<p id="question" class="alert alert-info"><strong>What NCAA program sends the most talent to the NFL?</strong></p>
<p>The NFL draft is an inadequate method of determining the answer to that question. Players drafted in the later rounds often don't make a roster, while undrafted players often do. Salaries are a better way to judge each player's value.</p>
<p>Organizing salary numbers by conference, college, and position provides an interesting look at where NFL talent comes from. A few notes:</p>
<ul>
<li>Salaries aren't a perfect indicator of talent, though better than draft or player numbers.</li>
<li>Each player's salary is <strong>the average per year of their contract</strong> as reported by <a href="http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/">spotrac.com</a> before the season.
</li>
<li>Each player is attributed <strong>the college they finished with</strong>, so Russell Wilson is Wisconsin, not NC State.</li>
<li><strong>Conferences are year-specific</strong>, so Andre Johnson is Big East (2002) while Jimmy Graham is ACC (2009).</li>
<li>
