USC Trojans Most Pac-12 NFL Draft 2011 Picks, Cal & Stanford 2nd; Colorado Buffaloes Most First Rounders

The California Golden Bears and Stanford Cardinal still can't beat the USC Trojans when it comes to producing pro-worthy talent. USC put up nine players in the 2011 NFL Draft, and even when you discount the players from the sixth and seventh rounds (free agent territory), even when you had three Trojans picked up LATE in the seventh round, they still have five guys who are very likely to make an NFL roster next spring.

Cal and Stanford finished in a tie for second with (surprisingly) the Colorado Buffaloes (who had the most first round picks of any Pac-12 team), with four each. Here's a summary of all the draft picks from Pac-12 football teams.
