2017 NFL Draft picks: SEC sets record for selections over first two rounds
It seems there's a lot of talent in the SEC
Myles Garrett was the first pick in the NFL Draft, kicking off a record run for the SEC in the first two rounds.
There were 64 players chosen in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft, and nearly a third of them (21) happened to play in the SEC.
Of the 21 SEC players chosen, Alabama had the biggest contingent with seven -- a full third of the SEC players chosen.
And before you go using that to prove that the SEC is held up by Alabama you should know that, even if you remove the seven Alabama picks, the 14 remaining SEC picks would still be more than any other Power Five conference had through the first two rounds.
Here's a breakdown of the first two rounds by conference.
Big Ten: 10
Big 12: 2
Sun Belt: 1
So yeah, if anybody asks you if the SEC is still good, the NFL certainly seems to think so.
