These Schools Have Dominated The NFL Draft The Last 10 Years

Roger Goodell at the NFL Draft.

Two weeks from tonight, the 2018 NFL Draft will begin. An off-season full of mock drafts, rumors and speculation will come to an end.

Every year, there are some schools that are more represented than others during the draft. Their players always seem to have their names called early and often.

Over the last 10 years, a handful of programs have produced more than their share of top-10 picks. Their names won't surprise you.

Alabama leads the way with nine top-10 picks in the last decade. LSU is second.

The rest of the top seven (there's a three-way tie for fifth) looks like this: Texas A&M, USC, Georgia, Clemson and Ohio State.

As you can see by that tweet from Gil Brandt, Alabama's string of nine-straight top-10 finishes is equally as impressive. Ohio State has made it eight of nine.

Who will add to their totals in two weeks? Ohio State (Denzel Ward) and USC (Sam Darnold) look like locks. Alabama (Minkah Fitzpatrick) and Georgia (Roquan Smith) seem like pretty good bets as well.

The 2018 NFL Draft will be held April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
