#61. Michigan linebacker Jonas Mouton was drafted by the San Diego Chargers. Mouton was the first Michigan player chosen by the Chargers since offensive guard Joe Cocozzo in 1993, who was selected in the third round (#63 overall).
#74. Arkansas quarterback (and former Wolverine) Ryan Mallett was drafted by the New England Patriots. He has first round talent but an undrafted free agent level of maturity, so he probably couldn’t have asked for a better situation. Sure, I bet he would have loved first round money, but now he gets to sit behind and learn from Tom Brady for a few years. If he learns well, he could become a franchise quarterback when Brady moves on or retires.
#201. Michigan offensive lineman Steve Schilling was drafted by the San Diego Chargers. This is the first time multiple Michigan players have been chosen by one team since . . . 2008, when the Miami Dolphins picked offensive tackle Jake Long in the first round and quarterback Chad Henne in the second.

|Tom Brady had a great season in 2010|
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had a superb season in 2010, and I think he’s reached a point where the media kind of ignore his statistical awesomeness. Brady finished the season 324-for-492 (65.9%) with 3,900 yards, 36 touchdowns, and only 4 interceptions. His quarterback rating of 111.0 is the fifth-highest rating of all time, behind the likes of Peyton Manning, Steve Young, Joe Montana . . . and the 2007 version of himself. It was so good, in fact, that he’s the first player to win the NFL MVP by a unanimous vote.
Runner-up: Charles Woodson, the Green Bay Packers cornerback, finished the regular season with 92 tackles, 5 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions (1 returned for a touchdown), 13 passes broken up, and 2 sacks. And his Packers just beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl, 31-25.
Second runner-up: Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley ended his regular season with 50 tackles, 10 sacks, 2 interceptions (1 returned for a touchdown), 5 passes broken up, 3 fumbles forced, and 2 fumbles recovered. His Steelers lost to the Packers in the Super Bowl, 25-31.
