TEN players from FIVE different SEC schools taken in the first round. That’s more players taken in the first round than the Big 12, Pac 12, and Little Ten COMBINED. The closest competition was the ACC, which had six players from four schools taken in the first round.

Week in and week out, SEC teams play the best possible talent. Another NFL Draft proves it.

Joe, you know that the SEC cant develop talent because they play so many fcs and non-power 5 teams all season long according to the “anti SEC envy group”. Where are their envy thoughts?

The NFL takes the BEST players. There is no bias. There is no conspiracy. Just the best athletes that can help their teams win football games.

And more of those players come from the SEC than any other conference. Those are indisputable facts.

The silence from the haters is deafening.

SEC broke records this year in the draft, good for them! NFL knows where to go, I was a bit surprised that Mayfield was picked 1st. Not sure if it was a good thing for the Browns since he has an attitude & they have not been able to do anything with a QB in 20yrs. Mayfield reminds me a little of Johnny Manziel.
