The Falcons Love to Draft Sooners


(source: YardBarker)

Since the Atlanta Falcons first draft in 1967, they have drafted more players from the University of Oklahoma than from any other school.

Oklahoma was the top school of choice in the 1980s as well. In the decade of the 2000s, Virginia Tech was the most popular choice.

Florida State was Atlanta’s favorite in the 1980’s. Southern Cal in the 1970s and Houston in the 1960s were also popular choices.
