Now that the deadline for underclassmen entering the NFL Draft has passed, it's time to check in on the programs hit the hardest by early departure and, yes, it's the SEC that took the brunt of early exits.

While the NFL has yet to announce the final tally, the deadline for underclassmen to declare themselves eligible for the 2013 draft was yesterday, January 15.
