493 posts in this topic

Only one SEC player. Wish we would show more interest in their players.

holy crap. Do people really think that conference matters when it comes to how they perform in the pros?

Great players come from all over the place.

So, I'm gonna try and do articles on each one of these guys as the Falcons show interest in them. May not be amazing, but it's something to help. hopefully I get around 100 of them done by draft day.

I mostly agree of course, but thats a chit load of all pros just this year from the SEC.

SEC Leads Nation With Record Number On NFL Rosters

The Southeastern Conference leads the nation with an all-time high 340 former players on opening weekend 53-man active rosters.

‘Tis the time of the year when former SEC players are evaluated on how well their season went, and 13 former players made the NFL’s first- and second-team All-Pro.

RELATED: Several former SEC players were named to the Pro Bowl

Peyton Manning was selected as the unanimous first-team All-Pro quarterback, and Tennessee led the All-Pro team with three Volunteers. Cordarrelle Patterson was the only rookie to be named an All-Pro player. How did Derek Dooley not give him the ball more?

Here’s a look at 12 former SEC players who made it, along with one player from Missouri who played in the Big 12:

  • Peyton Manning, QB, Denver, First Team (Tennessee)
  • Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay, Second Team (Alabama)
  • AJ Green, WR, Cincinnati, Second Team (Georgia)
  • Jason Peters, OT, Philadelphia, First Team (Arkansas)
  • Evan Mathis, OG, Philadelphia, First Team (Alabama)
  • Greg Hardy, DE, Carolina, Second Team (Ole Miss)
  • Justin Smith, DT, San Francisco, Second Team (Missouri in Big 12)
  • Karlos Danzby, ILB, Arizona, Second Team (Auburn)
  • Patrick Peterson, CB, Arizona, First Team (LSU)
  • Joe Haden, CB, Cleveland, Second Team (Florida)
  • Eric Berry, S, Kansas City, First Team (Tennessee)
  • Cordarrelle Patterson, KR, Minnesota, First Team (Tennessee)
  • Dexter McCluster, KR, Kansas City, Second Team (Ole Miss)

The Southeastern Conference leads the nation with an all-time high 340 former players on opening weekend NFL 53-man active rosters.

340. out of 1,696. That still means there's 1356 players that ARENT from the SEC on 53-man NFL rosters. Which makes my case even more that you don't focus on just one conference.

the seniorbowl site ... it was on the front page ... if its not any more go to the photo gallery

http://www.seniorbow...ry.php?alb_id=9

DE Dee Ford and DB Jaylen Watkins

I keep getting an error message that the site can't find the gallery in that link. On another note, I will fix the North roster in the original post to reflect what they actually had to work with since there were some late drops and adds some time this weekend.

It would have been nice if he put the first name as well but I think it's safe to assume he means Greg Robinson.

You don't need to watch many Virginia Tech games to doubt his ability as a QB... Good athlete though.

what's so crazy two years ago he played hood enough for scouts to say he could be a second rounder. But he has looked horrible since
