SEC Teams With Most NFL Draft Picks Over Last 10 Years

In the last decade the SEC has claimed the throne as college football’s top conference – not to mention the best talent producing league for the NFL. In total the SEC has sent 461 players to the NFL, 90 of which were first round draft picks.

From 2004-2013, LSU led the conference with 61 selections, followed by Georgia (58), Alabama (49), Florida (46) and Auburn (36).

LSU is also tied with Alabama for most first round draft picks at 14. Florida sits third with 10, followed by Georgia and Tennessee at 8 each.

Kentucky is the only team in the league to not have a first round selection in the last 10 years.

Following is a breakdown of both the total NFL Draft picks and first round selections for each school. Players from Texas A&M and Missouri over the past decade have been included (despite the teams being in the SEC for only two seasons).
