1/15/22: In 2021, Hutchinson had 62 tackles, 14 sacks, three passes batted, a fumble recovered and two forced fumbles - another one was mistakenly given to a teammate. He was a steady pass rusher and a big presence for the Wolverines defense. Even with extra attention, Hutchinson was a consistent force to get after the quarterback, and Hutchinson helped teammate David Ojabo have a breakout season across from him.
Here's how a team's director of player personnel summarized Hutchinson, "I think he's a good athlete with speed and a pretty good get-off. I'm concerned with strength. He really doesn't want that smoke as a run defender. He wants to with suddenness and athletic ability as a run defender, moving and slanting. Hutchinson has issues holding up at point of attack. He's sufficient vs. the run because he can find it and can win with quicks and athletic ability. But when they run right at him, it's alarming."
7/10/21: Hutchinson was excellent to open 2020, collecting 13 tackles and a pass batted before going down with an ankle fracture that required surgery. He broke out as a sophomore for the Wolverines as a tough defender who flashed pass-rush ability. In 2019, he had 68 tackles with 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
Hutchinson has good size for the next level in that he could be a base end in a 4-3 or a 3-4 five-technique defensive end. Improving his pass-rush production would help Hutchinson, but he is a phenomenal run defender who flashes an ability to get to the quarterback. He is quick at the point of attack and causes a lot of disruption behind the line of scrimmage.
