SEC Produces 12 Of 32 First-Round Picks In NFL Draft

nfl-draft-podium-tightAs expected, the Southeastern Conference set a new standard in talent production last night in New York.  In Round One of the 2013 National Football League Draft, a whopping 12 ex-SEC players were selected by professional clubs.

Seven different schools were represented in that batch of first-rounders.

The league also produced six of the first 15 picks overall:

 

  1st Rd Pick   Player   Position   School   NFL Team
  2   Luke Joeckel   OT   Texas A&M   Jaguars
  6   Barkevious Mingo   DE   LSU   Browns
  9   Dee Milliner   CB   Alabama   Jets
  10   Chance Warmack   OG   Alabama   Titans
  11   DJ Fluker   OT   Alabama   Chargers
  13   Sheldon Richardson   DT   Missouri   Jets
  17   Jarvis Jones   LB   Georgia   Steelers
  18   Eric Reid   S   LSU   49ers
  23   Sharrif Floyd   DT   Florida   Vikings
  29   Cordarrelle Patterson   WR   Tennessee   Vikings
  30   Alec Ogletree   LB   Georgia   Rams
  32   Matt Elam   S   Florida   Ravens

 

Interesting First Night Tidbits:

*  Alabama led the way with three first-round picks, all of them going back-to-back in slots nine, 10, and 11.  Some projections had had the Tide with as many as five first-round picks.

*  Florida, Georgia, and LSU each had two players selected in Round One with Tennessee and SEC newcomers Missouri and Texas A&M each producing one player.

*  The Minnesota Vikings sent an eye-popping four picks to the New England Patriots for the right to trade up and grab Patterson, the former Tennessee receiver.

*  Eight of the SEC’s 12 first-rouunders will be playing in the AFC this fall.  Three will be featured in the AFC North alone (Mingo to the Browns, Jones to the Steelers, and Elam to the Super Bowl champion Ravens).

*  The New York Jets (Milliner, Richardson) and the Minnesota Vikings (Floyd, Patterson) each nabbed two SEC players during the draft’s first round.

*  With six rounds remaining, the SEC needs 30 more selections to match its 42-man count in the 2012 NFL draft, the most players sent from any one conference last year.
