Every NFL Draft, there are certain school names you hear over and over. Miami. Ohio State. Alabama.

What is it that makes those college programs so good at churning out NFL players?

John Clayton aimed to get to the bottom of that on the latest episode of Schooled, so he brought in ESPN.com’s Luke Knox, who happened to cover that exact topic in a recent article.

Clayton talked to Knox about the schools that produce the most Pro Bowlers and long-term starters, as well as where the Washington Huskies and Washington State Cougars fit into the landscape. Also, Knox shares an interesting fact about how the case of Russell Wilson tipped some data pertaining to quarterbacks.
