AnnArbor.com: Six risers and fallers from spring practice
Kyle Meinke discusses the guys who raised or lowered their stock during the spring. I disagree with listing Elliott Mealer as a "faller," though. As I mentioned before, I think it's quite possible that Mealer was the second string right tackle (instead of the starting left guard) for practical purposes. If Mealer had started the game at left guard, Burzynski would have been relegated to the third team while two less talented walk-ons (Kristian Mateus and Erik Gunderson) played tackle on the second unit. That seems like a poor deployment of personnel.
