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 6 players drafted from the Sun Belt no longer in the league. 6/39 players drafted gives a 15.4% 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.

Arkansas State: 1/7 = 14.3%
Louisiana-Lafayette: 0/6 = 0%
