get the nod at guard while Michael Schofield will take on the tackle spot.

Meanwhile Fitz Toussaint who displayed flashes of his 2011 season prior to a scary leg injury ended his season early in 2012 earned himself the starting running back sport while Drake Johnson and Justice Hayes are slated to serve as his backups. Freshmen De’Veon Smith and Derrick Green were listed at the bottom of the chart which was somewhat surprising for Green considering he did turn some heads during the practices leading up.
