Nice picture of Yale & Harvard. Really guys don't you research your pictures. I think a notable that was undrafyed, yet made pro bowls & dominated until a career ending injury is Chad Lewis. He was undrafted but may have been the most successful pro out of Utah in the '90's.

Interesting to note that BYU had virtually the same number of draft picks in the 1990s (19) as in the 2000s (21), and their W/L record, top 25 rankings, and bowl success is very similar for both decades.
Also interesting to note that Weber State had more players drafted (4) than Utah State (2)... that trend is definitely changing directions.
I wonder what research has been done on collegiate success and placement in the NFL. Please trolls, not need to comment on the "Bronco can't get anyone drafted"... we already know how y'all feel about that. I simply want to know if there is any documented correlation between collegiate success and the number of players drafted. Does anyone know?
