The point he makes about players from HBCU schools intrigued me as well. Doing a little bit of rudimentary research with PFR's Draft Finder tool, I managed to find out that from 2000 onward there have been 56 players drafted out of HCBU schools. Of those 56, twenty players were active in the NFL last season. Clearly, twenty represents a very small fraction (approx. 1.2%) of the total number of players comprising NFL teams. I'll try to look later to see how much of a difference in HBCU representation between now and the 70's and 80's there is as Walsh implies - if there is any difference at all.
