Welcome to the fourth installment in our series to determine which schools have done the best job in recent years of producing top NFL draft picks.
You can check out the links below for our look at the schools who have done the best job of producing quarterbacks, defensive linemen and wide receivers. Today, we take a look at the schools who have done the best job of preparing and producing defensive backs.
For our analysis, we used the last 15 years of the NFL draft. In each draft, we looked for defensive backs who were drafted in the first three rounds. For the purpose of this analysis, we included all players listed as safeties, cornerbacks and defensive backs in the NFL.com draft history web site.
Below the school rankings we also have more data on schools and conferences that have produced defensive backs at football’s highest level. Plus, we have more interesting information on the defensive back position group.
One school has produced nine NFL first-round defensive back draft picks in the last 15 years. Is it Miami (Fla.), Ohio State or Texas?
