  • For ranking SEC programs for producing quality NFL players, must only active players be considered, or can we look into the past?

    • For this purpose, just active. But you can throw in the past if you wish.

      • If we stick with current players only, then LSU and Tennessee are vying for the top spot. In fact, except for the Jamarcus Russell debacle, I can’t think of any of the current large crop of players they have who aren’t producing (Although I would like to see Jabari Greer pick up a little slack downfield. I’m still stewing over the awful pass coverage the Saints put up against the Packers.)

        However, in historical terms, I think Alabama can claim the title for QBs. How can I say that? The first three Super Bowls were won by Alabama QBs.

        • According to the Alabama Football Media Guide, Bammer has 5,378,907 current and former NFL players dating all the way back to 2827 BC which is the same year they won their 9th National Championship.

  • Emanuel Cook plays safety for the Jets, not Jared. Jared plays TE for the Titans, so the Total for South Carolina should be 22, not 21. No relation, BTW.

  • I don’t know about the other teams but Alabama has more than 23 on the current rosters. He may be third on the depth chart but J. P. Wilson is still with the Falcons.

  • If you are counting numbers then sure Randy.

  • As much as I hate to admit it, Tennessee wins this one hands down. That list of NFL players is ridiculous.

  • Quality not Quantity. Bart Star, Joe Namath, Ken Stabler, Shuan Alexander, Roman Harper, DeMeco Ryans, Andre Smith, Rolondo McClain, Julio Jones, Wallace Gillberry, Kareem Jackson, Marcell Dareus. All of which have either won a super bowl, hall of famers, future hall of famers, and current starters on NFL rosters

  • I think he said active not former dude, but if thats how you want to play it.
    Here is a list of every Tennessee player to go into the NFL: http://www.databasefootball.com/players/bycollege.htm?sch=University+of+Tennessee.

  • I think you didn’t really read his last sentence. The fact that you want to argue it as him posting this in response to the article and not as just a related set of facts for ONE team is totally subjective to you lukeallen.

    • well you caught me and i wont deny it but come on man how can you argue with the list he put up that Tennessee is the best pro factory in the SEC in the last 20 years? I remember NFL channel and SI did ratings on the best recent pro factories and Tennessee was #5 in the SI one and in the top 10 in the NFL one. I am totally biased because it is my team but come on man if you tell me that UT inst producing top tier football players you are out your damn mind.

    • how did I get logged in under Chris Duncan idk sorry Chris. but that whole post was mine and not his.

      • Haha that’s kind of weird. But I never said Tennessee doesn’t put out quality NFL players. I was just backing up Tideroller’s post is all. No disrespect to UT’s player history.

  • Jon, well since this is an SEC website and it is always fun to poke at other SEC schools currently LSU is the top of the heap simply because it has the most players CURRENTLY “key word being currently that is why it is capitalized” in the NFL. So rock on Tigers with a big GEAUX TIGERS.

    But I feel that us SEC-ites should be proud as hell of that list from top to bottom, I have to believe 283 current NFL players “I hope that math works out, no calculator on hand and I did graduate from the SEC so who knows” is tops from any conference out there. We should be all proud of the caliber of football our conference plays and the talent we have in the conference, I know I am!!!! To me this just proves “that is if the last 5 national titles don’t the SEC is the best in the land and if you want to be the best than come down and play the best in the SEC, that is if you have the stones to do so!!!! — Geaux LSU and Go SEC!!!! — Keep up the great work!!!
