Cool article from TBB.
I'll save you time, Nebraska-3. Always fun to see the numbers though.

A geographical breakdown of where the NFL draftees came from -- and how that jives with where the colleges sign their recruits. (Florida native Trent Richardson, pictured).
Not surprising. The 3 top recruiting states are Texas, Florida, and California. I think every body knows that. 4/5 are Georgia/Ohio.
Guess i don't really get the point of breaking down what is aready perceived as true from literally every knowledgeable fan in the country.
Even if you want to break it down by conference, you have the 4 power conferences in the SEC, B1G, Pac 12, and ACC. Obviously you have the SEC and ACC getting their recruits from the most talent rich region in the entire country in the SE. The Big 12 pulling from Texas and the Pac 12 from Cali.
That leaves the B1G and Big East alone in trying to 'compete' against the other 4 power conferences in the richest recruiting beds in the country. Fantastic, so water is wet?
What IS interesting to me is the B1G had 41 players drafted. 2nd only to the almighty SEC's 'dominating' 42.
By the way I wasn't knocking your post as the full numbers breakdown is interesting, I just don' t understand the real point behind the original post as it seems to be accepted by everybody in the country as fact/common sense.
