Widespread division of FCS draft choices
By CRAIG HALEY
(STATS) - Ten of the 13 FCS conferences had at least one player selected in this year's NFL Draft.
CAA Football, the Missouri Valley Football Conference and the Southland Conference led the way with three selections. The CAA increased its total in the 2010s to 25, breaking from a tie with the Southern Conference for the most in the FCS.
The Ivy League, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and Ohio Valley Conference had two selections each. The Big Sky Conference, Northeast Conference, Patriot League and Southern Conference had one each.
There were no draft selections from the Big South Conference, the Pioneer Football League and the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
The first FCS player selected came out of the MEAC when the Indianapolis Colts picked outside linebacker Darius Leonard in the second round (36th overall) Friday night.
