For plenty of NFL fan bases across the board, there is no better time of year than draft season. Over the years, we've seen countless guys go on to make their alma maters proud with how amazing they've looked at the next level. The same will be the case with the 2024 class being loaded.

Having said that, which program has the honor of saying they've had the most first-round picks selected in NFL Draft history? The Top 5 is stacked, but the No. 1 spot on the list goes to Ohio State, as they've had a head-turning 90 playmakers hear their names called during Round 1.

Ohio State has 90 first-round picks in program history

You can expect that 90 to grow to at least 91 in '24, as wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is a lock to be a Top 10 pick. If the top four picks are quarterbacks, Harrison could land with the Chargers at No. 5 overall, or the NY Giants could bring him to East Rutherford with the No. 6 overall selection.

Throughout its history, Ohio State has produced a boatload of talent, which is no surprise as they've been one of the best teams in college football for a while now. With that said, who's behind them in terms of most first-round picks ever?

Checking in at No. 2 is USC with 85. Similar to Ohio State, they're going to see that number rise too, as quarterback Caleb Williams will (barring a major stunner) be the No. 1 overall pick to the Chicago Bears. At No. 3, we have a tie between Notre Dame and Alabama with 70 first-rounders. At No. 5, Miami isn't too far behind them with 67. All five of these teams are considered part of college football royalty, as they've produced an incredible amount of NFL superstars.
