You don't have to look far to find ACC talent in the NFL.

Every team in the league has at least three players from ACC schools, and the conference has a total of 249 players in the league as the season begins tonight in Green Bay.

Despite a recent downturn on the field, Miami leads the ACC in NFL players with 44. For the first time since expansion, Maryland is second with 28, edging Florida State, which is down to 25 from an ACC-best 46 in 2006, and North Carolina (24).

The total of 249 is a six-year low for the league, down five from last year's opening-day total and 22 from the high-water mark of 271 in 2008.
