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.
