Alabama won the national championship — with just one first-rounder in the 2016 NFL draft.

The second round started Friday night, and the Tide players still in Chicago waited awhile longer.

Finally, linebacker Reggie Ragland was selected, No. 41 overall, going to the Buffalo Bills. That started a flurry of five Tide players coming off the board.

Here’s a look at the SEC’s second-round picks:

  • No. 35 Hunter Henry, tight end, Arkansas (San Diego Chargers)
  • No. 37 Chris Jones, defensive tackle, Mississippi State (Kansas City Chiefs)
  • No. 41 Reggie Ragland, linebacker, Alabama (Buffalo Bills)
  • No. 45 Derrick Henry, running back, Alabama (Tennessee Titans)
  • No. 46 A’Shawn Robinson, defensive tackle, Alabama (Detroit Lions)
  • No. 49 Jarran Reed, defensive tackle, Alabama (Seattle Seahawks)
  • No. 52 Deion Jones, linebacker, LSU (Atlanta Falcons)
  • No. 60 Cyrus Jones, cornerback, Alabama (New England Patriots)
