OK, everyone has had a few days to digest how their favorite pro team fared in the draft. We decided to take a look at the "Power 5" conferences and see how they did.
Included is a listing of each "Power 5" school's number of draftees in the 2000s and their most recent first-round pick. If a player is designated with an asterisk, it means he was the earliest selection from a school that had multiple first-round picks that year.
LSU led the way with nine draftees this year. Alabama and Notre Dame had eight each, and national champion Florida State had seven. Auburn, which fell to FSU in the national title game, had four draftees.
» The ACC had 42 players selected, second-most among the college football conferences. It was the third time in four years that the ACC finished second.
» Every ACC school had at least one player selected, led by Florida State with seven.
» There were five first-rounders, second-most among the conferences.
» Position of interest: The ACC's most popular position was cornerback, with nine selected.
School-by-school look at the ACC in the draft in the 2000s:
» Four draftees, no first-rounders (most recent QB Dave Brown in the 1992 supplemental draft) | Duke draft history
The buzz: CB Ross Cockrell went in the fourth round this year, just the third Duke player since Brown went in the first round in the supplemental draft in 1992 to go earlier than the sixth round.
