Player Overview

Originally recruited by Jim Harbaugh out of high school, Lyons spent the past four years at Stanford before deciding to rejoin Harbaugh at Michigan for his final season of eligibility. As a graduate transfer, he won't need to sit out a season and adds an instant boost to the Wolverines secondary that lost starter Blake Countess to transfer.

Lyons started 22 games for the Cardinal.

Strengths Weaknesses

Fits the press-man style that Michigan will ask of its cornerbacks with a highly aggressive and confident demeanor on the field. He does a great job leveraging the field and is physical downhill vs. the run. Lyons has the size and length to match up with receivers on the line of scrimmage and make them uneasy off the snap.

WEAKNESSES: Needs to improve his break down skills to complete open field stops. Isn't as effective when asked to play off coverage,
