The pads came on Tuesday morning as the East team took the field for its second day of practices at Shorecrest Preparatory School in St. Petersburg, Fla., as more than 50 senior 2015 NFL draft hopefuls took the field once again with a chance to impress scouts and media in attendance.

It looks as though this week’s East practices, run by former NFL head coach and Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary, might not have as much value for evaluators as West practices, as Singletary and his coaching staff have insisted on running offense vs. offense/defense vs. defense for extended portions of practice, along with significant segments of special teams sessions.

Still, there were a number of players who stood out across a variety of positions Tuesday—many for good reasons, but a few because they look overmatched.

The Southeastern Conference set the record for most players selected from one conference with 63 players selected during the 2013 NFL Draft. This included 12 first-round picks, which tied the record for most from one conference.

The last time the SEC did not have the most players selected in the NFL Draft was 2006, when it finished third behind the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big Ten Conference.

The SEC is full of talent. Led by top prospects in South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews and Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley, it doesn’t appear that SEC dominance will end anytime soon. In addition to the top prospects, the SEC is full of talent from top to bottom.
