Take a look at the Toontrack products. In particular Superior Drummer 2.0 may be of interest:
As Michael Hansen Buur said, there are lots of good live-feel drum products out there: Toontrack, Steven Slate Drums, Native Instruments Kontakt, etc...
But it is also equally important to program the drums with a natural vibe to them, i.e. humanizing notes, accenting notes (important notes have more velocity and there could be "ghost" notes with super small velocities). For example, the "digital" drum sound is coming from having robotic performance, all notes with full velocity, on the grid exactly, sounding completely the same. (That's why I hate to listen to "Walk this way" by Run DMC - just listen to the totally even hihats - if you have a drummer playing that lifelessly, you fire them from a band).
You can use and edit pre-recorded MIDI files, those are usually the best, and you can learn a lot from them. Toontrack for sure has this as MIDI packs.
Also Misha Mansoor has a detailed tutorial about making your own drums from scratch:
