Ten Year NFL Draft Case Study: ACC

SCHOOL BREAKDOWN

Here, I broke down each school tallying how many picks they had by round and by position. I also noted who their highest pick was in the last ten years and where that player was drafted overall.

It was interesting how many first round picks Boston College had vs. every other round. That shows that they may produce elite talent, but they’re not consistently getting players drafted into the NFL.

Clemson produces a ton of defensive linemen, but four out of twelve were out of the league in 2011 and none have ever made a pro bowl or all pro team.

  1. Prefectly Smart says:

    James, Nice work. As someone who has compiled similar data, I’m not sure everyone will appreciate the amount of effor that goes into such an undertaking.

    How did you treat players taken in the Supplemental draft? For example, Tony Hollings, RB from Georgia Tech, taken in the second round of the 2003 Supplemental draft by the Texans. Not that overlooking a few players is going to make any drastic shifts in the data, but in Holllings’ case it would erase the goose egg up on the board for GT in the 2003 draft.

  2. Patriots Draft Guru says:

    Patriots really haven’t had much luck from the ACC.

  3. John M says:

    How long will it take for Ochocincho jerseys to go on sale for $9.99 at Marshalls or TJ Max?
