Ten Year NFL Draft Case Study: MAC

Julian Edelman

This former MAC QB has been a versatile pick for the Patriots.

Every Friday for the next twelve weeks I’ll be doing a case study on the last ten years draft history of every conference in the FBS.

Through these case studies we’ll be able to answer which schools and conferences produce the most talent, the most busts, the most players at each position and much more.

There’s a lot of information to digest, but there’s some very interesting findings with each week of research which will become even more telling as project progresses.

This week, I’m taking on the MAC.


From the 2003 draft until the 2012 draft, there were 2552 total players drafted, the MAC made up 76 of those draft picks, for 3% of the total players drafted. It’s hard to put this in context now, but after I’m able to tally the totals for the remainder of the conferences, this will be more telling.

Total players drafted from the MAC/total players drafted from 2003-2012
Total 76/2552 – 3%

By year, I broke down the total number of players drafted, the total number of first round picks and the most picks by school.

I also listed the total number of players drafted from each school per year and the total number of players drafted at each position per year.
