EDGE Derrick Moore
Another highly-rated recruit from the 2022 class, Derrick Moore also seems poised to have a breakout season for Michigan football.
The Wolverines lost their best pass rusher from last season in Mike Morris, while Eyabi Okie left in the transfer portal with Biff Poggi who left to be the head coach at Charlotte.
EDGE is certainly going to be in a position to watch this offseason for Michigan football but one of its top-rated signees in the 2022 class — Derrick Moore — should have a positive impact this season for the Wolverines and could even step into a starting role.
Moore is 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, and more than looked the part last season. With a year of tutelage under defensive line coach Mike Elston and just a year to get more comfortable playing college football, there’s no reason why he can’t break out for 6-8 sacks.
Sacks are hard to get at times in college football, so I’m not putting everything on that. Moore should have a ton of pressure next season and although the depth chart has some solid competition such as Jaylen Harrell, Braiden McGregor, and Josaiah Stewart, Moore has future first-round ability and it will start to show for Michigan football in the 2023 season.
