Who has stats on all-time draft selections? Is LSU about to break the 300 mark?



I just did a quick count of LSU players drafted into the NFL ( LINK), and I came up with about 291, hopefully not double-counting players like Y.A. Tittle, Rip Collins, and Red Knight, that were drafted in multiple years.

Does anybody have an official list to see where LSU stacks up among other CFB programs?

The only all-time list that ranked schools I could find was this one from August 2010, which did not include the last two drafts in 2011 or 2012.

#1. SCAL (468)
#2. Notre Dame (466)
#3. Ohio State (394)
#4. Oklahoma (346)
#5. Michigan (335)
#6. Nebraska (334)
#7. Tennessee (327)
#8. Penn State (323)
#9. Texas (322)
#10. Miami-FL (299)

It's weird some of the schools that have had huge draft classes, and some of those that haven't. I know a lot of that has to do with changes in draft format and how many rounds are completed and all that, but it's still interesting.

Some big ones I've come across...

18 - Texas (1984)
16 - Notre Dame (1946)
15 - Southern Cal (1953); Notre Dame (1945)
14 - Ohio State (2004); Southern Cal (1977 & 1975)
13 - Oklahoma (1988); Penn State (1987); Ohio State (1975 & 1971); Minnesota (1950); Notre Dame (1950)
12 - Miami-FL (1988); Texas (1982 & 1944); Pittsburgh (1981); Nebraska (1975); Notre Dame (1954); Maryland (1952); Southern Cal (1944)
11 - Southern Cal (2009, 2006, 1983, & 1968); Oklahoma (2005 & 1973); Miami-FL (2002 & 1991); Ohio State (1976 & 1957); Nebraska (1976); Maryland (1971); Notre Dame (1969 & 1959); Michigan State (1958); Texas (1952, 1948, & 1947); Minnesota (1944)

Other schools that have had 10 players drafted in one year...

Tennessee (2002); Florida (1992 & 1978); Auburn (1989); Michigan (1974 & 1972); Alabama (1945).
(That makes 17 schools that I know of.)

Schools that have never had a 10-player draft class...

Florida State (had 9 in 2005, 2001, 1998, & 1995)
Tulane (had 9 in 1951)
LSU (had 8 in 1990 & 1948)
Georgia (had 8 in 2002)
Army (had 6 in 1947)

Bump for we_geaux_harder.

The correct answer is the University of Texas in the Spring 1984 draft.
