Wild stat proves Alabama’s dominance in the NFL

The debate will likely live on forever: which college program produces top-tier NFL talent? While it might seem difficult on the surface, in reality it’s not. It’s Alabama, by a long shot.

Nick Saban has had a player selected in the first round of the NFL draft in 14 consecutive seasons, with 41 total players going in the first round. His former Crimson Tide players have earned over $1.6 billion in NFL contracts alone.

During the 2021 NFL season, former Crimson Tide members played more NFL snaps than any other college, by a wide margin. Alabama’s offensive and defensive players lead the way with 35,225 snaps, nearly 8,000 more than second-place LSU and more than double sixth-place Michigan. The mountain is that high and the gap is that wide.
