B1G Player Rankings: No. 2, Taylor Lewan

And then there were two. With two days left before Indiana (Indiana State) and Minnesota (UNLV) kick things off for the Big Ten on Thursday on BTN/BTN2Go, our countdown of the top 25 players has reached No. 2: Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan. Read about Lewan and check out the entire countdown in this post.

No. 2: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

Lewan could be a rich man and in the NFL right now. The incredibly gifted offensive lineman stunned many when he announced he would return to Michigan for his senior season. Hey, the gamble paid off for Michigan product Jake Long, who turned down the NFL after his junior season and went on to become the No. 1 pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. Clearly, the NFL’s loss is Michigan’s gain. And no one gains more from Lewan’s return than quarterback Devin Gardner, who can relax in the pocket knowing the massive and dominant 6-8, 309-pounder has his blind side covered.
