Big 12 Ranks Last in Predicted Number of First Round NFL Draft Picks

While the Big 12 Conference has seen numerous athletes selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in previous years, the 2024 NFL Draft class of Big 12 athletes appears to be a little light.

In a recent list from Bet Online, the Big 12 Conference had the fewest expected first-round draft picks of any power conference ahead of the upcoming draft.

 

The 2023 NFL Draft featured six first-round selections from the Big 12 Conference, with Texas Tech‘s Tyree Wilson, Texas‘ Bijan Robinson, Iowa State‘s Will McDonald, TCU‘s Quentin Johnston, Oklahoma‘s Anton Harrison, and Kansas State‘s Felix Anudike-Uzomah. BetOnline set the league’s 2024 first-round total at 3 and 1/2.
