After spending the summer doing our first evaluations for 2017 NFL draft, a few teams emerged as being particularly loaded with prospects.

The ranking below is not necessarily a reflection of who I think the best teams will be this year. It's simply a look at which schools enter the season with the most talent that's eligible to declare for the 2017 NFL draft (so true/redshirt freshmen and true sophomores weren't included here).

We start in a familiar place, with Alabama featuring top-end talent that rivals Ohio State's 2015 roster in terms of draft prospects.

Here are the five college football teams stacked with the most 2017 NFL draft talent.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide
