Derrick Alexander

Wide Receiver, 1992

One of the most prolific receivers in Michigan history. The 6-3, 190 pound Detroit native became the eighth Wolverine to amass over 1,500 career receiving yards and is one of only nine players to catch over 100 passes. Alexander ranks as one of six Wolverines to have over 1,000 career return yards. His is one of just two players in school history with four punt returns for touchdowns and was the first Wolverine to return punts for tds in consecutive games. Alexander is one of 15 Michigan players and one of only five Wolverine receivers to amass over 3,000 career all-purpose yards. The two-time first-team All-Big Ten honoree had one of the best single game performances for an "M" receiver in 1993 against Illinois. He caught seven passes for 188 yards (second highest yardage in school history) and two touchdowns, including a 90 yarder, the longest reception in Michigan's storied football history. Alexander was picked in the first round of the 1994 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns.
