BY AUSTIN FOX Former Wolverines In The NFL Name Pos. Years In NFL Current Team Ben Braden OG 2 New York Jets Made just two appearances as a reserve lineman for the 4-12 Jets. Tom Brady QB 19 New England Patriots Completed 65.8 percent of his attempts for 4,355 yards with 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 16 regular-season starts, and added two rushing scores. He ranked in the NFL's top 10 for passing yardage (seventh) and scoring tosses (10th). In three postseason contests, he connected on 68.0 percent of his throws for 953 yards with two scores and three picks. He became the first player to win six Super Bowls by leading the Patriots to a 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in the big game. Devin Bush LB R Pittsburgh Steelers Selected 10th overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2019 NFL Draft, becoming the highest Michigan player to come off the board since offensive tackle Jake Long went No. 1 overall to the Miami Dolphins in 2008. Jake Butt TE 2 Denver Broncos Tore his ACL in practice Sept. 25 and missed the rest of the season. Prior to his injury, he started the first three clashes for 6-10 Denver and accumulated eight catches for 85 yards. Taco Charlton DE 2 Dallas Cowboys Started seven of the 11 regular-season contests he played in (missed three with a shoulder injury and was a healthy scratch for two others) for the 10-6 and NFC East champion Cowboys, and compiled 27 tackles, one sack and one pass defended. He also competed in both of Dallas' playoff games — a 24-22 victory over Seattle and a 30-22 loss to the Rams — but did not log any stats. Jehu Chesson WR 2 Washington Redskins Appeared in 12 games (no starts) for the 7-9 Redskins, rushed once for a four-yard loss and reeled in one catch for seven yards. Frank Clark DE 4 Kansas City Chiefs Started all 16 regular-season contests for the 10-6 Seahawks, notching 41 tackles, 13 sacks, two passes defended, an interception he returned 26 yards and three forced fumbles. His 13 quarterback takedowns were tied for the eighth most in the NFL, while his three forced fumbles tied for 11th. He also posted four stops and a sack in Seattle's 24-22 playoff setback to the Cowboys. Jeremy Clark CB 2 New York Jets Saw action just once (no stats) and was only on the 4-12 Jets' active roster for five games.
