The list: Colleges most represented by Redskins

There are many ways to list players like by last name and uniform number. We wanted to look for other ways, like schools.

Anybody who's ever followed the NFL Draft or free agency knows the importance placed on intangibles, including height and bulk. However, non-physical traits are taken into account as well by scouts. As a result, Breaking Burgundy takes a look a which schools produced the most Redskins.

When you think about college football, the SEC probably stands out as one of the best conferences in America and as a result would produce the most NFL prospects. That is part of the case as we examine the alma mater's of those who know sport the Burgundy and Gold. Let's take a look at the colleges and universities most represented by members of the Washington Redskins.

Five Redskins

Three Redskins

Two Redskins

Clearly the Steve Spurrier didn't leave any residual stink on the Gators. Reed and Jones are starters, while Dunbar will likely play the majority of defensive snaps. Brown is competing for a roster spot as the third running back, while Showers could be a practice squad signee.

Out of the 17 schools that are represented by more than one current Redskins player, five are out of the ACC, four from the SEC, two representing each the Pac-12, Big 12, and AAC, while just one each from the Big Ten and Mountain West conferences. Kyshoen Jarrett's injury dropped Virginia Tech into the two-alumni range. Daniels was waived following his season-ending injury, but cleared waivers and was added to the reserve/injured list.
