The Big Ten has altered divisions for 2014, going to an East-West format that is geography based after three seasons of the “competitive-balanced” Leaders and Legends Divisions. Each school will play the six other schools in their division, plus two cross-division foes. Not all cross-division foes are created equal, though, and I rank the draws in this post.
The Big Ten had 30 players taken in the just completed NFL draft. But plenty of good players go undrafted every year and end up making NFL rosters and often having good careers. Some notables: Kurt Warner, Tony Romo, John Randle, Priest Holmes and Wes Welker.
The 2014 NFL draft is in the books. And, the Big Ten was well-represented. Things got off to a good start on Thursday during the first round, when the Big Ten had four picks.
