Michigan – Kirk Cousins
Cousins is one of the NFL’s most polarizing quarterbacks and arguably Michigan’s best athlete. Some people think that he’s one of the most overrated players in the league. But others believe it’s not his fault. He’s one of the longest-serving signal-callers in the NFL today.
The four-time Pro Bowler began life as Robert Griffin’s backup but emerged as a bonafide starter. After he had a contract disagreement with Washington, he joined the Vikings on a massive deal. The Barrington native is also a philanthropist (via Holland Sentinel).
