Ten Year NFL Draft Case Study: MAC

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 25 players drafted from the MAC no longer in the league. 25/76 players drafted gives a 32.9% 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.

The MAC really doesn’t have one dominant program as far as producing NFL talent. Central Michigan, Miami and Western Michigan all produced the most over the last ten years, though Temple had a very nice stretch as well.

Central Michigan: 4/7 – 57.1%

The MAC has produced some very good players based on their total All Pro/Pro Bowl appearances. 2004 produced Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Turner and Jason Babin alone.

Total MAC All Pro/Pro Bowl appearances: 23
