OBSERVATIONS

• Florida State is the new leader. Last year it was West Virginia.

• Only one FSU player was acquired by the Eagles via the draft: Josh Sweat. Nigel Bradham was originally signed in free agency while Ronald Darby and Tim Jernigan were acquired through trades.

• WVU still leads the Eagles in most players drafted from one school.

• Howie Roseman’s #GatorBias took a big hit with Trey Burton, Jaylen Watkins, and Alex McCalister now gone. Matt Jones’ roster spot isn’t necessarily a lock, either, so it’s possible the Eagles open the season without a single Florida player on their roster.

• Despite the fact Chip Kelly and his #DuckBias have been gone since December 2015, the Eagles still have three Oregon players on their roster. And the Pac-12 is now the most well-represented conference, overtaking the SEC’s lead from last year.

• I still maintain that Joe Douglas has something of a #VirginiaBias.
