The 2019 NFL Draft is over, and among college conferences, the SEC was the clear winner. As for individual schools, several really stuck out from the crowd as far as sending talent to the NFL.

The final tally of players drafted shows that Alabama led the way with 10 players selected in the draft. It is the third year in a row that the Crimson Tide has seen at least ten players selected.

And that doesn't even account for the players who are set to join teams as undrafted free agents.

Here is the breakdown of the top 10 schools that had the most players selected in the 2019 NFL Draft.

  1. Alabama - 10
  2. Ohio State - 9
  3. Washington - 9
  4. Oklahoma - 8
  5. Texas A&M - 7
  6. Georgia - 7
  7. Clemson - 6
  8. Ole Miss - 6
  9. Penn State - 6
  10. Auburn - 6

Unsurprisingly, half of the teams on the list hail from SEC schools with Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Auburn leading the way.

The Big Ten was the only other conference to have multiple schools in the top 10 with Ohio State and Penn State.

The Pac-12, Big 12, and ACC all had one school represented.

It may also be worth noting that all of the Power Five conference champions are represented on the list. That wasn't the case last year.
