Football freep.com —  Michigan State cornerback Vayante Copeland is beginning to play without fear again. Feeling like his old self. Pre-broken neck. Not many people in this world know what it’s like to return to the football field after that sort of injury — to again put one’s head and neck in harm's way, to slam into the moving thigh of a running back or launch one’s body into a violent collision without control of the outcome.

Football isportsweb.com —  Michigan State football has been known for having a strong defense that can be relied upon to win games. Think back to 2013 where in the first two games of the season, the defense had more touchdowns than the offense. Fast forward to 2016 and the Michigan State defense should be strong again. The spring depth chart lists five seniors as starters on the defense, but by the time fall rolls around that number could bump up to six. Ed Davis is expected to get a sixth year of eligibility after suffering a torn ACL before the start of last season.

Football espn.go.com —  Michigan State defensive end Evan Jones has patiently waited, and now in his final year with the Spartans he has an opportunity to seize. Jones’ time in East Lansing has followed the path that head coach Mark Dantonio and his staff prefer to prescribe: take a redshirt year, experiment at a couple of positions, work your way onto the field on special teams and in a backup role and then be ready to take over a starting spot as a senior. Jones has ticked off all of those boxes on his way to the top of the depth chart on the team’s new-look defensive line this spring.

Football detroitnews.com —  While the uncertainty behind O’Connor can make Saturday’s 3 p.m. kickoff intriguing for the likes of Terry and Lewerke, there seems little doubt O’Connor is taking a stronger hold of the starting position as each day passes. Only part of that is because of the way he is playing, which has been very good by all accounts. But it’s the way O’Connor has taken easily to his role as a team leader.

Football freep.com —  Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio expects linebacker Ed Davis to be granted a sixth year of eligibility and return to the field this fall. Jon Reschke became a reliable strongside playmaker while flanking middle linebacker Riley Bullough. Andrew Dowell saw action as a true freshman, but rising junior Chris Frey has leapfrogged him on the depth chart this spring and is getting first-team reps at the weakside spot in the battle to replace the graduation loss of Darien Harris. He’ll return to a crowded group of linebackers that have become the Spartans’ deepest position group.

Football btn.com —  Michigan State has been one of the Big Ten’s top programs in recent years, winning 11 or more games five times in the last six seasons. But the NFL draft doesn’t reflect that success. Instead, it reinforces the notion that Mark Dantonio and his staff have few peers when it comes to developing talent to fit their system.
