This week on Out of the Blue, Jared and Andy decided to settle it once and for all and discuss the Michigan Wolverines of the Jim Harbaugh era (2015-22). But with a twist, the boys drafted against each other (just offense, defense next week) with a few rules in place:

  • You have to draft a player in a specific year (example: 2016 DeVeon Smith).
  • You cannot draft the same position group with consecutive picks. Runs happen and it’s just not as fun.
  • 20 players were drafted for each team: two quarterbacks, three running backs, five wide receivers, three tight ends and seven offensive linemen.
  • See their picks below and vote to decide who won.


Jared: 2022 J.J. McCarthy, 2021 Cade McNamara

Andrew: 2015 Jake Rudock, 2018 Shea Patterson

Running backs:

Jared: 2021 Hassan Haskins, 2017 Chris Evans, 2019 Zach Charbonnet
