The NFL Draft isn’t just an NFL event. It’s a football event! College teams and coaches go out of their way to brag about how many pros they’re producing, all in the name of recruiting future potential pros. Fans use it as a measuring stick in all sorts of arguments.

With that in mind, here’s how I have the 2018 NFL Draft’s raw college results (or, if you’re looking for full player-by-player picks, those are over here). We’ll have some cooler versions of these numbers to follow later.

  • 12: Alabama
  • 7: LSU, NC State, Ohio State
  • 6: Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Penn State
  • 5: Florida, UCLA, Virginia Tech, Washington, Wisconsin
  • 4: Auburn, Louisville, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Stanford, Texas, UCF, USC
  • 3: Arizona State, Boston College, Clemson, Iowa, North Carolina, Pitt, SMU, Southern Miss, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M
  • 2: Arkansas, Boise State, Cal, Indiana, Maryland, Memphis, Michigan, Oregon, Rutgers, San Diego State, Temple, Texas Tech, Tulane, UL Lafayette, USF, Virginia, Washington State, Western Kentucky, Western Michigan
  • 1: Appalachian State, Arizona, Australia! (not a college, but that’s fine), BYU, Central Arkansas, Central Michigan, Colorado, Colorado State, Delaware, Ferris State, FIU, Fordham, Fort Hays State, Houston, Humboldt State, Illinois State, Jacksonville State, Kansas, Kansas State, Louisiana Tech, Maine, Michigan State, Middle Tennessee, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New Mexico State, North Carolina A&T, Northern Iowa, Northwestern, Ohio, Penn, Purdue, Richmond, Sam Houston State, San Jose State, South Carolina State, Southeast Missouri State, South Carolina, South Dakota State, Stephen F. Austin, Syracuse, Toledo, UConn, Utah, UTEP, UTSA, Vanderbilt, Virginia State, Weber State, West Virginia, Western Carolina, Wyoming, Yale

Oklahoma took early honors, with QB Baker Mayfield going No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns, but the SEC won Thursday, with seven first-rounders from the Alabama-Georgia national title game alone. Bama ended up breaking its own SEC record for total picks, and the SEC took overall conference honors at the end, with 53.

In 2017, Michigan led the way in total picks, though Alabama produced more actual draft value, once you account for how highly the Tide’s players went off the board. Sunday, we’ll give this year’s class that same analysis.
