Every year, it seems like there is a bit of a discussion regarding which college produces the most players in the NFL. Of course, you would expect the more elite programs in the country to breed players for the next level.
This year was no different. NCAA.com recently ranked every school in their database – from the FBS to Division III – on how many players each school had playing on Sundays.
The LSU Tigers topped the list with 38 players.
The top ten consisted of four SEC teams, three ACC teams, as well as USC, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame.
In a further breakdown of the list, if you want to be a quarterback in the NFL, it’s best if you go to either Oregon State, Michigan State, Virginia Tech or USC. All four of those schools are tied for the most NFL quarterbacks with three on rosters each.
The argument of “DBU” can finally be resolved, as LSU also holds the top spot for most defensive backs in the league with nine. They also have ten defensive lineman in the league. Basically, if you play defense and want to go to the NFL, go to LSU.
Unless, of course, you’re a linebacker.
USC and Texas are and always have been known as “Linebacker U” as they both currently have seven on NFL rosters.
Another interesting note is that if you go to Florida State, you will probably end up with the Buffalo Bills at some point. There are seven former Seminoles on Buffalo’s roster.
