During the NFL draft, fans will take a look at how many prospects have come from certain college football programs. However, there is currently one high school that has produced more 2014 draftees than some of the biggest college programs.

St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Florida has won seven state championships and two national titles thanks to a ton of talented players over the years. This year, the Raiders have already produced four draftees in defensive back Lamarcus Joyner (Rams), safety Dezmen Southward (Falcons), offensive lineman Brandon Linder (Jaguars) and running back James White (Patriots).

According to the high school team's official Twitter account, this is the fifth time at least two players from St. Thomas Aquinas have been drafted in the same year:

These four players also helped break the school's previous record of three prospects taken in a single draft, which occurred back in 2010:

Four prospects in one draft is impressive enough, but the fact that they were all drafted before a single Texas Longhorns player is even more impressive.
