Truth in numbers: Scoring A&M's jump from the Big 12 to the SEC

February 16, 2017
5,134

A recently released list of players invited to participate in the NFL combine showed that Texas A&M, with nine, will have half as many players participating as the 10-team Big 12 Conference. It does raise eyebrows that one team would produce 50-percent as many prime NFL prospects as an entire “power five” conference.

Maybe that should not come as a surprise, though. Since exiting the Big 12 to join the Southeastern Conference in 2012, Texas A&M has frequently exceeded its former Big 12 brethren in many areas.
