I like the lack of context.  
Based on?
Time frame?

I think running backs and linebackers and offensive linemen go to UW to thrive.

There are lots of each on NFL rosters too.

I counted 31 for UW last year. I think it's at 40 now, with the draft and UDFA.

At the height of Dantonio, MSU did a really good job of WR and CB.  Maybe an iron sharpens iron situation.

I'd say that Purdue is great at developing WRs.

They were.

I can't name one between like 2004-2017 though.

Now it seems like they are amazing at identifying receivers.  I'd like to say they are developing them, but they show up, and are amazing.

Florida's been great at DL and DBs, in the past 10 years.  And having QBs transfer out.
