    Other than Tom Brady, we seldom see any offensive skill players do anything

      I’m not keeping track of other schools, but sometimes I wonder if that’s such an odd thing. If you think about other top college programs, how many of them have multiple stars playing in the NFL, especially in the same position group? Alabama has a few, Clemson, Ohio State, LSU maybe, and then… I dunno. I mean, Notre Dame has no noteworthy quarterbacks, no noteworthy running backs, Golden Tate at wide receiver, a couple decent tight ends (Eifert, Rudolph), and that’s about it. Penn State has Saquon Barkley at running back…ummm…Allen Robinson at receiver, no quarterbacks. Mike Gesicki had one good week, I guess.

      Again, I’m not keeping a running tally, but I just don’t think any one program dominates the landscape in the NFL. A lot of perfectly decent programs have just a few contributors at the NFL level.
