Taylor Lewan a first-team All-American? Really?
|Lewan (right): How effective was he really?|
As for production, how could he have been that effective if the Wolverines struggled so to run the ball this season? I mean that got virtually no production from their running backs, and what yardage Michigan gained, seemed based almost exclusively on QB Denard Robinson's open field speed and elusiveness. It wasn't like the Wolverines were running to glory hitched behind Lewan.
Also, it should be noted that Eric Fisher from Central Michigan, also an offensive tackle, made third-team All American. Fisher was a vastly underrated player and athlete (he was a very good basketball player, too) at Rochester Hills Stoney Creek High School, where he played for a relatively new program. He is also projected as a first-round NFL Draft pick, following in the footsteps of CMU's Joe Staley, who has starred for the 49ers.
