The Big 12 just made history for all the wrong reasons.

One of the traditional Power 5 conferences, the Big 12 was originally established in 1996, or roughly 25 years ago. Since its inception, the conference had produced at least one first-round draft in every NFL Draft, according to Drew Davison with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

That mark fell Thursday night in an embarrassing fashion as the conference failed to register a single pick to begin the 2021 NFL Draft. The Big 12 was the only Power 5 conference without a first-round pick.

By comparison, Alabama alone produced six picks in the first round with the SEC seeing 12 players selected in the opening round. The B1G was second in terms of conferences with seven players drafted Thursday evening. The Pac-12 produced three first-round selections.

For further comparison, the AAC saw two players selected in the opening round with Tulsa LB Zaven Collins (No. 16 overall) and Houston DE Payton Turner (No. 28). North Dakota State of the FCS produced the No. 3 overall pick with QB Trey Lance.

Needless to say, that is not a night to remember for the Big 12.
