He was in the top five of Bruce Feldman’s “Freaks” list for all college football players this year and he plays in the SEC. No, not for Alabama, LSU, or Georgia, but for Kentucky. Although Alvin “Bud” Dupree might not garner the national recognition that most players in the Southeastern Conference do, the senior edge defender is a player that should be in the spotlight and will most likely hear his name called early in next year’s NFL Draft.

Texas A&M faced Arkansas in a tough Southeastern Conference matchup on Sept. 28 that turned into a high-scoring affair.

Led by the redshirt sophomore connection of quarterback Johnny Manziel and wide receiver Mike Evans in the passing game, Texas A&M came out victorious 45-33. While Manziel and Evans garnered most of the attention with a solid game, there were many players in the matchup with potential to play on Sundays.

There will be no shortage of NFL talent on the field in Saturday’s college football matchup between Alabama and Texas A&M. Alabama has been an NFL factory in recent years, while Texas A&M features perhaps the most notable college football player in the world in Johnny Manziel, one of the many big-time prospects in this game.

Southeastern Conference rivals No. 6 South Carolina and No. 11 Georgia matched up on Sept. 7 in an aggressive, tough battle early in the college football season. It was a close game most of the way, but Georgia came out on top in a 41-30 win.

The game was also full of potential draft prospects for the 2014 NFL draft. I took a look at how some of them fared throughout the course of the game.

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.
