NFL: Preseason-New Orleans Saints at Houston Texans

The NFL Draft is just around the corner on May 8th. SDS will take you around the SEC to look at every team and just how many players they have put into the league over the last five years.

South Carolina’s emergence has been fun to watch under Steve Spurrier.

And it will add more this season, with maybe the top overall pick in Jadeveon Clowney and defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles, among others.
