Wolverines in the NFL

Brandon Aiyuk, WR

  • San Francisco 49ers (2020–Present)

49ers Select Brandon Aiyuk with the No. 25 Pick in the 2020 NFL Draft

- With the 25th-overall pick, the San Francisco 49ers selected wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk from Arizona State. The 6-foot, 205-pound receiver garnered third-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-Pac-12 honors in 2019 after leading the Sun Devils with 65 receptions for 1,192 yards and eight scores. He was also one of the top two-duty returners in the country taking 14 punt returns for 226 yards (16.1 average) and one score, and 14 kick returns for 446 yards (31.9 average). Retrieved 7/17/2020 from

Devante Bond, LB

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2016–2018)
  • Chicago Bears (2019-2021)
It took Bond's career a while to get going, but the flashes he showed while playing in Norman gave NFL scouts something to think about. He didn't start playing football until his senior year of high school, and then went to Sierra Community College for two years where he was the conference Defensive MVP with 27 tackles for losses, 17 sacks in just 11 games.
