University of Washington Huskies produce plenty of NFL prospects, so many that the program is ranked 16th in NFL Draft picks overall.
As of today, the Washington Huskies stand as the 16th ranked University in terms of producing players selected in the NFL Draft. But with a roster voted as the top impacted by the 2017 NFL Draft, you can expect that ranking to improve by next year.
Still, at 287 selections, the Huskies are 21 players behind 15th ranked Michigan State with 308 selections. But with up to eight players added to that list, it’s likely that gap will close ranks this season.
You see, the Washington Huskies have some seriously talented players entering the NFL this year. So much so that some pundits have penalized the teams 2017 projections simply because the talent exodus is so incredibly significant.
But fear not Huskies fans, the 2017 football team has already begun tuning up for the upcoming season. Furthermore, they are already enhancing areas of strength and filling in areas where reinforcements are needed.
