Comparing Michigan’s 1st Official Depth Chart vs My Prediction

Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan football staff released it’s first official depth chart of the 2015 season and, like expected, it was pretty vague. With plenty of “ORs” nothing is exactly known but it does back up a lot of the reports that have been coming out of camp so far. So, I compared their Utah depth chart release to my camp prediction, and it’s not too far off:
