#BuiltByBama: Six former-Alabama players named to Pro Bowl, most in the NFL

Alabama led all schools, while the SEC led all conferences.

I know that we hit on this earlier in the week, but for those who didn’t catch the Jumbo Package yesterday, it is worthy of a stand-alone piece:

Six former-Alabama players were named Pro Bowlers on Tuesday evening — two safeties, two linebackers, and two wide receivers: Amari Cooper, Dont’a Hightower, C.J. Mosely, Julio Jones, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Landon Collins.

Alabama’s six total Pro Bowlers topped all schools represented. While LSU leads all programs with 44 former players on NFL rosters, it only produced two Pro Bowl players. The school in second place, Florida, sent four to the Pro Bowl. Georgia and Texas A&M each sent three to the all-star game.

Six Pro Bowlers is an Alabama record. It’s almost like talent matters, you guys.

Fox breaks down the programs, some surprising, that had the most all-stars.
