The SEC dominates the NFL Draft

The SEC has more players taken in the first round of the NFL Draft than any other conference, and it is not even close.

Over the last 10 drafts, nearly one-third of all players taken in the first round (88, 28%) played football in the SEC. The ACC comes in second with 56 players, followed closely by the other three so-called “Power-5 conferences,” the Big 12, Big Ten, and Pac-12.
