Curious about how many players from FCS schools have been drafted in past years? Want to know who went in the first round, or who was the first one taken off the board? Check it all out below.
When the NFL went from 12 rounds to seven rounds in 1993, it changed the complexion of what you see below, so we started with that first year instead of going back to the beginning of I-AA/FCS in 1978.
Here are the number of players based on FCS programs at the time drafted since 1993. — broken down by 1st round, Day Two (2nd and 3rd rounds) and total picks in all seven rounds.
I began covering the FCS for HERO Sports in the Summer of 2015 and it was love at first sight. It was the perfect blend of two previous career stops -- the approachability and grounded nature of being around high school athletics combined with the high-end talent and impressive fan bases of big-time college football. After stops in the newspaper world and The Sporting News and PARADE Magazine, I'm happy to be here as HERO Sports' FCS Coordinator.
