How many players from that game have been drafted since that game? It's gotta be over 30, maybe 40.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Is that more, or less than the number arrested?
Is that stat from before or after the draft?
I remember hearing 31 before the draft but I'm not sure.
buckeyes are used to that word
That's amazing from that game alone
Is that before the later rounds? 27th was a Saturday, didn't they have a few rounds on Sunday?
Also, we have 7 guys that got picked up undrafted but I'm not sure if that counts.

Yup, 31. 11 first rounders and 8 second day picks. So 19/31 were picked in the top three rounds as well.
Opening day roster # and practice # will be interesting.

Yeah it will be. It's very interesting seeing how many of the players are elite players not just mid tier players selected in later rounds.
From the 2001 National Championship, 38 members of Miami's team alone were drafted. I forget how many were drafted from both teams combined, but I think that's the current benchmark.
It says on wiki it was 42. 38 or 42 is still a lot.
From the '02 Championship game, more than 80 players played in the NFL at some point, crazy.
That number will definitely grow next year. Doesn't LSU have some more NFL players to be drafted from that game? I know we have probably 5-6 more who will be drafted at least.
Ah, yeah, whatever number it is, that's basically saying half the freaking roster got drafted. Not even played in the NFL, but actually got drafted. I shudder to think how many total players from that team ended up playing a down in the NFL at some point.
Yeah we played 15 Freshman in 2011
More that were on that team that may get drafted -
HaHa Clinton Dix
What may be amazing is this past years NC game on the Alabama side - Add all these above and add in:
Best guess to what could have drafted from last years NC team:
3 WR's - Cooper, Norwood, White
1 TE - Michael Williams
The ENTIRE OL (5) - Fluker, Steen, Jones, Warmack, Cyko
1 QB - AJ McCarron
2 RBs - Yeldon , Lacy
Yep that's the entire starting 11+Yeldon on offense
3 Dline - Williams*, Dial*, Pagan
6 LBs - Johnson*, DePriest, Hubbard, Mosley, Dickson, Devall
4 DBs - Milliner*, Belue, HaHa, Collins
Thats wthe starters plus a few that played in different packages. Everyone of these should be drafted.
I may have missed a few tho..
I seem to remember that game, threw flag then all Da U people went to
'05 USC v Texas ended up having 58 players drafted
texas usc wasa a talent fest.
nothing compares to the canes 2000-2002 roster in terms of future nfl stars. insane talent level.
2011 bama lsu should climb pretty high.
Ohio State vs Miami 02 Natl Title was the most talented game ever played. HANDS DOWN.
Who was on that OSU team? I can't remember anyone outside of Clarett for some reason.
My memory sucks.
