Even though Braylon Edwards broke a lot of his records in 2004, wide receiver and kick returner Desmond Howard set numerous NCAA and Michigan records and became Michigan's second Heisman Trophy winner (with a record 85 percent of the first place voting) while also winning the Maxwell Award, Walter Camp Award and First Team All-America honors. In his last season at Michigan, Howard scored 22 touchdowns: 19 receiving, two rushing and one off a kick return to lead the Big Ten in scoring (138). Selected fourth overall in the 1992 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, Howard went on to have an 11-year career and won the Super Bowl XXXI MVP as a member of the Green Bay Packers.
