Here's a look at Indiana in the last 10 NFL drafts

The draft pickings have been slim for Indiana over the last 10 years with just 12 selections. The Hoosiers didn’t have any selections in 2012 or 2013. And they also went pick-less in 2007 and 2009. And where are the linebackers? The last Hoosier LB picked was Van Waiters in 1988. The last time Indiana had a first-round pick? You have to go back to 1994, when wideout Thomas Lewis went No. 24 overall to the Giants. That could change this year, as offensive tackle Jason Spriggs could be a late first-round selection.

Here's a look at Illinois in the last 10 NFL drafts

The NFL Draft is fast approaching, taking place in Chicago from April 28-30. So, let’s take a look at how Big Ten teams have fared in the last 10 drafts, from 2006-2015. First up is Illinois, which hasn’t had any selections in the last two drafts. It marked the first time in program history that it failed to have a player selected two years in a row. (The other low point was from 1970-72, when just one Illini was selected.) The Fighting Illini also had no picks in 2006. The best bets to be picked this year are defensive end

Here's a final look at Big Ten's early 2016 NFL Draft entrants

The deadline for players to enter the NFL draft early was Monday, Jan. 18. And, no Big Ten team—or any squad in the nation, for that matter–had more defections than Ohio State. The Buckeyes saw nine players bolt, highlighted by the early departure of defensive end Joe Bosa, who some feel will be the first pick in the 2016 draft. In all, 20 Big Ten players turned pro. No other Big Ten team had more than two players leave. Eight schools had at least one player bolt. Here is a look at the Big Ten players who are leaving early:
