Dienhart: Check out Purdue's 10-year NFL draft snapshot

Purdue has had some surprising success in the last 10 NFL drafts, with 19 overall selections and three first-round picks. Not bad for a program that has been to just four bowls in the last 10 years. Linemen have been the most common picks, with six coming on defense and five on offense. The Boilermakers’ ability to produce defensive ends/outside linebackers has been remarkable, with the likes of Ryan Kerrigan, Anthony Spencer, Cliff Avril, Ray Edwards and Rob Ninkovich coming off the board in recent years. And the “cradle of quarterbacks” has had two picks, with Kyle Orton and Curtis

Latest Big Ten QB buzz includes Buckeyes' timeline to name a starter

Urban Meyer wants to name a starting quarterback by the middle of Ohio State's training camp (pssst, Ohio State's spring game is on BTN/BTN2Go Saturday). And there's a QB battle at Rutgers, too. And where dopes Jake Rudock fit in at Michigan? We take a spin around Friday's Big Ten headlines.

Randy Edsall Q&A: 'Our guys have a lot of confidence'

Maryland enjoyed a successful Big Ten debut in 2014, going 7-6 overall and 4-4 in conference play. That allowed the Terps to finish in third place in the uber-tough East Division highlighted by roads victories at Penn State and at Michigan. Now, it’s time to keep developing.

Dienhart: Check out Penn State's 10-year NFL draft snapshot

The NFL draft has been good to Penn State the last 10 years, as the Nittany Lions have produced 36 picks. That total is more impressive when you consider Penn State had no picks in 2005. The program has lived up to its billing as “Linebacker U,” producing nine picks at that storied position in State College, Pa. No other position has produced as many NFL picks over the last 10 years for PSU. The Nittany Lions also have been fertile on both lines and in the defensive backfield. The offensive skill spots? Not so productive. There are several Nittany

Big Ten links: Run through a handful of Spring Football headlines

Update on Penn State's and Ohio State's offensive line. A look at football helmet safety ideas. Where will star running back Tevin Coleman land? And a crazy mascot story involving a horse. BTN.com's Tom Dienhart scooped up the top Thursday headlines and offers them up ... right here.

Dienhart: Check out Ohio State's 10-year NFL draft snapshot

Prolific. There is no other way to describe Ohio State’s performance in the last 10 NFL drafts. It’s a proverbial football factory in Columbus. But, I think we already had an inkling of that.

Dienhart: Should Frank Kaminsky have his No. 44 retired? Yep

Should Wisconsin retire Frank Kaminsky’s No. 44? Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal thinks so. And, I agree. Kaminsky was a transcendental player who took this program to heights it hadn’t seen in generations.

Big Ten Links: Jake Ryan on paying players, Bo Pelini's house & more

OK, we have another opinion in the endless debate on if players should be paid. This time, it’s ex-Michigan LB Jake Ryan weighing in. And he doesn’t think players should get any loot. “If (someone is) a winning coach, so be it, pay them what you think,” Ryan said to Matt Shepard of WDFN. With the whole paying student-athletes thing, you’re getting an education. You’re getting a Michigan degree, that’s what I got. You get that throughout your four or five years and I think that’s perfect. You work hard towards that, that’s what I worked hard towards. “That, and
