Data and Methodology
We extracted data from pro-football-reference.com which included 30,000 players from 500 colleges who had been drafted in the NFL throughout its history.
We then collected the coordinates for each college and converted all the data into a geojson file, which allowed us to pin them all on a map. The radius of each college on the map is representative of the number of players in that particular category.
