No. 5: Charles Woodson - Michigan, Defensive Back/Wide Receiver, 1995-1997

To end this all-star list, we have Woodson. Woodson played three seasons with the Wolverines where he played as a defensive back his freshman season before adding the wide receiver position to his arsenal the next two. As a defensive back, Woodson snagged five interceptions in 1995, four in 1996 and seven in 1997.

As a receiver, Woodson caught one touchdown pass in 1996 and two in 1997. In 1997, Woodson won the Heisman Trophy. He was drafted to the Oakland Raiders fourth overall in the 1997 NFL Draft. His career stretched 18 seasons with his best coming in 2009 when he grabbed a league high nine interceptions. He also forced four fumbles that year.

Whether Ewers, Hunter or Edwards will have positive careers like most of the guys above is unknown, however, we do know that highlighting the NCAA 25 game as the cover athletes is an accomplishment that cannot be snagged away from them, ever.
