Big East Preview 2009: Top NFL Prospects and Games To Watch

Posted by Dan Kelley on August-16-2009 Add Comments

Although the Big East is not considered as deep and talented as leagues like the SEC or Big XII, college football fans will still be able to turn on a Big East game on any given week and see a number of future pros.

The Big East fared quite well in the latest NFL Draft, producing 27 total draft picks. While that total was less than that of some of the other major conferences, the Big East actually had more players drafted per team than any other conference due to the Big East’s smaller size.

Among those 27 players drafted, nine were taken in the first two rounds, making it the most productive conference by average in the top two rounds as well.
