Previously, I ranked the Michigan quarterbacks (LINK) and running backs (LINK) from the beginning of the Lloyd Carr era onward. That corresponds with the time that I have paid close attention to Michigan football.
Now we will take a look at the receivers. Because I don’t have an endless amount of time, I have to trim this down to guys who started at least twelve games in a Michigan uniform, which represents roughly one full season as a starter. The lone exception here is Devin Gardner, who started a bunch of games, but mostly at quarterback.

Everyone’s favorite Michigan wide receiver to hate is releasing an autobiography. You can pre-order it on Amazon (LINK):
??Excited to announce my autobiography, Braylon Edwards: Doing It My Way, is out for pre-order and will officially be released in September. This book was my opportunity to tell my story; uncut, unfiltered and no holding back.

It was a strong week for our former Michigan athletes, but no one had a more eye-popping performance than Philadelphia Eagle Jason Avant. His team won 23-21 over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he finished with seven receptions for 133 yards, including one of the most impressive one-handed grabs you’ll ever see. Avant has 38 receptions for 495 yards through 13 games, and his play looks to be improving alongside that of QB Nick Foles. Teammate Brandon Graham had two tackles in the win.
Honorable mention: Stevie Brown picked off Drew Brees twice as his Giants routed the Saints; he returned the two interceptions a total of 91 yards. Brown is now second in the NFL with seven interceptions and is also the Giants’ new single-season record holder for most interception return yards with 259. In addition to the picks, Brown had eight tackles, 2 pass breakups, and a forced fumble in the game.
