The wide receiver group Michigan has on roster will have to deal with a blow to the depth chart this season with Jeremy Gallon's jump to the NFL.

However, one can argue this is the deepest wide receiver depth Michigan has had for quite some time. Albeit the depth is still relatively young with little-to-no game experience.

One of the shining stars for Michigan during Saturday night's scrimmage was true freshman Moe Ways, who had some impressive catches including a nice touchdown in the corner of the endzone from Russell Bellomy.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke also acknowledged the quality night Ways had.

"I think this was probably one of the better days Moe's had," Hoke said. "He's got some talent, obviously, he's a big receiver. I think overall the receiver group, a couple of them got tired because they run a lot. That's one thing we've tried to cut back a little bit, but when you scrimmage and you go 100-some plays and they're out there 8-10 plays in a row, they get a little tired and we have to get through that."

Barring injury, it could prove to be difficult for Ways to see quality playing time this season. With Devin Funchess the obvious choice for number one receiver, Jehu Chesson already being established, Amara Darboh poised to be a playmaker after missing last season due to injury and true freshman Freddy Canteen having a solid spring with early enrollment equates to an advantage over Ways.

Regardless, Michigan can feel good about the talent that is waiting in the pipeline for the future.
