There are 1,696 players in the NFL in a given season, taking the 53 players on every one of the 32 rosters across the National Football League, and college football programs are the principal training ground for franchises to poach talent from.

And as is the case across the NCAA level currently, the SEC and Big Ten are the two primary sources of talent when looking at NFL rosters heading into the 2024 season, and it's those two conferences, the chief beneficiaries in this year's conference realignment, and are turning the most players pro.
