List Of Miami Hurricanes In The NFL

The University of Miami's football program has set multiple records in producing players who go on to the National Football League. The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004), most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (11, from 2003 to 2004), most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004), and most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004). For a 14-year period, from 1994 through 2008, Miami had at least one player selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season. During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored. The Miami Hurricanes are also 10th overall on the NFL's all-time number of draft picks with 307.

As of the 2012 NFL season, UM had the most players active in the NFL of any university in the nation, with 56, including players on NFL Practice Squads and Injured Reserves.

From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 17 players went on to compete in the NFL.

Over time, some sportswriters have called Miami 'Quarterback U' as a result of the number of high-profile quarterbacks who attended UM, including Jim Kelly, Bernie Kosar, Vinny Testaverde, Steve Walsh, Craig Erickson, Gino Torretta, and Ken Dorsey.
