2013 NFL Draft by Conference

The 2013 National Football League Draft has come and gone.  Which conference sent more players on the the NFL via the draft this year?  Well, not a hard guess, but here are some numbers for you anyways!!

SEC  Once again, the SEC is one top with 63 total players selected in the 2013 NFL Draft. 

 

Pac 12  The PAC 12 came in 3rd with 28 players drafted.

Big 10  The Big 10 had 22 players drafted.  As so did the……..

Big 12 The Big 12 Conference.  And of the 6 BCS Conferences, bringing up the rear was the……..

Big East  Big East with 19 players drafted.

How good are the SEC’s numbers?  24.8 percent of those drafted this year came from the SEC.  33 of the first 99 players selected were from (you guessed it), the SEC.  It is the 7th straight year that the SEC has lead all conferences when it comes to NFL draft picks.  How many BCS titles have the SEC won in a row?…………..wait for it…………..Right!!!  7 in a row.  Is there a connection here?  You tell me.
