NFL Draft

Only 30 HBCU players have been drafted over the past decade

The NFL Draft in the past year has been interesting, but did you know that only 30 HBCU players have been drafted over the past decade?
FCS – D2 Total Drafted: 30
Tennessee State – OVC 5


Over the past 10 years, 30 HBCU football players have been drafted. That is not a lot considering that 255 players are drafted every year and in the last decade 2,805 players have been drafted.

Those are some pretty rough stats, the HBCU continues to be overlooked. They need to do something quick, because there are tons of solid players overlooked every year.
