Turn on an NFL game and, chances are, you’ll see a former Wolverine. There are 32 former Michigan players playing in the NFL, four of whom played in Monday night’s game between the Seahawks and Vikings. There are an additional 17 people on coaching staffs that either played or coached at Michigan.
Here’s a look at where they all are, starting with the players, who are listed alphabetically. (Stats are through games played on Dec. 10.)
