After being held in Las Vegas in 2022, the NFL Draft now takes place in Kansas City, the place that saw the Chiefs win another Super Bowl title this year.
By winning the Lombardi Trophy against the Philadelphia Eagles in February, Andy Reid’s team earned the right of occupying the final pick of the first round, as the draft order is decided on a worst-to-first basis.
The Chicago Bears, who owned the first overall pick after being the worst team in the league, traded the selection to the Carolina Panthers, who are expected to take a quarterback.
While the Houston Texans and Las Vegas Raiders have more picks than any other team, with both teams carrying 12 picks apiece, the Miami Dolphins enter the Draft with the fewest selections with just four after they were forced to forfeit a pick for multiple violations of NFL rules.
Which college has the most No. 1 picks?
While the NFL teams will be hoping to make great selections before the new season gets started, colleges will be looking to enhance their reputation by providing players that will have a positive impact wherever they end up playing.
But which college has the most No. 1 overall picks in the draft history? Since the NFL Draft began back in 1936, 51 schools have produced the top overall pick in the drafts so far and there’s currently a four-way tie at the top of the list.
Georgia DE Travon Walker was the latest No. 1 overall pick after the Jacksonville Jaguars selected him in last year’s draft.
That selection went down in history, as Walker became the fifth Georgia player to go No. 1 overall, tying the mark for most by a school alongside Notre Dame, Southern California, and Oklahoma.
