  Which CFB teams surprisingly produce the most NFL draft talent? When compiling the results of the last 10 NFL Drafts, the schools with the most players selected are largely the ones you’d expect. USC and LSU lead the way with 62 picks apiece since 2007. Alabama, Ohio State and Florida all have 55 or more, while Georgia, Florida State and Oklahoma all top 50 apiece. Last year’s national champion, Clemson, is next up with 45.All of that makes sense. Talent usually equals wins, and those powerhouses have the most resources to get that talent (and the victories that come with them).

Jay Cutler and the Odd Offseason of QB Movement .

Not only is it downright weird to think of the perennially sour Cutler as some future aw-shucks Collinsworth. It's weirder to think of the 34-year-old Cutler as not good enough to start anymore in the NFL. And weirder still to think of the employed and unemployed at the most important position in sports.</p>THEY'RE STARTING
