| FTBL SEC has 46% MORE draft picks than the Big Ten over the last five years BUT just 31% more NFL starts over the same period. Why?

It's the math. The draft is a one-time event. A player can only be drafted once. Starts occur 16+ times a year. A player may or may not start several times in a year based on the game plan, injuries, suspensions or some other reason. If a player starts half of the 16-game season, is he a starter?

Injuries as well, maybe?
