Devin Bush, OLB – Michigan
Eric Kendricks just a massive extension this offseason and Ben Gedeon has been playing well when not taken off the field for nickel defense packages. However, being able to afford to bring Anthony Barr back might not be possible.
That means Minnesota will need another starting outside linebacker. Eric Wilson has shown flashes of being a solid player, but otherwise, there isn’t a lot to be excited about long-term on the team’s roster.
Bush has been one of the best parts of a solid Michigan defense. He’s able to rush the passer, be a solid tackler, and even drop back in coverage well. So far, he has racked up 155 tackles in 30 games played, including 17 for a loss and nine and a half sacks. Add in nine defended passes and one interception, and you have a well-rounded player that doesn’t get as much attention as he should.
