NFL Draft demonstrates the perils of going to a top football school

Over half of the first round draft pics in the NFL draft came from schools that were not ranked in the top 10 of the college football rankings. This provides credence to the argument that recruits may be better off going to a smaller school where they can star vs. a larger school where they have to wait to show their skills in a game. This example is the basis of a paper written by my colleague Alex Dunn and I. We examine whether NFL draft pics are more likely to come from top football schools or less reputable football schools. Our results provide evidence to the argument that from a recruiting standpoint, recruits may be better off attending smaller schools.

DJ Week 8 – 15

This class became more stressful than I thought it would be, but I’m glad I took it. I have grown as a group member through this class and, out of all the classes I took this past semester, I think this one helped me the most for my future after college. Thanks Martha for a great year, and good luck wherever you go. See you at graduation!
