Where's the SEC in the NFL?

99 posts in this topic

Very few SEC players at the the top of the NFL. Are we being misled?Qb's Brees, Brady, Roethlisberger, Luck, RGIII, Ryan, Flacco, Romo, Wilson, Kaepernick, BradfordRb's ADP, Rice, MJD, Martin, Lynch, Gore, Foster, Bush, Morris, Spiller, CJ2K, Forte, Bradshaw, SJax, McCoy, CharlesWr's Megatron, AJohnson, Marshall, VJax, Thomas, Bryant, Wayne, Welker, WhiteJJ Watt, Wake, Matthews, Miller are the Sack leadersKuechly, Bowman, Greenway tackle leadersNone of these players were SEC when they came to the NFL...I guess I am tired of hearing about all non-SEC players not ready for the NFL.

Basically, I took the names from the stat leaders from CBSSports.com. No doubt these players are good, but the SEC does not dominate the NFL.The media (espn) would like us to believe the world of football would not exist without the SEC.

No doubt these players are good, but the SEC does not dominate the NFL.The media (espn) would like us to believe the world of football would not exist without the SEC.your list is missing quite a few big names and largely ignores the OL and defensive side of things--where there is a bevy of SEC talent. The link below is an overview of the past 10 years of SEC players transitioning to the NFL. A look at the draft summaries for each year is staggering considering these players came from 1 conference. Take for example 2011. 5 of the 1st 6 picks of the 2011 draft played in the SEC in college and the one guy who didn't, Von Miller's alma mater now plays in the SEC--so that's all 6 players who played for a school that's now in the SEC. Newton, Miller, Dareus, Green, Peterson, Jones. Those guys are legit too. The SEC's dominance isn't just a product of media hype. http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2012/08/sec-ten-year-nfl-draft-conference-case-study.html/2

The SEC is pumping players into the NFL, but I do get how some people would question the media hype. Look at the key players in the Super Bowl, there are certainly SEC players playing important roles but overall it is far from a landslide.

No doubt they have good players, but the SEC has not produced the Best QB, RB, Wr, Sack Leader, Leading Tackler...etc.Alabama, LSU & Florida have been good over the last decade and espn tries to convince the country that all the SEC is doing great. Sorry...

Sorry...Ummm... the SEC did produce the best QB. Also, the best pass-rusher per PFR comes from a school now in the SEC, and the SEC doesn't have the best WR, but it has three of the top 5 in Green, Julio, and Harvin.

Very few SEC players at the the top of the NFL. Are we being misled?Qb's Brees, Brady, Roethlisberger, Luck, RGIII, Ryan, Flacco, Romo, Wilson, Kaepernick, BradfordRb's ADP, Rice, MJD, Martin, Lynch, Gore, Foster, Bush, Morris, Spiller, CJ2K, Forte, Bradshaw, SJax, McCoy, CharlesWr's Megatron, AJohnson, Marshall, VJax, Thomas, Bryant, Wayne, Welker, WhiteJJ Watt, Wake, Matthews, Miller are the Sack leadersKuechly, Bowman, Greenway tackle leadersNone of these players were SEC when they came to the NFL...I guess I am tired of hearing about all non-SEC players not ready for the NFL.

JULIO JONES AND AJ GREEN lol

My biggest surprise when reading H. Snowman's list was that Alabama is sort of in the middle of the pack in terms of players. I think at times that SEC fan acts like there are no other good players or good teams in other conferences, but they have won the last 7 BCS titles and have more dudes in the NFL than any other conference. While you may want to tell SEC fan shut the bleep up, the facts say that for about the last 10 years that conference has been that darn good.

Simply look at previous draft charts to see how terribly flawed this post is.

Just the facts...go ahead and give us a some great SEC QB's? Who did I miss?
Manning, Manning, Newton, Stafford, Cutler--all as good or better than Bradford & Romo

This. OP, just take a gander at the link provided a couple posts upThank you. You are making my point. The SEC is a lot of hype. No doubt they have good players, but the SEC has not produced the Best QB, RB, Wr, Sack Leader, Leading Tackler...etc.Alabama, LSU & Florida have been good over the last decade and espn tries to convince the country that all the SEC is doing great. Sorry...AJ Green, Arian Foster, Patrick Willis, Jerod Mayo.......Harvin isn't too shabby.

p peterson, claiborne, newton, harvin, bowe, ridley, richarson off the top of my head.

Basically, I took the names from the stat leaders from CBSSports.com. No doubt these players are good, but the SEC does not dominate the NFL.The media (espn) would like us to believe the world of football would not exist without the SEC.
The station that paid 2.25 BILLION DOLLARS for SEC rights has a bias? When will people stop polluting their minds by consuming what the crap factory in Bristol produces?
They pay for rights for everything and hype everything. They hype senior bowling. No one pays attention to them anymore.
You can't possibly be comparing the hype for the SEC to the hype for...bowling? They have commercials for bowling, but almost never mention it on the air. Meanwhile, they base all-day programming around pushing the SEC, to almost a cult-like extent. And people who still watch ESPN by habit regurgitate it in a similar fashion.Sarcasm. Rating ESPN hype is a worthless exercise in my opinionIt's not so much rating as it is stating the obvious that people come out of the woodwork and parrot the stupidity about the SEC, Tebow, LeBron, or whatever buzz topic they got "informed" on today...Don't disagree, but to say that SEC success in the NFL is an ESPN invention is ridiculousYes, yes it is. But their bias of the SEC is second only to super-fandom.

Sorry...Manning has been the best QB several years. Obviously towards the end of his career now.His little brother has 2 rings.Cam has done quite well for himself as well as Stafford.If you are fishing congrants.If not...Im sorry for your family.The SEC is doing great.And yes, Arian Foster has been one of the top 2...if not the best RB...and they had a heck of a rookie in Richardson this year.AJ Green and Julio are top WR talents.Patrick Willis one of the top LBs.And it goes on and on and on.But you don't seem to want to hear that.
