If we're going to look ahead to the draft, we might as well look at where NFC West teams find their players.

The chart shows NFC West roster composition by college conference. The totals include all players, not just draft choices.

The ACC leads the way among NFC West teams thanks to the Seahawks' league-leading total featuring Matt Hasselbeck, Koren Robinson, Kelly Jennings, Josh Wilson, Darryl Tapp, Leroy Hill, Mansfield Wrotto, Steve Vallos, Walter Jones, Ray Willis, Sean Locklear, Will Heller and Baraka Atkins.

Leaguewide, the SEC holds a slight edge with 263 players, followed by the ACC (248), Big Ten (216), Pac-10 (178), Big 12 (171), Big East (87), Conference-USA (70), Mountain West (67) and WAC (63).
