I found this link for the NFL Draft history and though it would be interesting to compile some Missouri Valley info.

Very interesting. Pretty even across the board for the most part, that surprises me.

Agreed that it's pretty even across the board, what surprised me is that Western Illinois turned out to having the most success.

NDSU high draft number is a bit skewed because most of their players were drafted in the 70's in round 12 and never took an NFL snap.
