Poll: What school will have the most players picked in 2011 NFL Draft?

New, comments

Having the most players drafted is something college football teams can use to greatly help recruiting.

Last season, the Florida Gators had the most players selected in the NFL Draft with nine. It's highly unlikely the Gators will have that many players drafted this year.

It looks like the frontrunner to have the most players is Auburn. A strong case could also be made for Southern California. In addition, Alabama, Clemson, Iowa, Miami, North Carolina, South Carolina, Stanford and TCU should also finish near the top in most players drafted.

But who do you think will have the most picked? Place a vote and after the jump, see a quick list of who I think will should drafted from each of the teams mentioned.

Of course, I'm sure there will be some players from these schools that weren't included. It's also possible some of these guys won't even be drafted. But right now, I expect them to.

Alabama
Mark Ingram, Marcell Dareus, Julio Jones, Preston Dial, Greg McElroy, James Carpenter, Luther Davis

Auburn
Darvin Adams, Mike Blanc, Wes Byrum, Josh Bynes, Zac Etheridge, Nick Fairley, Mario Fannin, Cam Newton, Ryan Pugh, Lee Ziemba
