Michigan Football: Impact on NFL

Sean SaintContributor IMay 15, 2010

When thinking of the greatest current NFL football players, many come to mind, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, and so on. Throughout history, Michigan has been a powerhouse in great NFL football players. Regarded one of the most clutch performers, with 3 Super Bowl Rings, Tom Brady.

While Tom Brady is a Michigan Man, one example of their great success is not enough...

Case #2: Charles Woodson. Regarded highly in college and eventually winning the Heisman Trophy, Charles Woodson came on the the NFL scene strong in 1998. He was always a great player, and twelve years later, he has improved...

Last year Woodson had the most ints, tackles, forced fumbles, touchdowns, and he was also the Defensive MVP ***YAWN***

Case #3: The newest player to find great success is Jake Long, after superb Junior and Senior years for Michigan, Long found himself to be the number 1 Draft Pick in 2008. This 6'7 foot Goliath quickly became a Pro Bowler and was selected a starting OT in the Pro Bowl. He is currently playing with his fellow QB at Michigan, Chad Henne, and has one of the brightest futures.
