Todd McShay of ESPN currently has 10 SEC players going in the first round and seven of them are underclassmen. It is up for argument whether or not he is an ‘expert’, though.

Here is the lineup and projections as of right now:

No. 3 Morris Claiborne, LSU – Minnesota Vikings
No. 4 Trent Richardson, Alabama – Cleveland Browns
No. 6 Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
No. 13 Courtney Upshaw, Alabama – Arizona Cardinals
No. 15 Mark Barron, Alabama – San Diego Chargers
No. 20 Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State – Dallas Cowboys
No. 22 Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina – New York Jets
No. 28 Jarvis Jones, Georgia – Pittsburgh Steelers
No. 29 Melvin Ingram, South Carolina – New England Patriots
No. 31 Johnathan Banks, Mississippi State – New England Patriots

Four of the 10 are Alabama players, and seven of the 10 hail from the SEC West.

Jarvis Jones also said he would be returning to school, but a first round projection comes with a nice little price tag; so, I’m sure we haven’t heard the end of this one.





"Thank you for making it so easy to keep up with my team.
You provide SEC fans with an amazing, free service!"

  1. Jarvis Jones didn’t even submit paperwork. He’s not leaving. I love how bloggers don’t take players at their word anymore.
