Tom Brady (12)
Brady started his Michigan career seventh on the depth chart, well behind starter Brian Griese. He eventually beat out two-sport star Drew Henson for the starting job at the outset of his junior year.
During the 1998 and 1999 seasons, Brady split with Ohio State and won both bowl games.
As a senior, Brady set the Michigan record for most completions in a game. The record, which still stands, was set in the 2000 Orange Bowl, where the Wolverines topped Alabama, 35-34, in overtime.
Brady completed 34-of-46 passes for 369 yards and four touchdowns.
Because he didn't hold Michigan's starting job for three or four consecutive years, he was only selected in Round 6 of the 2000 NFL draft.
He may have been the 199th player taken, but Brady has never looked back once he grabbed the Patriots' starting job.
His NFL career has been stunning. He's been named the Super Bowl MVP twice and has been a Pro Bowl selection seven times.
He'll also be known for three Super Bowl rings and the "tuck" rule and is one of four NFL quarterbacks to throw for over 5,000 yards in a single season. Dan Marino, Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford are the others.
