Ten Year NFL Draft Case Study: Big Ten

SUCCESS/BUST RATE

Below, not only do we see how many total players were drafted from each school, but also how many players were out of the league by the 2011 season. If a player even participated in training camp in 2011, he was counted as being in the league.

For each team, the first number you see is players out of the league by 2011, then the total number of players drafted. Under, I broke down the players out of the league by round drafted.

In total, there are 110 players drafted from the B1G no longer in the league. 110/339 players drafted gives a 32.4% percent no longer in the league.

It’s not the best way to determine a “bust” rate, because we’re looking at a nine season span here, but it does tell which schools/conferences have the most long standing players.  We’ll see how other conferences stack up over the next few weeks.

Ohio State produced the most prospects by far, but Iowa and Wisconsin have been catching up lately.
