What colleges and conferences have the most players on the Arizona Cardinals roster?

With news of the Pac-12 realignment with USC and UCLA joining the Big 10 (have fun with those November games!), you may be wondering what college the majority of the Arizona Cardinals roster comes from.

Well, not only did we find out the leader, turns out that we have three schools that are tied for that lead. As for the leaders, here they are:

  • LSU: Rashard Lawrence, Darrel Williams, Jontre Kirklin
  • Cincinnatti: Justin Murray, Myjai Sanders, James Wiggins
  • Washington: Byron Murphy, Budda Baker, Zeke Turner

Those are totally the schools you expected to see, right? Chances are probably not, but it’s a testament to these programs to churn out NFL prospects year after year. Cincinnati is the newcomer here, but it could be the beginning of something great for the BearCats.

LSU, Cincinnati, and Washington dominate the school makeup for the Arizona Cardinals. But what conference has the most players on the roster?

As for the conferences, we have another tie for the top spot:

  • First place: SEC and Pac 12 (18 percent)
  • Third place: ACC
  • Fourth place: Big Ten

The SEC has ruled over the college football landscapes for most of the millennia, and the way their facilities are set up with the best equipment and coaches, it’s no wonder that the SEC makes up a big part of the Arizona Cardinals’ roster.

The Pac-12 being tied with the SEC is interesting and probably has to do with it being more accessible to scout. Hence the Cardinals have a handful of players from the west coast due to their location.

The Big Ten rounds out the top four, with players such as J.J. Watt and Rondale Moore representing the Midwest.

Will the Big 10 be the leader in 2024 after they make their move? Time will tell.
