Bottom line: Michigan has the most all-time wins in college football history, produced perhaps the greatest quarterback in NFL history (Tom Brady) and even had a future president play for them (Gerald Ford).
But Michigan also has struggled when it comes to skill position players in the NFL. Its highest touchdown scorer, Elroy Hirsch, found the end zone just 66 times. While that number seems impressive, it’s the second-lowest number on this list and ranks just 75th in terms of all college football programs.
There have been 138 players in NFL history to rush for 5,000 yards in a career, but none of them have donned the maize and blue. However, 13 Wolverines have reached 1,000 NFL rushing yards with the latest being the greatest, Tom Brady.
