James Hall -- Defensive End (1996-99)
Hall had a charmed career at the University of Michigan, winning a national championship as a sophomore in 1997 and going on to record the second-most sacks in U-M program history (only recently passed by defensive end Brandon Graham). Hall was an All-Big Ten honoree as a junior, recording a career-best 11 sacks, but his senior season brought the most recognition -- third-team All-America honors and semifinalist consideration for the Butkus Award. Hall went undrafted and signed with the Detroit Lions, where he played for seven seasons before joining his current team, the St. Louis Rams.
Brandon Graham -- Defensive End (2006-09)
Graham led the nation in tackles for loss during his senior season on his way to being named Big Ten Co-MVP and earning All-America recognition from multiple publications. During his distinguished four-year career, Graham amassed 138 tackles (including 56 tackles for loss), 29.5 sacks (second in school history), three fumble recoveries and three pass break-ups. Graham was drafted in the first round (13th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, the highest Big Ten player drafted that year.
Glen Steele -- Defensive End (1994-97)
Steele was the star defensive end on Michigan's 1997 national championship team, earning first team All-Big Ten and All-America honors. He ended his career with 45 tackles for loss and 24 sacks, both good enough to be top-10 marks on Michigan's all-time lists for both categories. Steele played six seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, who drafted him in the fourth round (105th overall) of the 1998 NFL Draft.
LaMarr Woodley -- Defensive End/Linebacker (2003-06)
Woodley wreaked havoc on opposing quarterbacks from 2003-06, winning the Ted Hendricks (given annually to the nation's top defensive end) and the Lombardi Award (given to the nation's best lineman, offense or defense) as a senior in 2006. That year, he was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and was a first team All-American. He ended his Michigan career with 52.5 tackles for loss (second in school history) and 24 sacks. Woodley was drafted in the second round (46th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers and helped lead the Steelers to the Super Bowl XLIII crown.
Chris Hutchinson -- Defensive Tackle (1989-92)
Hutchinson started 38 games for the Wolverines, tying a then-single-season record with 11 sacks as a senior in 1992. It was that senior campaign that cemented Hutchinson as a sack master with the Wolverine captain earning Big Ten Lineman of the Year and NCAA All-America recognition. Hutchinson also excelled off the field as a three-time Academic All-Big Ten scholar and a recipient of the NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship.
Jason Horn -- Defensive Tackle (1992-95)
Horn played defensive tackle in 48 games for the Wolverines, finishing his career tied for second in career sacks with 24. He had a career-best 11 sacks in his senior season in 1995, tying for the second-most sacks in U-M history. Horn earned All-America honors as a senior and was a two-time All-Big Ten first team performer.
