Makeover Monday: Which SEC Schools Have Most Alums in the NFL?

No comments
Last week, Saturday Down South posted this table, which shows the number of players over the last decade from each SEC college football team that played in the NFL.  Current stars are noted.

Simple enough, yet so annoying that they aren't sorted in descending order, though it is true that an alphabetical sort is faster for finding a team. Magnitude is also more difficult than necessary to understand in a table.

With a few simple clicks, I created this interactive version in Tableau.

On my version, the bars are ranked and I included the % of total SEC players in the NFL for each team to give the numbers more context.

You can download the data here and the workbook here.
