3. University of Florida: 45
When Urban Meyer became the head coach in Gainesville in 2005, he rebuilt the road that took University of Florida football players into the NFL. But even after Meyer’s departure, the pipeline of players established remained quite full, as evidenced by the number of guys being drafted in recent years. Over the last three NFL Drafts, the Gators have produced first round picks like defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. (2015) and linebacker Jarrad Davis (2017). Then there are cornerbacks Vernon Hargreaves III, Jalen “Teez” Tabor, and Quincy Wilson, or safeties Keanu Neal, Marcus Maye, and Jaylen Watkins. If you go back a few years, you can also include offensive players like linemen (and brothers) Maurkice and Mike Pouncey, tight end Jordan Reed, and running back Mike Gillislee.
