The active 53-man rosters are now officially set across the NFL as the league prepares to kick off its 2020 season this week. There are 33 former Michigan Wolverines that survived the post-training camp roster cuts as we head into the regular season.

Michigan currently is projected to have 10 starters in the NFL this weekend perennially headlined by quarterback Tom Brady, who makes his Tampa Bay Buccaneers debut after spending the first two decades of his career with the New England Patriots. The Wolverines-to-Patriots pipeline is far from done, however, as three-recent Michigan standouts cracked the two-deep heading into opening weekend.

Former Wolverines are on the rosters of 20 NFL teams as 2020 kicks off and we have compiled them all here with their projected roles on the depth chart.
