How Important Is A Draft Prospect’s School?

Earlier, I made a comment on Twitter that Dallas Cowboys fans would probably not be terribly unhappy if the team wound up drafting either Chance Warmack or Jonathan Cooper (I know, my insight is dazzling), and I got a reply that got me to thinking.

@tomrylebtb @bloggingtheboys i agree with that, i just have more faith in alabama’s development of players than UNC’s…happy with either

A couple of thoughts. First, some people really, really need to rethink the names they use in social media. Really.

Second, is what school a player comes out of an indication of how likely they are to succeed in the NFL?
