Alabama Football: Will Crimson Tide again lead NFL with most players?

Despite the hoopla surrounding the Georgia Bulldogs' 15 NFL Draft picks in 2022, Alabama Football remains the top in NFL players. 

Even if all 15 selected Georgia players join NFL clubs next fall, the Alabama Crimson Tide are likely to remain the top programme for NFL players.

Eighty former Alabama football players were on NFL rosters heading into the 2022 preseason.

By the start of the 2021 season, the Tide had 53 players on active rosters. That figure lead all colleges, with LSU being the next closest SEC institution and Georgia trailing well behind.

After the 2022 NFL Draft, there will be 74 former Alabama football players on NFL rosters.

When current free agents sign new contracts, the number will rise to or near last year's total of 80. Julio Jones, Landon Collins, AJ McCarron, and Reggie Ragland are all likely to join new clubs or sign new contracts. James Carpenter might play in his 11th NFL season.

Perhaps Ohio State, LSU, Georgia, and Notre Dame will one day overtake the Crimson Tide in terms of NFL talent. It will not be available in the 2022 season.
