The Southeastern Conference dominates college football to such an extent that a quarter of the new talent coming into the NFL this year comes from that conference.
Of the 254 players drafted over the last three days, 63 of them came from SEC schools. That’s more than double the number of draft picks that any other college conference produced. The ACC was second with 31 picks, while the Pac-12 was third with 28 picks.
Although an ACC school, Florida State, led all colleges with 11 players drafted, the other four schools in the Top 5 all came from the SEC: LSU And Alabama had nine each, and Georgia and Florida had eight each. Another SEC school, South Carolina, tied Rutgers for sixth place with seven players drafted.
SEC football is the closest thing to the NFL on Saturdays.
