Jamaree Salyer vs. Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo

The trenches are where the talk should start in this game, and how can it not start with two potential top 10 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft? Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo have been unbelievable as a duo this season, combining for 25 sacks and dominating whoever they go up against.

Hutchinson’s athleticism, rush moves, and pop in his hands are the reasons and traits that are leading to some potential top pick buzz. Ojabo has only played football since 2017, but his big jump in play this season has been a surprise, and he’s looked more advanced than expected in terms of a pass rush plan. The tools are undeniable, and if he declares, top 15 buzz could turn into top 10 buzz after a strong combine.

Jamaree Salyer is a very good tackle for the Bulldogs, and he gets a big test this week. Salyer strong working linear as a run blocker, and is a great leverage player who also finishes at the point of attack. He’s stout in pass protection, but Ojabo and Hutchinson will be on a different level.

Can Michigan Handle Georgia’s Front?

Outside of Andrew Steuber, who is headed to Mobile for the Senior Bowl, the Michigan offensive line isn’t on the 2022 NFL Draft radar. They’ll deal with a few prospects who should be drafted on the first two days.

Jordan Davis is the obvious one, as he is a fabulous run defender who frees up linebackers to make plays. His motor is hot and his power is evident on tape. Devonte Wyatt is the better rusher who attacks gaps with good quickness off the snap and good moves and hand placement. Travon Walker is a versatile rusher who can align anywhere, and Nolan Smith has an impressive blend of bend and power.
