  • Charles Woodson will also be inducted into Michigan's Hall of Honor this spring

After a dominant career at the University of MI that saw him become the first primarily defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy, Woodson was selected fourth overall in the 1998 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.

Former University of Georgia All-America offensive tackle Matt Stinchcomb has been elected to the 2018 College Football Hall of Fame Class.

Woodson recorded 18 interceptions during his three-year stint at MI, and was drafted fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders during the 1998 NFL Draft.

He will be officially inducted on December 4, 2018, at the annual NFF awards dinner at the Hilton Midtown Hotel in New York City. They also will be honored at their respective schools at an NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute, presented by Fidelity Investments, during the 2018 season.

The 2018 inductees were announced Monday by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. Taylor was a Huskers center and left guard from 1994-'97.

The inductees will be permanently enshrined at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta later that December and honored on the field during the 14th Annual National Hall of Fame Salute during the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

Texas' Mack Brown and Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer were among the notable honorees.
