Draft Domination: Through Three Rounds, 32 SEC Players; ACC Next With 12

nfl-draft-podium-tightEight SEC players were taken in the second round of the NFL draft Friday night.  Another twelve were selected in the third round.  Combined with the 12 players picked in round one, the SEC can claim 32 of the 97 players (includes compensatory picks) taken so far.  That’s basically one out three coming from America’ s best conference.

Here’s how the SEC stacks up to other power conferences.

SEC – 32

ACC – 12

Pac-12 – 11

Big 12 – 8

Big East – 8

Big Ten – 7

Here’s Friday night’s SEC breakdown:

Second Round

TN – Justin Hunter, Tennessee

MSU – Darius Slay, Detroit

MSU -Johnthan Banks, Tampa Bay

LSU – Kevin Minter, Arizona

FL – Jon Bostic, Chicago

USC – D.J. Swearinger, Houston

AL – Eddie Lacy, Green Bay

A&M – Christine Michael, Seattle

Third Round

KY – Larry Warford, Detroit

LSU – Bennie Logan, Philadelphia

LSU – Tyrann Mathieu, Arizona

TN – Dallas Thomas, Miami

A&M – Damontre Moore, New York Giants

GA – John Jenkins, New Orleans

GA – Shawn Williams, Cincinnati

FL – Jordan Reed, Washington

AU – Corey Lemonier, San Francisco

LSU – Sam Montgomery, Houston

ARK – Knile Davis, Kansas City

MO – Zaviar Gooden, Tennessee

* With two players taken in the first round, one in the second and three in the third, LSU now has six players selected in the draft, the most of any SEC team.

* Two of LSU’s selections, linebacker Kevin Minter and defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, are headed to Arizona where they’ll be reunited with former teammate Patrick Peterson. Mathieu and Peterson were roommates in 2010. Mathieu is expected to play safety for the Cardinals.

* Alabama three first-round picks were followed by just one player on Day Two of the draft.  Eddie Lacy, projected by many as a first-round pick, fell to the bottom of the second round.  He wasn’t even the first running back taken.  Three others preceded him in round two.

* Tennessee’s Justin Hunter won’t have far to travel, making the move down Interstate 40 from Knoxville to Nashville. The Titans have made four picks and three of them are on former SEC players.  After taking Alabama’s Chance Warmack in the first round and Hunter in the second, Tennessee used their second of two third-round picks on Missouri linebacker Zaviar Gooden.

* Florida linebacker Jon Bostic is headed to Chicago where he could be asked to fill the shoes of departing Bears star Brian Urlacher.

* Five teams shut out of the first round had players taken Friday night. Arkansas, Auburn, Kentucky and South Carolina all had one player drafted while Mississippi State had two with defensive backs Darius Slay and Johnthan Banks.

* Georgia had a defensive back taken Friday night but maybe not the one a lot of people expected.  Safety Shawn Williams is headed to Cincinnati, joining a bevy of former Bulldogs drafted by the Bengals.  Teammate and fellow safety Bacarri Rambo has yet to be taken.

* Of the 14 SEC schools, only two failed to generate a draft pick in the first three rounds- Ole Miss and Vanderbilt.

* Here are a few household name SEC players that have yet to get their ticket punched: quarterbacks Tyler Wilson of Arkansas and Tyler Bray of Tennessee, Alabama center Barrett Jones and who will pull the trigger on South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore?  The draft concludes today with rounds four through seven.
