Missouri has long been a program known for producing high drafts picks along the line of scrimmage and has another NFL-ready talent in senior center Evan Boehm.
2013 super recruits Robert Nkemdiche, Laremy Tunsil and Laquon Treadwell could give the Rebels its first trio of first round picks in school history but if you're looking for the best NFL prospect in the SEC, you'll have to look elsewhere.
With Marcus Mariota and Leonard Williams gone, the Pac-12 may have a hard time duplicating last year's success in the NFL draft. But make no mistake, the conference is once again loaded with talent. How good is it? Arizona's All-Galaxy linebacker Scooby Wright III barely makes the cut. In fact, the Pac-12 boasts arguably the nation's top quarterback, senior prospect regardless of position and even best overall player.
With a modern-day record NFL-record 29 draft picks over the past three years, it's no surprise Florida State has dominated the ACC. The Seminoles once again boast the top prospect in the conference with the versatile Jalen Ramsey.
In redshirt junior quarterback Patrick Towles, Mark Stoops and his Kentucky Wildcats boast one of the more intriguing breakout candidates in the SEC. The surprisingly dual-threat Towles and veteran defenders Josh Forrest, A.J. Stamps and Melvin Lewis could have scouts flocking to Lexington.
Should CB Vernon Hargreaves elect to leave school early for the NFL, the Gators might once again boast the highest drafted player from the SEC in 2016. Florida is much more than just Hargreaves, however.
Mike Leach and the Cougars may have to replace the record-setting duo of quarterback Connor Halliday and wideout Vince Mayle, but he'll have one of the better tackle-guard combinations in the country in seniors Joe Dahl and Gunnar Eklund.
No program enjoyed a better start to the 2015 NFL draft than the University of Washington with four players selected among the first 44 picks. That success, however, has left the cupboard a bit bare for head coach Chris Petersen.
Devontae Booker proved more freight train than sports car a year ago, leading the Pac-12 with 1,512 rushing yards despite averaging just 10 carries a game in Utah's first three contests. Will Booker's determined, powerful running style convince scouts he can succeed in the NFL despite lacking ideal speed?
Quarterback Cody Kessler should put up Heisman-worthy numbers in Steve Sarkisian's pro-style offense but NFL scouts may wind up even more interested in some of the linemen blocking for him or hyper-active defender Su'a Cravens.
