2016 NFL Draft results by college: Ohio State dominates, but which conference wins?

New, comments

Yeah, it's the SEC again.

Coming into the 2016 NFL Draft, there was no doubt that Ohio State would run the weekend.

And, yep, NFL teams confirmed this as Ohio State's draft class.

The Buckeyes didn't break the all-time record for the most picks (14, set by ... Ohio State in 2004), but they did do some other cool stuff along the way:

And two different ways of looking at the conference standings.

The raw numbers and the average per school, since conferences have varying numbers of teams. I've also decided to treat all non-FBS levels and countries as big groups. Any objections to this decision may be forwarded to my publicist, who does not exist.

SEC 51 3.64
Big Ten 47 3.36
Pac-12 32 2.67
ACC 26 1.93
Big 12 26 2.6
FCS 21 0.17
American 10 0.83
Conference USA 10 0.77
Mountain West 9 0.75
Independent 8 Yep
MAC 6 0.46
Sun Belt 3 0.27
Division II 2 0.01
Canada 1 Sure
Germany 1 Yeah
