  1. 9,715 yards – Chad Henne (2004-2007)
  2. 9,254 yards – John Navarre (2000-2003)
  3. 6,460 yards – Elvis Grbac (1989-1992)
  4. 6,336 yards – Devin Gardner (2010-2014)
  5. 6,250 yards – Denard Robinson (2009-2012)
  6. 5,858 yards – Todd Collins (1991-1994)
  7. 5,449 yards – Jim Harbaugh (1983-1986)
  8. 5,351 yards – Tom Brady (1996-1999)
  9. 4,860 yards – Steve Smith (1980-1983)
  10. 4,383 yards – Brian Griese (1995-1997)
  11. 4,284 yards – Rick Leach (1982-1984)
  12. 3,192 yards – Wilton Speight (2015-2017)
  13. 3,017 yards – Jake Rudock (2015)
  14. 2,994 yards – John Wangler (1976-1980)
  15. 2,946 yards – Drew Henson (1998-2000)
  16. 2,920 yards – Scott Dreisbach (1995-1998)
  17. 2,647 yards – Tate Forcier (2009-2010)
  18. 2,600 yards – Shea Patterson (2018)
  19. 2,550 yards – Don Moorhead (1968-1970)
  20. 2,534 yards – Dennis Brown (1966-1968)
  21. 2,400 yards – Dick Widmer (1965-1967)
  22. 2,285 yards – Dennis Franklin (1972-1974)
  23. 2,194 yards – Michael Taylor (1987-1989)
  24. 2,026 yards – Demetrius Brown (1986-1988)
  25. 1,656 yards – Bob Timberlake (1962-1964)

It’s a sign of the modern passing era that two guys with just one season at Michigan (Jake Rudock and Shea Patterson) both made the top 18.

    Don’t forget, Tate Forcier only started in 2009. His significant snaps in 2010 were against Bowling Green (I believe 10 of 10), and Indiana (4Q & OT)
