Favorite players by jersey numbers

I'm sure this has been done before, but an Ohio fan and myself usually have some sort of random contest/test of fandom the week leading up to The Game every year. 

So #1-#10 who are your favorite Wolverines all-time?

I'll get us started #1-5, but I'm sure it will show my generation. Figured it could give us somthing to do throughout the night if we want to extend the list...

#1- Anthony Carter

#2- Charles Woodson

#3- Tripp Welborne

#4- Jimmy Harbaugh 

#5- Erik Campbell?

I lied, I'm going to 6...

#6- Tyrone Wheatley 

Hope this provides some entertainment while we drink tonight...

For 99.9% of Michigan fans, probably. Nothing against Denard, but John Navarre was the QB and my favorite player duing those influential childhood years that make a kid become a lifelong Michigan fan (8-11 years old for me). He may not be in the same class as Denard or some of the great QB's to play for Michigan, but he's still my favorite player.

... but he holds a number of Michigan passing records, won a Big Ten Championship and beat Ohio in his senior season. In terms of production, this isn't as much of a stretch as you're making it out to be.

Denard is one of the most exciting College Football players ever to lace (or not) up a pair of cleats, but show a little respect for the other #16.

Thanks. I completely understand why people aren't high on Navarre. An unknown QB taking over for a big time player like Drew Henson had to be the most frustrating thing ever. Add to that his lack of mobility, knockdowns at the line even though he's 6' 6'', and the tough losses during his career, and you have a very frustrated fanbase.

My friends still make fun of me to this day for saying Navarre is my all time favorite Michigan player. But man, as a 9 or 10 year old kid just getting into Michigan football as a serious fan and seeing Navarre throw that deep ball. It's something special that can never be matched.

I mean come on.... He's a fourth year starter, team captain, beloved by Michigan fans everywhere and mentioned on this board thousands of times... But yet people can't spell the mans name right. It's KOVACS!!!!!
