Stanford tied a school record with six players selected in the 2014 NFL draft, helping the Pac-12 rank third among conferences with 34 players taken.
The 14-member Southeastern Conference topped the list with 49 draftees, followed by the Atlantic Coast (42), Pac-12 (34), Big Ten (30), Big 12 (17), Mountain West (16), American (12), Conference USA (nine), FBS independents (nine), Mid-American (eight) and Sun Belt (four).
In the Pac-12, Stanford was followed by UCLA with five draftees and Oregon with four. Arizona, Arizona State and USC each had three players. California, Oregon State, Utah and Washington each had two draftees and Colorado and Washington State each had one.
Five of Stanford's picks came in the last four rounds of the draft. UCLA, Oregon State and Washington State get extra credit for producing the conference's first-round picks.
Looking ahead to the 2015 draft, quarterbacks Brett Hundley of UCLA and Marcus Mariota of Oregon are potential first-round picks, and the Ducks also have prime candidates in center Hroniss Grasu and cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu.
