5. University of Miami: 44
USC and Alabama may have dominated college football in the 2000’s, but the legacy built by the University of Miami Hurricanes from the early 1990’s onwards is perhaps unmatched in the nation. While the current program is a far cry from the squads that dominated the early 2000’s, Miami still boasts a ton of talent currently on NFL rosters. Ageless running back Frank Gore is one of the few remnants of those great Miami teams. Defensive lineman Calais Campbell, who’s been one of the best defensive players in football in 2017, came out of Miami.
Running backs like Lamar Miller and Duke Johnson Jr. followed in Gore’s footsteps. The list of NFL tight ends from Miami is really impressive: Greg Olsen, Jimmy Graham, and David Njoku (taken in the 2017 NFL Draft).
