ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Who do Michigan's departing seniors believe will break out next season? Who impressed them the most among the redshirts? Would they do all of this again?

These questions and more are part of what is answered in Part I of the WolverineNation anonymous survey of 19 of the players on Michigan's football team who finished their eligibility in 2012. The seniors were granted anonymity for the survey so they could be as honest as possible about their time at Michigan and what they saw from those who will follow them.

This survey was taken with the 19 seniors who responded to our queries from January through March, before and during Jerry Montgomery's departure for Oklahoma and before the ACL injury to Jake Ryan.
