Which colleges lead the way when it comes to producing NFL talent? It likely won’t surprise you to see who tops the list of colleges with the most NFL players on 53-man rosters heading into week one of the season.
As of Sept. 3, 2018 and the announced 53-man rosters heading into the regular season, LSU, Alabama and Florida top the list.
LSU can almost field an entire 53-man roster on its own, with 50 former Tigers on initial 53-man rosters. They have two more players on 53-man rosters than fellow SEC team Alabama and seven more than Florida.
Behind Alabama’s 48 players and Florida’s 43, Miami, Ohio State and USC each have 40 alumni in the NFL on 53-man rosters. Florida State, Clemson, Auburn, Georgia and UCLA round out the teams with at least 30 alumni on NFL 53-man rosters.
