The “U” is the NFL’s version of the minor leagues

The University of Miami may not be the powerhouse that they once were in the ‘90s, but they sure can produce NFL caliber players.  For 14 straight years they have produced a first-round draft choice and the “U” was the top college for producing NFL players on opening day rosters with 44.  The rest of the schools were Florida State 37; rivals Michigan and Ohio State along with Georgia 36; LSU 35; Tennessee 34; USC 32; Florida 30; Notre Dame 28; Auburb and CAL 27

Also USA Football announced its annual list of high schools with the most NFL players with two schools Dillard HS in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (ex.  Carolina DB Chris Gamble) and Tustin HS in Tustin, California (ex. Falcons OT Sam Baker) leading the way with six players.
