* Last year wasn’t a great year for prospects inside the state of Louisiana.  Not so in 2011.  Of the Tigers 22 signees, 16 were homegrown.

* The Tigers needed to find a replacement for defensive tackle Drake Nevis and they hope they found that man in the person of five-star signee Anthony Johnson.

Kiper: Top 3 NFL Picks All From The SEC

Mel Kiper has published his latest mock draft for April’s NFL selection meetings and, as usual, the SEC sits at the head of the table.

Check this out:

1.  Carolina Panthers — Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn

2.  Denver Broncos — Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU

3.  Buffalo Bills — Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama

In addition, Kiper has AJ Green (#6 to Cleveland) and Cam Newton (#10 to Washington) in the Top 10.  That’s half of the top 10 picks in the draft coming from just one conference.

Overall, Kiper projects 10 SEC players to be taken in the first round…

* Julio Jones (#14 to St. Louis)
* Mark Ingram (#15 to Miami)
* Mike Pouncey (#19 to the New York Giants)
* Justin Houston (#24 to New Orleans)
* Ryan Mallett (#25 to Seattle)

… which means 10 of the 32 best players in the country — in Kiper’s view — came from the SEC.

Not too shabby, eh?

NFL Lures 15 From The SEC (Updated)

The announcements have come and gone and all told the SEC will lose twelve underclassmen to April’s NFL draft.  So much for coaches warning their players about an impending lockout in the pro league.  Looks like agents’ warnings of a rookie salary cap coming with the next collective bargaining agreement carried more weight.  Better to get your deal now — and sit — than to risk injury in 2011, then go pro under a cap.

Below are the SEC’s departing fourteen.  Obviously, a lot of talent is walking out the door.

Darvin Adams, WR, Auburn

Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky

Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama

Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn

AJ Green, WR, Georgia

Tori Gurley, WR, South Carolina

Will Hill, FS, Florida

Justin Houston, LB, Georgia

Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama

Julio Jones, WR, Alabama

Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas

Cam Newton, QB, Auburn

Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU

Jerrell Powe, DE, Ole Miss

Stevan Ridley, RB, LSU

(Typed the list and done and went and left Nick Fairley’s name off.  Sorry.  It happens.  Also added Darvin Adams, whose decision has now been reported by two sites.  Also added Jerrell Powe’s name to the list.)
