Recruiting Rankings for Every Wolverine in the NFL

With the first preseason game ready to kick off tonight, we thought we\’d take a look at the Wolverines in the NFL and where they were as high school recruits.

  • 39 former Wolverines in the NFL (32 ranked; star ranking systems came out around 2002)
  • 3.88* average rating
  • 26 of the 39 players were drafted
  • Between 2000-2009, every draft class besides 2001 has at least one member in the NFL today.
  • By class, 2009 has the most NFL players (10)
  • Jay Feely (class of 1994) is the oldest Wolverine in the NFL
  • The 1995 class had Tom Brady and Charles Woodson in it. That\’s just incredible.
