    COLLEGE CHARACTERISTICS AND THEIR IMPACT ON ADVANCING PLAYERS INTO THE NFL by Kwiecinski, Nathan

    This thesis analyzes the impact of college characteristics on the advancement of players into the NFL by examining data from the BIG-10, BIG-12, ACC, and SEC college football programs over the years of 2015-2017. By using an ordinary least squares regression, it is found that recruiting class rank, coach’s salary, average attendance and strength of schedule resulted in having a positive effect on advancing players into the NFL.
