SEC Sends 53 Players To NFL...

on Sunday, April 30, 2017

NFL (SEC) Football Draft:

For the sixth time in the last seven years, the SEC once again led the nation in first-round NFL Draft selections.

The SEC produced 12 opening-round draft picks, followed by the Big Ten (7), Pac-12 (6); ACC (4), Big 12 (1), AAC (1) and MAC (1).

The 12 opening-round selections ties the SEC and all-time national record. For more notes on this year's draft, CLICK HERE.

The SEC led the nation's conferences in draft picks for the 11th consecutive year in 2017. The last time that the SEC did not top the conference draft list was in 2006, when the ACC had 52, the Big Ten had 41 and the SEC had 37.

The SEC has averaged over 50 selections per draft since 2006. A total of 21 SEC players were taken in first two rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft , the most by a single conference through the first two rounds in common draft era.

The nation-leading 53 NFL Draft picks are the third most in SEC history, trailing only the 63 in 2013 and 54 in 2015.

Twelve SEC programs saw at least one player taken in the 2017 NFL Draft, with nine of those schools seeing multiple selections.

Alabama became the first team in draft history with seven players selected during the first 55 picks of the draft and the first with nine players chosen during the first 80 picks. The Crimson Tide led the SEC with a school-record 10 draft selections.

The SEC had 12 First Round picks in 2017, four more than the eight (8) the league produced in 2016.

During the last 11 NFL Drafts, the SEC has a nation-leading 101 players taken in the opening round, an average of over nine per season.
