Dartmouth in less than a minute . . .

No FCS school in the country can match Harvard's 13 players in NFL camps as preparations begin for the 2017 season. The Crimson website offers up details on each of the players, 11 of whom were in the league last year.

A Hero Sports breakdown of players in camp from each FCS school lists James Madison, North Dakota State, Montana and Illinois State tied for second behind Harvard with nine players each.

Per Hero, here is the breakdown of the 23 Ivy League products in NFL camps per school:

13 – Harvard
4 – Penn
2 – Princeton
2 – Brown
1 – Columbia
1 – Cornell

Dartmouth and Yale do not have players on rosters at the start of camp.

The Big Green had four players give it a shot over the past year with center Jacob Flores '16 under contract for the better part of a year with the Green Bay Packers and corner Vernon Harris '16 with the Kansas City Chiefs. Linebacker Flo Orimolade '17 signed this spring with the Los Angeles Rams and safety Charlie Miller '17 with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but both were released before the start of camp. Don't be surprised if at least one of the Big Green's four ends up signing with another team.
