Michigan Wolverines: Toney Clemons

Catching Up With ... is an occasional series at WolverineNation where we chat with former Michigan football and basketball players to find out what they have been up to since they left the Wolverines.

Steve Breaston made a college and NFL career out of being multifaceted. While he plays receiver -- and is a good one -- Breaston is mostly known for his ability as a returner. While at Michigan, Breaston had 127 punt returns for 1,599 yards and four touchdowns along with 81 kick returns for 1,993 yards -- all school records.

When he wasn't returning kicks and punts, Breaston still caught 156 passes (fifth all-time) for 1,696 yards and 10 touchdowns. He left Michigan in 2007 and was selected in the fifth round by the Arizona Cardinals, where he spent four seasons before heading to Kansas City prior to the 2011 season. This season, he'll have a familiar face near him as the Chiefs drafted Junior Hemingway in the seventh round in April.
The three-day NFL Draft came and went over the weekend with few surprises for Michigan players. Three players -- Mike Martin, David Molk and Junior Hemingway -- were drafted.

Many more were not.

The three players drafted equaled the 2010 NFL Draft, which had Brandon Graham go in the first round, Zoltan Mesko in the fifth round and Stevie Brown in the seventh.

In this year’s draft, Martin went to Tennessee in the third round, while Molk and Hemingway were selected in the seventh round by San Diego and Kansas City, respectively.

Hemingway, the last Michigan player taken, joins Steve Breaston as a wide receiver in Kansas City.

Woolfolk to All-Star Game

Just when you thought All-Star games were over -- here comes another one.

Former Michigan defensive back Troy Woolfolk will be playing in the Players All-Star Classic in Little Rock, Ark. on Saturday.

Woolfolk began the season as one of Michigan's starting cornerbacks but was eventually moved to safety, where he split time with Thomas Gordon.

Joining him in Arkansas, according to the game's Website, is former Michigan receiver Toney Clemons, who transferred to Colorado. Woolfolk is on the North team and Clemons is on the South, so they could be matched up against one another.
