A few things surprised me. First of all, I thought Florida State would have the most players in the league. I have always assumed that the top three would be FSU, Florida and Miami but I didn't think Florida would have the most of the three, even though it can not get any closer.
What amazed me even more was Notre Dame. Here is a team that has not produced a first round pick since 1999 and has one in the last five drafts. Lets face it, Notre Dame in the last few seasons as not been the typical Notre Dame. Despite the hard times for the Irish, they are still producing NFL talent.
It is no surprise that Tennessee, Ohio State and Michigan are near the top of the list, especially the Vols. Does Georgia surprise some folks? I know one thing, they have had some outstanding recruiting classes over the years.
Inside the numbers is a segment I hope to bring to the site each week. Lets talk about it on the Message Boards.
